America Pulling Ahead

Another thing that I think is worth noting about living here in America as opposed to Greece is the abundance of technological advancement that we are seeing here. In Greece, people aren’t still using very outdated and huge computers or anything, but here in America people are tending to rely more and more on their smart phones and other forms of technology which I think is great. Not only does it make life easier, but it really shows how far this country has been coming as a whole when compared to others.

Anything You Need

I talked a little bit about it last time here, but I don’t think many Americans realize how amazing we have it here in regards to our tech. I think it has to do with our economy that is gaining speed again and allows us to have the ability and resources to develop and use this technology.


In Greece, it is much more rare to see people staring down at their phones all day long and using them for everyday living when compared to this country. Going off my roofing example earlier, looking up information on what is the best materials to use or where to find them is as easy as clicking a link.

Overall Comparison

Having lived in both Greece and America, I have seen a number of similarities and differences with what I see as pros and cons for both countries in regards to both the journalism and everyday way of living. Although I have gone in a few different directions with everything, the main reason I decided to bring this page back is because of my time working as a journalist in Greece and some of the major problems that they face in today’s day and age.

Where America Shines

So because of the censorship and fear of persecution for reporting on a number of different topics or beliefs, I think it goes without saying that America has it right in these regards and makes the country a much better and more favorable place in the world of Journalism.


Besides some lash back from certain interest groups or companies, the second amendment protects you from pretty much any sort of consequence from reporting on anything you choose which is absolutely the way it should be.

Where Greece Shines

As you may have guessed it from my last post, the scenery and breathtaking views that many homes in Greece have are like nothing that you will ever see anywhere else. The cool breeze blowing in your face while you are overlooking the stunning blue sea in front of you is honestly one of the most beautiful and amazing things I have ever been fortunate enough to experience.

The tourism in Greece truly is as amazing as the pictures make it seem.
