My Life in Ruins

Georgia is frustrated by the Greek lifestyle, because they don’t have a "life plan" and they take everything so lightly. They, in turn, believe life just happens, and that she takes things too seriously. Do you agree with either philosophy? What do you feel is the perfect balance?

For Georgia, Greece is all about history. For the tourists in her group, it appears to be all about ice cream. What do you look for in a holiday experience?
