Like many people who are deeply entrenched in office work, I fantasize about learning to scuba dive and having a deep sea adventure.  I was particularly drawn to the idea of doing this in Greece and quickly began thinking about the civil unrest that's been happening in sections of Athens in particular.  If you are planning international travel, how much does news of events such as these play into your travel plans and planning?  Are you deterred completely?  Plan around and learn about the area you'll be visiting in order to avoid the hot pockets? Or, are you completely undaunted and want to go see what all the fuss is about for yourself?
