Scandinavian paintball doesn’t start until mid to late May due to the cold weather conditions, so for this event headed south to warmer climates and HOT paintball.
This time we found ourselves on our yearly season kick-off trip with Slagen Bandits, heading to Thessaloniki, Greece and the newly formed Med League. When we left early on the 18th of April it was -5 c in both Norway and Sweden and as it would be in Scandinavia – snow. We arrived in the early afternoon in warm (+21c) Greece. We were met by our host, Konstantinos Papapanagiotou,owner ofAnthrax Custom Paintball Jerseys. He drove us to our hotel, which was a wonderful place and only fifty meters from the beautiful Greek beach and warm waters!
Once settled in we checked out our environment and the Greek food! Situated across from our hotel was a wonderful “fast food” restaurant that served authentic Greek Gyros! I was in heaven! The hotel that Kostantinos suggested was very nice and very reasonably priced. We would be joined by the marshaling crew as well as Brussels Crossfire in our hotel the following day.
