Found 15th Jun 2010
so im going greece for a lads holiday to get gyal n what not. I heard your not meant to drink the tap water there as its different or something. Can I get greece tap water from the UK, I think ill start taking it now slowly, so when im there i dont have to worry about going to the shops every 2mins to buy a bottle, as my body would have adjusted to the PH levels of the water

thanks

attach a tube to your willy and recycle

Wow, i've heard some retarded questions in my time, but this just takes the biscuit.

Im probably wrong, but i don't think its cos of the pH levels that the water isn't safe to drink, i think its cos its not filtered as much as over here.

It is therefore advisable not to drink the tap water, but buy bottled water from the supermarkets. Because it can be quite hot in summertime, make sure you do drink enough to prevent dehydration.

Been said a few times before.... But

Surely your mommy will sort the drinkies out for you... so don't worry, just carry on building the sand castles.

You said you don't want to carry bottles of water around with you everywhere. I was just curious as to whether you have a hose that leads to your house when walking around in the uk or something of the like. Why are you writing in bold and have bg1 in the title also ? One might think your looking for attention.

If you are someone who gets stomach upsets easily then its best to drink bottled water. If however you are there for any great length of time you will get used to the local water and will be able to do the same as any local. If the locals are drinking bottled water, then best to follow their example.
