I was asked if I was Greek 'or something' when I had spent some time in a sunny place and come home tanned.
I think my combination of looks makes it harder for people to relate me to physical appearance stereotypes. I am a 183cm-184cm(6'0 foot) tall guy with brown hair and eyes and pale skin, so I guess that makes me able to blend in rather well in most European countries. it gives me a rather generic appearance.
