Hello there :-)
I am planning a backpacking this year, primarily focussing on the Greek Islands.
I'll be flying into Athen at the start of July from Rome.
I hear island hopping is the best way and the easiest to see the islands?
I mainly want to know if accomodation is readily available when you arrive at the ports? And also what is the average cost per night? Can you barter them down?
Can anyone make any reccomendations on places to go or places that cater for the young, lone backpacker? Is it best to spend more time is less places or try and hop as many islands as possible?
I'm not particularly bothered about crazy drunken nights, just beautiful views, good walks and time to concentrate on my writing.
