Hello - I have previously sought your advice regarding my May holiday to Greece. Clear;ly I had planned to pack too much into my 11 days there and a key message has been to do much less and have a far more enjoyable experience. THat is exactly what I will do. I suppose the issue is that Greece is such a long wasy from New Zealand and there is this worry that I will get all the way over there and not see the really important thngs - but the reality is that I cannot do everything.
Anyway - I was trying to anticipate where I would be on any given day while in Greece so that I could pre-book accommodation at really good rates and was doing quite well with doing that thrugh bookings.com. But now I am thinking that perhaps I should not pre-plan a lot of stuff and just have a general idea of what I want to do and essentially wing it when I get there. I will be in Greece frm the 30th of April to the 11th - possible the 13th of May.
I will be staying in Athens for a few days and then look to move out into other parts without incurring huge travel - going to places like Nafplio, Delphi and perhaps one of the Islands. I would love to get to Meteora but this may not be dooable.
So the questions for you helpful people are:
1. Do you think that it is sensible to try and pre-book accommodation or is this largelt unecessary at this time of year.
2. Is this time of year a busy tme for tourism or am I likely ti have no problem getting accommodation at sensible prices.
3. I guess the opposite to all of this is - do you think that it is sensible to just turn up and arrange accommodation on the fly. I am thinking that I could at least pre-book the Athens accommodation - at least for a couple of days anyway and extend as required.
