I'm planning on being in Athens for the entire month of August. Along with the warnings about how many tourists there will be, and how hot it will be, people are now telling me it may be dangerous because of the financial situation and the potential withdrawal from the euro-system. I understand that nothing can be predicted right now, but I'd like to hear some of your feelings about this, and will continue to query along this line as the time grows closer. I'd appreciate any responses, and best to all of you.
We are thinking of spending up to two months in Crete thru September and October this year. It is 30 years since we lasted visited Crete and are looking to spend some time in rented accommodation, probably using two different locations at different ends of the island, or one middle location. We will be travelling overland and with our own car. We like quiet places, with a bit of history close by, but with tavernas for eating out, probably within a half hours drive of the sea or closer. We are aware that many places will be closing down in October. If anyone has any suggestions of places we might like (not places like Malia which were once so beautiful) we would be happy to learn of them. Frangocastelli - a peek on Google Earth shows it is still seems relatively undeveloped, can anyone confirm this? Does anyone know what Sissi and Kritsa are like at in October? Thanks
