First, thank you, thank you everybody, for the warm welcomming and of course, for your answers and great advices.
Is it normal that the properties are fully booked when you want to travel or is it easy to get?
As long as I am not going to a beach, I don't mind if it's off season. As many have mentioned, I like to avvoid the crowds. I went to Rome in October this year, and the weather was fantastic for sight-seeing and walking aound. I can't stand to go sight-seeing when the temp. is over 25 degrees celcius.
Claassenam: It's good to know somebody like my style! The only place I did have some trouble with it was in India...:-D At least I went to the mountains (I didn't *climb* :-)) with style! :-D
no-backpacker ... i suggest that you review the other thread, titled "How important are ratings here? How do you rate?" so that we all stay on topic. ratings have been discussedsubstantially in the community, and there are suggested guidelines, established by Luxury Link, thatare outline in the string mentioned above.this may prove helpful to you in regards to the ratings issue.
as a general rule, to keep the conversation logical, if you are 'going off topic' as you suggest, it is best to see first if another string or thread caters to your new subject,and if not,you start a new thread /post yourself.... otherwise, as you will soon learn, the community makes no sense.
asothers have suggested in the past, this is a self monitoring chat, and if we dont stick to some logic and rules, it will not make any sense to any of us...
