Once upon a time cheap flights were not as easy to find as they are today. I had to take my time off work before the end of March. The only reasonably priced flights at that time of year were then to Crete and Corfu. So I have been to Corfu twice and Crete twice.

I did not stay long, as Corfu was not really my sort of island. What did I enjoy about Corfu?

  • walking in the streets of the old town
  • the museums
  • the old Venetian fortress
  • reading books about Corfu by Gerald Durrell and Lawrence Durrell - one of Gerald Durrell's books was being filmed when I was there.
  • the ferry to Paxos and the ferry to Igoumenitsa!
