Corfu-Kerkyra # 1

If you are here reading this you will realise that I have not joined in with Fun Monday this week. Instead I'm beginning to relive my recent holiday to Corfu.

We arrived at our Hotel in the old port area of Corfu Town after dark so it wasn't really until the next day that we had a real look at where we were staying. Corfu has a very interesting history if anyone is keen to know more about this Greek Island that had strong ties with Britain.
Below is a picture of the hotel that I took from the square opposite. We had a room overlooking the sea and part of the port where they are planning to build a new marina.
Below is the view we saw every day we opened the small balcony doors. You can see mainland Greece in the background.
Looking to the left from our window we could see the new fort (will be telling you more about this another day).
Just opposite the hotel was a little square, where you could sit and enjoy the scenery. In the background of this last picture you can see Vidos Island and I took a lot of photos when we visited the island (will show you these in another post).
So this is my way of introducing you to an island, that has some beautiful coast lines, many churches and very friendly people.

Glad you had a wonderful time! Beautiful. I left Thursday and didn't get home till late Sunday night. I have been so busy since I got home I haven't had time to visit. Hoping my week slows down soon!
