We stopped at the port of Corfu. The only way to really get around the island is to take an excursion. At least it was for us. We were going to see a Monastery in the village of Palaiokastritsa and to the village of Gastouri to visit the 19th century Achilleion Palace.
The places were very beautiful and again the excursions didn't disappoint ...

We leave Corfu tomorrow by boat to Italy (me and Dali)/Albania (Phoebe) and meet up again in Lecce at the end of August.
p.s. if it's Tony, we're not coming back until the next election.
