Travel Blogs from Corfu
... we were up here i said goodbye to the three local dogs. We'd nicknamed one Smiley dog as it appeared to constantly be grinning, and when you gave it a fuss it'd get so excited it would wet itself.
Having skipped breakfast in place of coffee, we returned to Afros in Acharavi. We had a massive brunch of seafood: calamari, whitebait, tuna fritters etc. and then said our farewells to Costas and Chris. I'm sure we will see them again.
After fare-welling ...
... was only silence. We wouldn't be going round for dinner any time soon.
My parents went out to IKEA to look at white ware so I decided to stay home and look into Istanbul. *************.
Later that afternon we checked in on the house. The tiles downstairs have been laid and the place is really starting to come together. I'm jealous that by the time my sisters visits in July it will probably be finished.
We left ...
... flight to Istanbul on Thursday !
We decided to go and explore Corfu Castle, the older of two fortresses in the town. The fortress was huge, and had been in use for centuries.

Sitting on the castle walls we watched ...
... case someone slipped and sent him rolling down the cobblestones.
We watched the bands march through the town, finally congregating in front the Lindon cafes. Here they stood in the rain and played in turn, then marched back into the city.

... the beach, but we hung out at the beach bar all day until around 4 pm when we had to check out of the Pink Palace and start the long journey back to Florence. Corfu was hands down one of the best places we've visited so far. The people, the beach, the food, and the weather all made it such an enjoyable trip. But most of all it wouldn't have been Greece without staying at the Pink Palace: the number 1 party hostel in the world!
