Went to Corfu today which is the start of the Greek Islands.
It was beautiful. Corfu is the number 1 destination for the rich and famous.
Had a tour of Corfu town and of course did some shopping. Than it was time for
Masterchef as it was off to a restaurant for our ...
... quite see the latest ship through the trees but as it sailed out with an air of sophistication we recognised the dark blue hulk with red trim. Focusing the binoculars we could now see that it was Cunard's Queen Elizabeth it sailed by so serenely.
Our last night there was a beautiful full moon shimmering on the bay, a perfect end to our holiday.
It's now the morning, we check out at 12.00 and our pick up for the airport is 12.20 so just time for me to close my blog for another ...
... SUPER-behaved since then! We had our first back anchor mooring, and I was on the wheel. I think I did well, but some people say I hit the beach a little too hard! *shrug* We stopped at a secluded beach and all got in the water with our floating toys. They offered jetskis, wake boarding, tubes and parasailing. It was FANTASTIC!! We then got back onto the boats and headed out for Corfu. Maria took the wheel for some photo ...
Today's port is Kerkira in Corfu which is the second largest of the Greek islands in the Ionian Sea. The ship docked about 2.5 kilometres from the old town so we hopped into a taxi as it was a bit hot to walk the distance. It is a beautiful town with narrow streets and alleyways and lots of shops - especially clothes shops - which gave The Management plenty of places to visit. Of course, she found some clothes to buy while AJG sat outside and people-watched ...
... one direction you could see Greece mainland, another Albania and in the distance Italy. All around the island was the beautiful blue water, such a lovely view. We then hung around in Corfu walking the shopping streets. For dinner a Greek feast, all our favourites souvlaki, dolmade, moussaka, olives, sun dried tomatoes and of course the most amazing baklava either of us has ever tasted. Little sick from over eating, but it was soooo good, just one more piece of baklava, it's only wafer ...

We loved the Coral hotel
My Wife and I have been making the Coral hotel in Roda our favourite holiday hotel in Greece. We make the Coral hotel our regular hotel in all these years we have never had any cause to complain, in fact we have booked again for June 2005. the management and staff I would say are exceptional. the location is spot on, I may add we are both elderly not yet on zimma frames tho.
if you are considering going to Corfu the Coral hotel is the one but book early have a great holiday.
Me and my wifearehad a brillant holiday at the Corla hotel in Corfu!!!! We had the best most relaxing holiday ever.
We have fantastic time in this Hotel!!!
The setting is wonderful with stunning views, in a great location in front of the beach. The service is also perfect - amazingly friendly and helpful staff. The Hotel is Excellent in all respects. Rooms / Food / Service were sublime, weather fantastic. Within minutes of arriving we were relaxed and made to feel so welcome, all the staff were wonderful. Dimitris was always on hand and nothing was too much trouble. Super bar with great cocktails and excellent pool facilities! We'll return! Thanks Travelocity for offering us this hotel!
It was great
We have visited Coral Hotel for our holiday's and we had a great time. The hotel was great with a friendly atmosphere and direct infron of the sea. We was having breakfast by the sea every day and that made the whole day. One of the best choices in the island. Thanks Kostas for the hospitality. We will be back.
Very friendly family hotel
This is a very friendly hotel. The manager was there to meet us and someone took our luggage to our room. It was the early hours of the morning and we needed milk for our little girl who was 2. No problem, they took a carton from the kitchen fridge. Now that's service!! We ate in the hotel restaurant every night and the food was excellent. At night time we never managed to venture away from the hotel complex as the entertainment was fantastic. We totally recommend it to all families.
We have just returned home from a brilliant holiday, so we thought that we had to tell everybody about it!
I went to Coral Hotel and stayed there it was fantastic every one was so friendly and its so quiet and lively at the same and it is right next to the sea it's fantastic and i will look forward to going there next year !
Simply the best
One of the best choice for a relaxing holiday in a family enviroment. Check Dimitri, Nikos, Efi. Great time.Thanks Kostas
