Travel Blogs from Corfu Town
Today was out last day in Corfu :( Luckily the weather was amazing, blue skies and no clouds. We got out of the apartment early and drove to Kassiopi. Here we wandered around the harbour and looked at the Castle on the hill. My parents went to meet somebody about the house, so I sat in a cafe savouring my last Espresso Freddo.

In better weather conditions they also take the mummified remains of St. Spiridon around the town. Today it was ...
... had 2 meals and a nights sleep. We got off the ferry at 6:30 am to get on another ferry. After waiting for the other ferry to get there we got on and got off in CORFU! Then there was a 30 minute bus ride to our hostel: THE PINK PALACE!
