    Near Gouvia Marina north of Corfu town

    June 27, 2018 in Greece ⋅ 🌧 20 °C

    We have almost officially arrived in Greece, it’s worse then Tunisia, but that’s mostly because all the parties are not in the same place. We had to visit port authority in a Gouvia then go the port police and customs in Corfu town and then back to port authority. The process is very labour intensive so keeps lots of people employed, a computerised system would involve only one person instead of the four we have seen! But at least it gave us an excuse to wander around Corfu town which was, to use an American quote (they are a few of them around, probably off the cruise ships), very quaint with lots of winding little streets a fair few of which turn out to be dead ends. The church’s are less ornate but there are still lots of them. I have included photo of John to prove he is still alive after I got a little upset about his forgetting that we didn’t have electronic charts for anywhere east of the foot of Italy! This should be sorted tomorrow when we collect the new SD card for the plotter.Read more
