    Korfu

    September 24 in Greece ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

    Unser erster Stopp führte uns nach Griechenland, genauer auf die Insel Korfu.
    Am Vormittag besuchten wir Korfu Stadt mit seinen kleinen, verwinkelten Gassen und den beiden beeindruckenden Festungen.
    Nach einem kleinen Mittagssnack ging es dann durch die bergige Landschaft mit ihren Zypressen und den weitläufigen Olivenhainen zum bekannten Ort Paleokastritsa.
    Im Anschluss machten wir uns auf den Weg zum Achilleion, der Sommerresidenz von Kaiserin Sissi.
    Ein wunderschönes Fleckchen Erde...

    Corfu town

    May 13 in Greece ⋅ 🌧 12 °C

    After a blowy night and with a very damp forecast for the day ahead we headed by bus to Corfu town to be proper tourists for the day see the sights we missed last year. The old fort was impressive, some of the Venetian buildings as well as the British ones were still standing some had been restored. The fisherman’s shacks lining the moat walk were brilliant and we enjoyed walking through the fort to visit Mandraki Marina. The view of old Corfu Town from the lighthouse at the top of the Fort took our breathe away mostly coz it was so windy but also pretty impressive. The church was a lot less sparkling than the average Greek church but so was the day, from about noon it has been raining but we are snug in a cafe with our first English paper since Dad bought one over in February. Had lovely lunch at Bellisimo restaurant in Corfu town. We stopped off at Lidl’s on the way back and bought a case so can start packing a few presents for when we come home. Who wants Ouzo?Read more

    Shopping

    May 18, 2017 in Greece ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    Am Nachmittag sind wir nach Korfu Stadt gefahren.

    Dabei haben wir einen Halt bei meinem Lieblings Einkaufcenter gemacht. Dem Lidl.

    Bei Marks@Spencer schauten wir ob wir was für die kleine Hexe finden. Ja, wir sind fündig geworden. Sonst gab es leider nix gescheites.

    Anschließend sind wir in einem kleinen Süßwarenladen, wo es glutenfreie Backwaren gibt. Dort waren wir bereits letzte Woche und es war sehr lecker. Die Sachen sind zwar nicht billig aber so lecker. Wir haben heute Haselnuss- und Pistazienkrokant, Kokosbällchen und Pflaumen-, Aprikosen-, Feigen- und Dattelbällchen mitgenommen.Read more

    Corfu: The City

    November 13, 2013 in Greece ⋅ ⛅ 64 °F

    The island of Corfu (Kerkyra) is a wonderland. It has been domanated by Venetian, Austro-Hungarian and English rulers. The result is a wonderfully cosmopolitan island that bears the stamp of the whole of Europe. Technically Greek now, we saw the house in which Prince Phillip, Duke of Edinburgh, was born. The buildings look Venetian. Every language, including English and French, are widely spoken here. The food is wonderful. The ambience is intoxicating. Corfu has become one of our favorite places in the world to visit.Read more

    Corfu

    November 6, 2016 in Greece ⋅ ⛅ 68 °F

    We didn't know if anything would be open on a Sunday, but, thanks to Saint Spyridon, Corfu was full of life today. On the first Sunday in November, the people of Corfu commemorate that one time when everyone was getting cholera and Saint Spyridon chased it away. There are processions throughout the middle of the day, and the shops that would have been closed had all opened for the occasion.

    We did a little shopping, watched some of the processions, and Google maps helped us find an excellent cafe for lunch. Eating souvlaki at an outdoor cafe in Greece, then heading across the street to buy baklava from a little bakery recommended by a local a couple tables away--there's another item to cross off my bucket list.

    Stadtrundfahrt

    May 8, 2018 in Greece ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    Das mit dem Bus jedenfalls klappt super. Die Stadtrundfahrt führt uns am Meer entlang und an der alten Festung vorbei, die wir uns damals schon angesehen haben. Zurück am Kreuzfahrtterminal gehen wir noch ein bisschen shoppen und dann beenden wir auch schon unseren Ausflugstag auf Korfu mit einem Kaffee auf unserem Balkon.Read more

    Korfu-Stadt

    October 15, 2009 in Greece ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    Nachdem wir unseren wackeren Hyundai für 3 Tage gemietet haben, schließt sich gleich der nächste Ausflug an, nach Korfu-Stadt. Vom Hafen aus erklimmen wir zuerst einmal die Festung, ausgebaut von den Venezianern und den Briten, geschleift von den Griechen.
