[Greece] The Island of Corfu

In Greek, Corfu Island is called Kerkyra.
It is located at the Northwest of Greece, while Mykonos and Santorini are at the Southeast.
Because it is so close to the heel of Italy, you could see much Italian influences on the Island.

There are many English, Russian and Italian tourists.
For once, I could count the amount of Asian tourists I saw on this trip with my 10 fingers.

The direct flight from London to Corfu is approximately two hours and 50 minutes.
I departed from Gatwick with my medium-sized backpack for a three-day and three-night trip.
Thanks to it being the summer, I managed to fit four outfits, two bikinis and all my toiletries in that backpack!
Truly travelling light!

[Greece] Foods of Corfu

Once again, I have skipped my June holiday blog and came straight to writing about Corfu.

First thing's first, I have to write about the food!

When I go on beach holidays, I usually don't gain weight because of all the walking and (some) swimming.

The first morning, we had breakfast in this beautiful hotel restaurant that cannot look any more like a painting!

Up the O2!

The O2 is an arena in London, pretty much similar to Vancouver's Roger's Arena.
One of the major differences is that you cannot climb the Roger's, but you can definitely climb the O2!
So on a gloomy (and almost rainy) day when the tube strike is on, I've decided to climb it!
(The weather and tube strike really are just coincidences...)
