A Week in Corfu, Greece

I just want to close my eyes and magically be transported back to the poolside where I could read my book in peace and tan to my heart's content. Alas, my holiday has come to an end and I'm freezing my tits off back in good ol' Blighty whilst trying to deal with all the delightful things reality likes to throw at you to remind you that no one can just sail through life without a little wave hurling them in a different direction. Paleokastritsa was beautifully serene which in turn created a safe haven for me to just forget about my own identity for a while. There was no sense of urgency or schedule and I love having that flexibility in my life. Luke and I have decided we'd like to live out our days on a yacht - now we just need to become millionaires in order to feed this desire. Oh, such is life! 









every bar has a pool! this was one of the stunning views | ate a whole load of bread and olive oil! | myself | gorgeous flowers | beautiful buildings in the old town | souvlaki | chilling on the beach | lazing on the beach | trance-like reading | BBQ'd chicken | poolside | beautiful Vespa | Luke being hardcore | learning traditional Greek dancing (in my seashell dress) | Sofrito - yum! 

If you'd like to scroll through all of my adventures then you can do so.

  24. What lovely photos - sounds like you had a perfect time. That's what I love most about being on holiday (and what I crave what I'm home) - that feeling of not having to check your watch or worrying that there's somewhere you have to be. I quite liked having a break from the internet too (though I was straight back on it when I was home!) I absolutely adore that first photo, it looks so idyllic, wish I was there! You look flippin gorgeous in those snaps of you too!
