Impressions of Corfu #2

I hope you enjoyed the first part of our exploration of part of the island. Today we continue with the second day of our trip through Corfu. We drove towards the northern mountainous region and started with the highest elevation on the island, Pantokrator (906 m/2972 ft). The view and silence up there were breathtaking. The nerve-wracking drive on the extremely narrow and winding mountain road and the narrow streets through the small villages were forgotten for a moment. On the highest point there was a small church in the middle of a picturesque garden. It seemed like an oasis in the midst of all those rocks and sand.

After that, we went to the village of Sidari. It is located on the north coast, which is characterized by its cliffs. We visited the so-called Canal d’Amour:

Although not that far away, it took us another 30 minutes to get to Cape Drastis. Again, it was a thrill to get there. But you are rewarded with a spectacular view of the cliffs that drop more than 50 m (164 ft) here. You know I’m afraid of heights – I was very brave!

The next stop took us to Angelokastro, another stunning viewpoint. (Again… how can two cars pass each other on such narrow roads?) I continuously thanked my son and admired him for driving and even having fun. You can get an idea of what I’m talking about in one of the following photos.

Two of the last photos who three little coves. Our next stop took us down to the village of Paleokastritsa for a very late lunch and for some snorkeling.

I hope you liked the little tour. Of course, there is much more to see and I hope to be back one day to see more of this charming place.

In Love and Light

Erika Kind, Vacation


I haven’t been to Milos, Naxos, and Santorini yet, Santorini is on top of my Greece list. I have been to Rhode and Kos too. My parents drove us around the Peloponnese with a mobile home, two times for two weeks. I could not stand that mobile home but the places (like Delphy, Olympia, Athens …) were great to see.

But it seems it did not break your joy of traveling… lol. Sounds like really cool vacations. It always depends on the group that is mixed together which makes the difference.

Erika, one of our favorite British series was “The Durrells in Corfu.” This series is based on a true story. The scenery and charm were terrific. I am so glad you got to experience this. Keith

Thank you so much. I was so looking forward to that week my expectations were even topped. I enjoyed most that everything felt so “original” which manes it easy to detach, rejuvenate, and treasure the moment and the place 😊
