Day 5 Corfu


Continued from Day 4 Athens – Corfu

BusAbout Classic Balkan Trek – Day 5 of 9

Today is our free day.  Knowing me, I don’t know what to do so I tagged along with Megan and did some shopping.  Corfu is a very photogenic destination.  There’s lots of shop selling limoncello, dresses (lots of white ones), jewellery (especially silver), wooden items and souvenir.

For some reason I felt like spending a bit of money and bought:

  • 2 limoncello (although I can’t stand to drink it, it makes a good gift!)
  • matching greek design silver earrings and a ring
  • real turquoise earrings
  • and a swarovski teddy necklace (couldn’t resist..)

If only someone could smack my hands right now.. naughty!

Lunch Time

Greek food is awesome! We sat near a bunch of seniors who came via a cruise ship.  We had a bit of a chat with them and they were a lovely active bunch of oldies.. I thought to myself.. One day I want to be old and happy like them!!  I’d love to try a cruise tour!!  Need money first… doh!

Wish I was swimming.. stupid time of the month..

Dinner Time

Not far from our resort there’s a quiet restaurant.  The owners there are really laid back and we had a jolly good time!  In Greece, you’ll find they drink Ouzo.  It’s kinda like Vodka but not really and I really hate it.. it’s disgusting.. (I’m not a drinker).

Greek spirit – Ouzo! Bottoms up! *yuck*

I love a good surprise and had no idea what I’ve just ordered.  all I asked was for something traditional.  Looks like dog food and rice.  I remember the taste being bland and I didn’t enjoy it.. 😦

Do you want to eat this?

After dinner, the owner played some awesome greek music and we danced and drank all night to it!  And then we played some pool.  It was super fun!
