Today we toured a good portion of the island of Corfu. We began with a tour of Elizabeth’s summer palace. South of Old town Corfu.
Afterwards we headed to the other side of the island to visit an old monestary on a hill. Some of us hiked up to see the monastery. Others stayed behind to enjoy the beach. I hiked up to the monestary. On the way back down I encountered goats. They started to head for me so I quickly took their picture and ran! Once I got away, I found a beautiful spot with a beautiful view and I spread some of Chris’s ashes there.
After the monastery we headed back to Old Town Corfu to the Castle. We toured the grounds and then were given the rest of the day in our own. I decided to hike up to the top of the Castle. It was a strenuous hike but worth it in the end, the views were amazing!
After two uphill hikes I went to my hotel room to rest a bit and shower. Then I headed into town and explored a bit. I went to another side of the island. I came across more beautiful views and buildings.
I didn’t really eat lunch so I was starving by 7, so I headed to a restaurant that I read was excellent. It was called Pomo D’Oro. I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves.
Tomorrow we head back to mainland Greece and continue heading east.
