We are returning to Corfu for the first time since 1995 for a few days in October. One of the largest of the Ionian islands and with links going back to earliest Greek mythology - it contains some beautiful and stunning coastal scenery in the north of the island and is associated with the writer Lawrence Durrell and the naturalist Gerald Durrell who lived there during a period in the 1930s. We're going very much outside the tourist season and hope to be able to get to some places well off the beaten track. Greece is suffering economic difficulties at the current time and we do feel fortunate to have the opportunity to travel at a time when so many Greeks will not be finding it so easy to do the same. As always, the best way to travel is with an open mind and hopefully I'll come back refreshed for the challenges ahead in 2014.
