Port of Call: Corfu Part 5

Once we got back to the port, we figured we had another hour or so before we sail. The schedule indicated that the boat would be in Corfu from 8 – 3:30 and we definitely did not disembark at 8 am. We had very limited time in Corfu. It is this time restriction that sours most travelers into cruising, but for us, it’s what we like. Corfu for instance would not require more than an overnight stay in my estimation. That is my assessment of its charms as it appeals to me.

Anyway, here are my impressions of Corfu:

· Friendly people

· Lots of vegetation

· Bustling Old Town

· Lovely waters

· Incredible views

· Adorable cats

Immediately after freshening up, we hightailed it to the deck to get a good last glimpse of the beautiful island of Corfu. We were in Corfu October 20, 2014.

It seemed as if all of a sudden Corfu was no longer in sight. Time to set my sights on to the next port of call.
