Our last stop on this magnificent journey was Corfu, Greece. The setting for Shakespeare's The Tempest, this emerald Greek Island was a delight to take in. Easy walk on and off the ship created a simple and delightful situation for our stroll around the old town. Gorgeous architecture, delicate flower boxes adorning cast iron balconies, vendors selling their apricot flavored liquor, soaps made of olive oil and beautiful linens made for a nice shopping stop. Bargaining made it even nicer! This little taste of the old town was enough to make me begin dreaming of our longer vacation on this island sometime in the near future. The highlight was the park side cafe we found with comfortable chairs and leather sofa from which we were able to enjoy our ice cold Mythos and salty snacks. A perfect last stop on a journey filled with amazing stops.
