An Island Getaway to Corfu, Greece

Hello, everyone! Today’s post is a little late, as I have been so busy traveling and preparing for Christmas! Before I begin sharing all of my holiday-themed posts, I wanted to write about my week in Corfu. If you follow me on Instagram or frequently read my blog, you might remember that in October, Nicolas and I traveled to the beautiful island of Corfu with his family. I have already written a post about my favorite Greek foods which you can find here. πŸ™‚

Corfu is an island off the coast of Greece and is surrounded by the Ionian Sea. The scenery is breathtaking, as there are both mountains and beaches. We drove all the way up to the highest point on the island and looked down below at the beautiful coastline. It was an amazing experience!

Corfu Town is the capital of this little island, and it is so charming! A popular tourist attraction is The Old Fortress (pictured below) which was built many, many years ago to protect the city from sea invasions! We climbed what seemed to be a million stairs to reach the top, but the view was totally worth it.

Corfu Town is extremely special because it was occupied by several different countries before being united with Greece in the late 1800’s. This makes the architecture and layout of the city extremely unique!

Even though it was mid-October, the weather was lovely. The sun shined every single day, but the temperature was never higher than 80 degrees, which I loved because I don’t do well in high temperatures. πŸ™‚ Β The water was a little chilly, but I still snorkeled! Nicolas’s dad even rented a boat, and we sailed around the island. It was all so fun!

Hope you enjoyed today’s travel post! I still have lots to share from my trip to Bergamo and Milan, but those will be up after Christmas. Stay tuned for my 12 Days of Christmas, which I will be starting on December 13th! πŸ™‚

Madison
