Corfu

 

Earlier last month, we spent an extended bank holiday weekend in Corfu an Island in the Ionian Sea off the coast of Greece. As the weather warms up here in London I find myself thinking back to the beautiful Corfu coastline, the stillness of the sea, the fragrance of the lemons, the warmth of the people and the food...oh the food.

We were lucky enough to be there over the Greek Orthodox Easter and perhaps the most memorable experience was when we went up to the local church on Good Friday and joined in on a candlelit procession with the entire vlllage through the darkened streets behind the icon, the priest and the choir.
Walking amongst the locals so far from home, the only light coming from our candles and the fireflies, illuminating the olive trees and donkeys in the fields was without a doubt one of the most magical moments I've experienced.
