Yia Sas, friends!
I’m back after a beautiful week on the Greek isle of Corfu.
My journey started in Cincinnati….and from there went to Boston, then London and then into Athens. My friends and I
loathed enjoyed a six-hour layover in the nearly empty Athens airport. Nothing to do but kick up our heels and discuss which male teen actor made the most movies in the ’80s. Of course.
(Charlie Sheen was declared King of the ’80s with 19 movies, while Kevin Bacon came in a close second with 17. Thanks IMDB and hours to kill!)
Before the debate over Footloose vs Platoon got any more heated, we found an open cafe in the airport to enjoy an early breakfast.
Before we knew it, they were calling our flight to Corfu. A puddle jumper ride from Athens to Corfu later….
….and one death-defying van ride through the hills of Corfu and we arrived at our destination, The Delfino Blu Resort.
Our hotel was absolutely beautiful; and the staff were so welcoming and kind. We had arrived a bit early, so while they finalized our rooms, we were ushered out to the deck to rest and enjoy some snacks and drinks.
The Greek generosity continued with a welcome letter from the owner along with complimentary wine, fruit and soft drinks in the minifridge.
After unpacking for a bit, we met up with the rest of our friends. We pulled on swimmysuits and headed for the pool to enjoy an adult beverage or two….
We sipped our drinks and caught up poolside for the rest of the afternoon….
Stay tuned for more recaps!
