Corfiotes deep in conversation, Corfu Town

Good conversation, good competition
I love street scenes like these. It does sound like you know too much about your neighbors. A lovely part of the world.

Izzy
Thrilled that Izzy didn't have to come looking for you off some edge cliff. Sounded like an adventure. That would have been very funny if that lady had jumped in your car. I'll bet her husband had a good laugh.

Corfiotes
The Greek word for citizen is idiotis from which we get the word idiot. I wonder if there was a Greek town named Id where everyone was an idiot. When driving and I encounter a bad driver I call them idiotis.

Idiotis

Corfu
One of the islands we did not make it to and hope to get there sooner than later. Love your story of the walkie talkies bursting to life and thank goodness. What a mess that would have been. The Greek Gods are looking out for you. You'll need an extra drink on the balcony after that rental car mess.

Another addition to my bucket list!
Crete was never on my travel radar before but after reading your blogs on it, I've just made another addition to my travel wish list! Really enjoy your blogs and photos!

Crete
Thanks for your kind words. Much appreciated. We've loved it here in Crete. Elafonissi Beach and our gorge hike were probably the highlights, and eating in the gorgeous old town every night was always good.

Chania Old Town

Sheep theory
Many a time we have stepped off the beaten path and seen hordes following a flag going "Baa, Baa." We follow "the locals know best" when it comes to restaurants. Some of our best meals have been in peasant restaurants where taste and atmosphere more than compensate for lack of fine decor. Denise and I still talk of the best Peking Duck ever in the Crowne Plaza in Wanfujing and the best chicken & Scotch eggs in a dirt alley in Mali. I guess our eating habits while travelling are pot luck...following the locals and avoiding as best we can saying "Baa, Baa." Thanks for a fun blog.

Petra
Many thanks for your kind words. Much appreciated. Petra was indeed fascinating. A lot of walking though, and I started to doubt the sanity of us going at the height summer a few times!!
