well i have entitled this as day 1 but its the day Dave arrived, and as most of you are aware, he starts the walk tomorrow.
He texted me and rang me today to say that he arrived safely, about 11am greek time and 9am UK time, to the weather you would expect from there, hot and sunny. As its one of only a very few days he has to himself, he explored Corfu Town and took in the sights, with the odd taverna involved as you would expect from 'our Dave'! he went to see where Prince Phillip was born at Mon Repos and the roman ruins at palaiopoulos and round to Garitsa to the town, anyone jealous yet? I am!
A few beers later (his words) and a meal and i expect its an early night, before the shrek trek.
He will be in contact each day with me to update his progress, whether it be by text or ringing me, and that includes his 'rest days' of which i believe there are 4 over the 2 weeks, so there will be blogs on those days too, as I said previously, any questions or comments are very welcome, and will be answered as best as i can
