I was lucky I got the opportunity to travel to some European countries when I had my assignment in Lausanne. Coming from a very homy family, in the beginning I was nervous in doing solo traveling. It took just one trip to prove my concern was unreasonable 🙂
After several trips, I realized that I had my own preference on my trip destination. For example, I’d rather go to places with beautiful nature than big city with fancy shops. In more specific way, it referred more to coastal area rather than mountains. I guess in a way you are knowing yourself better by traveling to different places with different characteristics.
One of my favorite places which I have visited is Santorini, Greece. In the beginning I was curious when I saw pictures of this beautiful island in internet. The moment I arrived there, I completely fell in love with the island. Magnificent view, good food, friendly people… Nothing really to complaint! Hopefully I can go there again some time in the near future! 🙂
When we speak about visiting Greece, we often refer to the famous islands of Santorini and Mykonos. Most of people went there because the magnificent views posted everywhere in the internet. That’s why when I heard that I will go to Corfu island at Greece with Ben and his family, I remembered I raised my eyebrows as I never heard about the island.
Corfu is apparently one of the most visited islands in Greece. It is named as the greenest island in Greece. The island is located a bit far behind Athens and the other famous islands such as Santorini or Mykonos, so you might need to take a look carefully on the map when you’re searching for it.
In actual, the place I visited was not in the centre of Corfu. Located 40km away from Corfu, Lefkimmi was a nice little village with beautiful houses and incredible beaches around. We spent whole days in the Bouka beach as it was perfect beach for Ben’s children with its shallow beginning.
Of course the trip would not be complete without visiting the Corfu city.
Surprisingly, it was a nice European city with stunning aisles and stores around. It somehow reminded me on cities in Italy, but with different building’s type. Though we only had a short time there, I surely was impressed and would not mind to come visiting the island again in the future.
I put some pictures of Bouka beach just to give you a glimpse what I have enjoyed during my holiday 😛
