Still feeling sick, Corfu, Greece was a similarly short experience for us.  It’s the only Greek port in which we haven’t rented Quad bikes or a moped, and that’s simply because it’s not that kind of place.  Unlike Mykonos and Santorini it’s not built on cliffs or large hills and unlike Katakolon, Ancient Olympia doesn’t rest just miles from Corfu.  It’s a city with a fort.  Restaurants and shops are abundant and the weather and water are beautiful but Corfu is not that picturesque postcard you get from Greece.  There are no mysterious white and blue iconic buildings resting along the shorelines or cliff edges.  The people are nice and the island is easily navigable but that for that epic, stereotypical Greek vacation, you’ll probably wanna go somewhere else.
