Greece 2009

Our second sailing trip to Greece, this time we had four glorious weeks followed by a few short days in Southern England. We started out by flying into Corfu and spent a few days around the island before heading across to the mainland, then back to Paxos and Antipaxos before moving down into the Inland Sea where we spent the remainder of our time traveling through Lefkas, Kephalonia, Zakynthos, Ithaka and Meganisi. We had a fabulous time, although it was not what we expected.
