The Croatian Island of Korčula

We knew very little about our next port of call on our Mediterranean Cruise. In fact I’d never heard of the Croatian Island of Korčula. Probably because the Croatian islands of Viz and Hvar are more well known and popular with the sailing boats that cruise around the Adriatic Sea off the coastline of Croatia. All…

Corfu – A Greek Island

My husband always told me he would take me to the Greek Islands one day, so he came good on his promise when we sailed into the port of Kerkyra or Corfu. The Greek Islands have always conjured up images of white-washed walled and blue roofed buildings, set high into steep cliff faces and overlooking…
