Corfu tonight that we’ve just watched and again as last week’s episode it was generally very disappointing. Not enough content, nothing on the tourist resorts at all. I know it’s hard to squeeze a lot into a 30 minute slot but tonight’s episode was in a word “ crap” !!!!

Well have got to agree, an awful lot of of uninteresting subject content  and valuable time to show off the island lost. Just re-watched it on the very irritating ITV hub with the adverts you cannot get away from and if you try to, another tab opens. Just to remind me in case i missed anything whilst blinking. Unfortunately I didn't.

Will keep watching the series "just in case" it improves :-X

I've used Medical Travel Compared for a couple of years now. They've consistently found very reasonably priced cover. Cheaper than I'd imagined to be honest. Hope that's of help

Cheers.          Tom and Rose

Hi Mari, yes I can cook tasty Greek food. My Dad, when he was at home took over the cooking so we were brought up to prepare, cook and eat whatever was put in front of us Our traditional Sunday dinner , for example, was spaghetti cooked in the oven with lamb cooked separately and a Greek salad ( no pudding or dessert ). There was not much opportunity back then to buy the necessary ingredients ( not like today ) so we always went to this little old fashioned shop near the docks where they would sell all manner of ingredients in hessian sacks, weighed out and placed ever so carefully in brown paper bags. Also my Grandmother would send delicacies over, like dried octopus. Needless to say, I avoided inviting friends over when these packages arrived. ;D ;D ;D

Alykanas, just the once, arriving early June for two weeks of bliss. We never tire of this place and are so pleased the issues with the demise of Thomas Cook have, for some accommodations been resolved with Tui taking over. People ask us why we keep going back to the same place every year. Doh...we enjoy it !!! It's like having a holiday home there only no need to face bills, maintainance issues, gardening, cleaning etc , just unpack and relax. :)

Well other half wanted to explore other places but since went to Crete he's realised nothing beats Zante  :laugh:

Interesting....I, too, am half Greek, like Julia. My dad was born in Pireaus, Athens and he met my Mum ( her dad was Swedish and mother English ) as he was in the Greek navy and the ship docked in Cardiff where she was living. She tells me he could only say "Yes" and "No" in Englishwhen they met, so how they managed to communicate I will never know.

Wow half Greek can you cook like a Greek though ??

You will have a great time wherever you roam, I'm sure . Please try Alykes though as it's so close to Alykanas and a lovely resort to wander through. There is a campsite at the very far end to wander through as the different holiday mobile homes there are a treat. The beach here too is brilliant and a great selection of bars and tavernas.


Never walked through campsite although stayed at seaview once. Love alykes beach especially buca bar. Do like palm tree for rose wine but a man last year was in an act when I went to the toilet and it made me never want to use their loos again  :'(
