Corfu [Day Two]

Today I woke up at 0830, had eggs on toast and half a chocolate croissant for breakfast and took to the road.

We walked to the bus stop (approx. 5 minutes from here) and waited for over half an hour; no buses. Eventually, we got fed up and hitched a lift with a local to the airport where we tried and failed to hire a car (I’m 21, and their insurances only cover >23).

We asked a local coach driver where we could hire a quad bike, he told us the port. We asked for directions and set off. He then picked us up 5 minutes later, as he was actually driving there and had forgotten at the time that we asked. We tried and failed again to hire a car – I’m quite tenacious. Finally, just as we were about to give up, a kind lady hired us a car for €140 for four days, with €1000 excess if it’s damaged.

Driving on the wrong side of the car, on the wrong side of the road, in the wrong direction was a daunting experience and I got quite stressed as I had no idea where I was going. I also don’t like the fact that petrol is pumped for you – I like to do things my self.

Tonight’s plans are to visit local beaches near Pelekas and watch the sunset.
