The rest of the flight to Kerkira (Corfu) was uneventful, somewhat hazy (so not many good photo opportunities) with some interesting cloud formations that meant that we needed to keep changing height to maintain visual
On our first radio contact with Kerkira we were able to confirm that we could stay overnight. The welcome we received from the Olympic Handling reps, Kate and Mike, was first-class. Our journey is even going to be reported in their Local Airport Newsletter. Kate also went to the trouble to find a room in a local Hotel. As the Hotel has WIFI, this has been the first real opportunity to check emails; we have been staggered to find so many good-will messages from home, the US and even Australia.
A fine meal, a cold beer and fireworks on the seafront overlooking the Ionian Sea helped us to relax after a somewhat (man-made!) hectic day.
