Vacationing while long term traveling is a must. It’s tiring stuff! Constantly planning, researching, plane trips, long bus rides, and ALL THE WALKING! After a busy 2 weeks in Italy we were ready for a couple days of island relaxation on one of the lesser known Greek Islands, Corfu.
We also needed this relaxation time because we had decided to climb Mount Olympus…less than a week before we actually climbed it. Smart! *insert eery foreshadowing music here* For 3 days we stayed at the Pink Palace, famous for it’s fun parties, beachy goodness, and it’s pink exterior.

We spent 3 days lounging on the beach
Yes, Greeks eat potatoes (french fries) in their gyros!
We even went on the Pink Palace’s famous booze cruise…not too many pictures from that craziness! You’ll have to visit and see for yourself.
It was the perfect relaxing 3 days before a jam packed week of Greece sightseeing including exploring the Greek Orthodox monasteries of Meteora and a grueling 2 day hike up Mount Olympus. Stay tuned…
