Our world tour, into this travel blog, it couldn’t start in a better way than this one ! The Amazing Corfu and it’s beautiful sightseeing, is the place I born and I still live here. I present an 8 minute video with the best sightseeing of my island Corfu, including the islands of Paxos & Antipaxos.
This video was made by myself, using my own equipment, drone, camera etc, and it took 3 years to complete it. Moreover, you can watch on it how Corfu citizens celebrate the Easter. A litany of Saint Spyridonas, the event of “Botides” that takes place on the first resurrection in the morning of the Holy Saturday and the firecrackers after the resurrection in Spianada square !
Enjoy this video and maybe you can decide to visit both Corfu & Paxos soon !
With all that fear, it’s much easier to stay at home in our comfort
zones than to break out and travel.
