Corfu, Greece: Another Chapter in the Development of Tourism

Corfu Press, on the Miramare Hotel, Moraitika - Τι συμβαίνει με το Μιραμάρε;

The Emir of Qatar (His Highness Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, Emir of the State of Qatar) seems to be facing some problems. He's probably muttering under his breath, "If I'd only known..."

This is a sorry saga and ongoing case study that I would have liked to have been able to cover in my chapter on the history of tourism in Corfu, chapter 16 in "Travel, Tourism and Identity".

"Travel, Tourism, and Identity addresses the psychological and social adjustments that occur when people make contact with others outside their social, cultural, or linguistic groups. Whether such contact is the result of tourism, seeking exile, or relocating abroad, the volume’s contributors demonstrate how one’s identity, cultural assumptions, and worldview can be brought into question".
