Greece: The Lure of the Ionian Islands and Epirus in Springtime; The Call of Corfu



Epirus in May, from The Ionian Islands and Epirus, A Cultural History, Chapter 3, The Call of the Islands 

I particularly like the passage by The Rev. T. S. Hughes (May, 1815), from Travels in Greece and Albania, 1830.

Thomas Smart Hughes, Vol 2, page 429


Two photographs by Frédéric Boissonnas, Corfu and Paramythia:

Eighty years later - still diving for cherries?
There must be easier ways of finding them!
