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:

There must be easier ways of finding them!
