Corfu Travel Diary: Day One

Oh, Corfu, I think I’ve fallen in love with you.

*that accidentally rhymes*

The Mr and I booked our trip to the gorgeous Greek Island at the beginning of July and ever since, I was looking forward to it.

Greece has always been on my to-see list and I’m so glad that we started with Corfu.
