On our way...

We're sitting in a plane in an airport at a place called Araxos waiting for new passengers to board so we can continue on our way to Corfu. The plane is still pretty full of families with lots of kids, couples and randomly assorted people in age and sex on their way for a vacation. The flight was well over an hour late leaving from Warsaw which seems to cause a chain reaction of delays. I'm on vacation. I don't care. I've got a good book to read and a journal to write in... :-)
We finally made it to the airport in Cofru and quickly got our suitcases. The airport is kind of shabby, run down and in need of some maintenance - none of the urinals worked in the men's room and it was pretty stinky.
We got our suitcases, found a bus to the hotel and got on our way. It took over an hour to get to the hotel - the last stop on the route. The scenery along the way reminds me a lot of parts of Spain with beautiful views of the sea, olive and cypress trees, some pines - narrow roads and somewhat chaotic driving. I enjoyed the ride.
Check in at the Sunshine hotel was ok... I was surprised that no-one in reception (at that moment) spoke English. It was either German or Greek, so we managed with German.
