The Serbian mansion in Corfu
The Serbian mansion in Corfu is located at the center of the city, in 19, Moustoxidou street and houses the Museum "Serbs on Corfu 1916-1918" and the Honorary Consulate of Serbia and Montenegro. Col. (ret.) Milorad Prelevic was the curator of the museum's permanent exhibition. The exhibition is organized in 10 separate topics, which chronologically illustrate the historical period from 1915 until the end of the First World War through photos, maps, documents and objects.
At the end of 1915 and the beginning of 1916, under the pressure of the joint offensive of the Austro-Hungarian, German and Bulgarian troops, the Serbian army, Serbian government, National Assembly, as well as a part of the Serbian civilian population, was forced to withdraw from Serbia through Montenegro to Albania. On this long journey, Serbs went through the biggest exodus in their recent history. In his official report to Serbian Prime Minister Nikola Pasic, General Bozidar Terzic, Minister of Defense, wrote that on their way through Albania, 243,877 persons was killed or taken as prisoners or died from hunger or cold weather. The approximate total number of casualties was at least 150,000 including both soldiers and civilians. - (Read "THE ARRIVAL IN CORFU" by Carlo Sforza)Related to:

Although I just booked in at the first available resort (Sidhari) it was a good place to explore from. If you have the confidence and on your own, you could hire a scooter to get you around but a motor car or jeep would be the prefered and safer option. For me the scooter was nostalgic and cheap.
The best sunset in Corfù
The best sunset of Corfù can be seen in Peroulades, a nice and wild beach close to Sidari.
You can admire it from the beach or from the restaurant upon the cliff.
The beach itself is great, with its white cliffs similar to the ones in Dover. However, the seawater is not so nice maybe because of the sand that is brown and because of the waves.
However the sunset is a great show!!Related to:
Strolling around the Kontokali area in the early morning, in search of the "Dafodill Yellow Villa" where the Durrell's family lived, I came across a little farm where they had these beautiful deers. I don't know if they had them for a zoo or so, but I found it quite interesting, deers in a farm in Greece...Related to:

See the entire island in a day
I rented a scooter with a group of other travellers. It cost $16 for the day, and fuel was spare change in my pocket.
The island is only 100km long, so we rode around the whole island, stopping at markets, beaches, mountain tops...or anything else we saw of inerest.Related to:
