Interrailing Part 2. Houdoe Corfu
I read your letter with great interest and I love the way you look at superstition. Have you ever heard about The Law of Attraction? If not, you should look it up, definitely. It basically says that whatever you say to yourself or you believe in, finds a way to become true. So if you really want to move house or go on a trip (or anything basically) and you’ll say to yourself that it’s possible, it will become possible. I really believe this, because the way you think about things influences your behavior and thus, what you’ll experience and how open you are to different things. It kind of connects to superstition, since it’s both about a way of thought.
Enough said about superstition, I’ll update you on our adventure! So last week we found ourselves in Corfu! The first time in Greece for the both of us, and trust me, we’ve had enough Tzatziki for the entire year!
Corfu was beautiful, very green and our hostel had a view that looked out over the sea! We crossed around the island on a quad and visited the village of Pelekas from which we could look out all over the island. What I really do love about traveling is all the different people you meet on a trip. We sang songs with a German family who brought their guitar, while drinking wine and sitting under the stars. (The amount of stars you can see on Corfu is ridiculous) Went to an aquapark with Helena and Ronja from Denmark. And it was FUN! I didn’t think that water slides and swimming pools would make me as happy as they did, but I felt like I was 10 years old again.
We also met Dominque from Australia, who was quite funny actually and kept calling Veerle Verbear (like: Veerbeer). He looked like he was at least 25 but he actually just turned 20, which made me the oldest of Veerle, Dom, Gavin and I. Which felt weird haha. We went to the beach with a group of people where we had a bonfire. I don’t think there’s anything that gives me more of an holiday feeling.
We also introduced ourselves into world of hitchhiking which is fairly easy in Corfu and we’ve done it several times now. I don’t think we’ve ever had to wait for more than 5 minutes for a car to pull over. Everyone was so friendly.
Also, I have decided that we’re gonna make mousaka together because it is ridiculously delicious and if you miss out on this in life, it’s no good.
For now we’re finding ourselves in the apartment of an Italian guy who has helped us very very much and we’ll leave for Cinque tomorrow. We ate rice with tomato sauce which was interesting. I notice that I talk a lot about food haha, but I guess it’s just because I love food and it’s quite an essential thing.
How was Lyon and what are you doing in Barcelona?
Let us know!
