No Blondegirl - it's definitely Corfu. It was several years ago and I was with a group of friends and we had hired a minibus for a few days to tour the island. As I wasn't driving I didn't take much notice of where we were going.
As I recall, it was a tourist attraction with a car park and I seem to remember sitting in a taverna overlooking the sea. As well as the graves, there were the old ruins of a fort I think, or was it a monastery? I wanted to go back again this summer but had no idea where it was. Can anyone help? Maybe Dimitris knows?

Here you go Sandy, I knew i had sen it before.
Around the corner from Krini, the fabulous 13th century castle of Angelokastro perched on a tower of limestone and overlooking the bays of Paleokastritsa. Accessed by a stone, stepped path, recently renovated, the battlemented summit rock platform has a small church and fabulous views down to the sea 1000ft below. Carved into the rock are some graves, now empty except for rainwater. On his previous visit with a group, one of us  had discovered that one of the graves was twice as bit as them- indicating that someone remarkably tall for mediaeval times had once been buried there.

I hope you don't think this is awful Sandy, but you have really nice legs.

Viv - you're a star. Yes - that is the place excatly as you describe it....and the prize is....one slab of cheddar cheese and a jar of pickled onions for Eggy.... I shall certainly go back and can recommend the spot to everyone. Breathtaking views.
Riggers - I was testing it out for size (I'm about 5ft 8) and just couldn't resist the temptation, but there was no rainwater in it at the time despite it being the last week of October.
Terryw - don't think that photo can be the one I was in - far too skinny for me...lol

As for the 20,000 cockroaches I would certainly have given that one a go, and all the rest, but would have had to pass on the snake. I don't do snakes and am a bit dodgy with rats. That Janice is a complete pain....please will everyone on the forum vote for someone else tomorrow night?

Don't know what happened there. It was meant to say 5 ft 8 but somehow the attempt at a bracket reduced me to only 5ft! Personally I thought it was quite a good fit.

What a fascinating thread started by Eileen's picture of Sandy. Viv added the brilliant description of the Paleokastritsa connection and Eggy added the humour. And all the other bits and pieces from so many forum members.

Makes reading the forum really worthwhile. Well done to all!
