Title: Where's this then?
Post by: Eggy on November 12, 2007, 06:02:53 PM
Probably a very easy question to those brave "hikers" out there, or the not so brave hirers of cars.
( personally I think it's "one helluva" trek )

It certainly was a busy place late morning.
( Well there were 10 people in the little "coffee" shack )

I love the idea of this Topic Eggy, and its another way  of getting through the winter for us poor souls in the cold UK.

Some of us could probably post some of our photos or an area of a photo to keep the topic going.

Are you sure its not Villa Linnakis Eggy? You know what those Scots are like when they are enjoying themselves. I saw the evidence of what they can do  at Wembley in 1977.

Sorry Eileen and Maggie.... couldn't resist a wee dig.

This "quiz"  reminds me of through the Keyhole. I might see the evidence later on today eh Eggy!!!!!!!!!

I was going to say "Helios Court Villa" but Frank's a lot bigger than me.
It's Anaplassis of course, taken last May , I think.

Here's a few more for those who didn't get to it before the Heritage walk closed.

Not sure where that is but there are similar things up in Lancaster/Morecambe in a little village. They are old viking graves that look very similar to your photo Eileen.

Post by: Sandy x on November 15, 2007, 03:46:12 PM
Funny you should say that Shuey. It's my ambition to be on that show but sadly have first to become a celebrity! Why can't they do one for ordinary folk? I absolutely love it and am completely hooked although have to confess I don't know any of the current bunch (yes I know I'm a sad old fogey). I never watch Big Brother but somehow the jungle, the open air and nature....I'd be there like a shot...though might draw the line at eating croc's .....

its not spinalonga the leper island is it?  they were buried on there and have graves
Title: Re: Where's this then?
Post by: Sandy x on November 15, 2007, 07:00:44 PM
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?

Title: Re: Where's this then?
Post by: vivian on November 15, 2007, 10:13:43 PM
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.

There isn't 20,000 cockroaches in there neither. Did you see it on celebrity get me out of here.......riggers....
Title: Re: Where's this then?
Post by: Sandy x on November 16, 2007, 01:04:46 AM
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?
Title: Re: Where's this then?
Post by: Sandy x on November 16, 2007, 01:12:34 AM
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.
Title: Re: Where's this then?
Post by: justphil on November 16, 2007, 01:27:50 AM
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!

Phil and Jen

Knew i'd seen it, , but it took Eggy to remind me where it was!

Just put my Christopsomo in the oven (see Terry's posts about it - think it's in Our little bit of Corfu but forgive me if it's somewhere else) the Greek Christmas bread with raisins and walnuts and flavoured with cardomum. If it's any good, I'll bring a big one with me when we come to Arillas in July.

If nothing else, we can feed the birds (or Eggy?) with it

Post by: TerryW on November 24, 2007, 10:13:08 PM
You have actually done it then philandjen, put the Christopsomo  in the oven. I wish there was a way of having a virtual tasting. I think you need to give a bite by bite, commentry on the texture, the flavour and if it makes you want to eat more.

It really does sound like my type of bread, and it also seems quite healthy as well. I really hope it turns out special.

I am a bread addict, even sweet breads (not that type ) like malt loaf and banana bread.

Maybe you could put a photo of it on the forum, I might be tempted to lick the screen.

Title: Re: Where's this then?

riggers ... If Terrys tongue looks like mine after a session in the Coconut, we'd all chuck our screens in the bin ...

Terry - my take on christopsoms has just come out of the oven and tastes f***ing gorgeous. sliced and smothered in butter..... Will make a big one and bring it with me when I come to Arillas in July.

Title: Re: Where's this then?
Post by: TerryW on November 26, 2007, 10:57:40 PM
Well done Eileen and riggers. It is on the wall at the Horizon by the door. If you have been to the loos at the Horizon you can see it on the way back to the bar.

The artist is George Meris and I think that the painting has wondeful detail and makes you wish you were sitting at the table in the garden. Spiro ( the one with glasses who soon gets married), who works at the Horizon said that he thought the scene was in Kos or Santorini.

I have found other paintings by the artist, mainly on Australian or New Zealand web sites but it is a challenge to try to find 'that'painting.

Well done and thanks for the link, Jen.

What an interesting web site and its interesting how his name is either Meis or Meris. All I need to do now is send an email to see if any prints are still available.

Post by: TerryW on November 27, 2007, 01:11:23 PM
When we were there in July we had eaten a nice lunchtime snack  and  I ended up talking to a jolly largish man whose name was Georgio and I think he was the owner. He asked me where I was staying and I told him the Horizon, and he asked me to give his regards to the "English looking chef who worked there". Apparently Dimitris (the Horizon chef) had worked with Georgio previously.

It had been our first visit to Sidari, and the first person I have a conversation with knows about someone at the Hotel I am staying at. Everybody seems to know everyone else in that part of Corfu.

"Where is it "
But which "water spout" is me. Not that I often fall in water fountains after a heavy drinking session!!

One good thing about this topic is the research it makes you do (well it does me), and you end up finding some very interesting web sites.

http://www.corfu.gr/en.htm  lots of links here

http://users.otenet.gr/~psailasn/index6.htm  this has a very informative history page with some good pictures

I will attempt to find out the price of this but there are some very nice plots around Arillas where you could do your own build.

Ionian Realty team are on the case and will try to get a price. I'm told it may have been on the market a long time.

I've lost track a bit of "Where's this then " - Have we answered all the questions so far?

All I can say about the last one is "It's empty" - If it contained Ouzo or wine then it wouldn't be on it's side in the open it would be in my shed!

My photo was taken at Acharavi. If I'd have faced left instead of right you would have got Roda in the background.

Not sure on the PJ memorial.

First thoughts were it was erected to commemorate the first time an English tourist found free parking in Corfu Town at 1:30 pm on a Monday. But as that probably hasn't happened yet I think it could be something linked with Ochi day ( 1940 ) or possibly 1947 when the islands were liberated.

Great Eggy - Have an asprin.
Its the Ionian States Independence Memorial commemorating 21st May 1864 when as you say GB returned Corfu and the other Ionian Islands back to the Greek people.  I think the Brits only had them because Napoleon had seized them in the first place and when he was defeated we were given them to look after - or is that just my skewed view of history?
Well done Eggy

You can walk round the village and not see a soul unless your in the main square.

I'm glad you posted that picture Viv, because it has made me add Old Perithia to my list of places to visit next July. Thanks.

Very well worth a visit. Spectacular views on the way there and very interesting when you get there. There is also a great taverna that serves excellent lamb....

Just taking a step back, if you go onto our website and look at Corfu May 2007 you will find a section of Old Perthia that gives you a seletion of views there. If you go into the tavena you must try Grandma's walnut cake best one ive ever tasted. yummm. Viv

Hi Vivian
Have just had a lovely twenty minutes browsing round your photographs on your website. http://www.holmvalley.co.uk/ (http://www.holmvalley.co.uk/). I couldn't make it work at first but a little persistence and I got to see the lot.
You've got some great pictures there.  I think anyone who's not had a peek so far should browse around.
I'd never heard of Old Perithia before, so will put it on my list of places to visit.
Best wishes
PJ

I agree Viv....that cake is a definite MUST.....

Viv/Sandy will definately visit there next time. 

Well done Marika, it is panorama bar or sunset bar. 

PJ, agree they are great photos on viv's site, had a good nosy myself. x

Thanks for the link to the Old Perithia photographs Viv, it has made me want to go even more.

Kefalonia had lots of villages like that, due to the 1953 Earthquake, and I used to find the silence really weird, as you just sat in the ruins trying to imagine what life was like before the devastation.

As for the Marika's underwater photo, I think its Eggy with a blonde wig, hiding from Wegg, under the bridge at the Coconut bar.

Mind you Paul I kind of like the second one too...just think how pretty it would be pointed, painted and a few pots of plants dotted around :-)

No I'm not giving it away Riggers...but I'm surprised to read that Eggy has not been in the taverna opposite it...one of the few he's not been in...as well I'm outside arms reach eh Eggs?  ;-)

Eileen,I never looked at the second house with that sort of potential,needs a womans touch I guess.
1 clue for Eggy & Riggers. Jimmy & Spiros would know the answer.

I'm somewhat at a disadvantage as I'm at work where I can't access photos so I'm guessing blind!! But if Jimmy and Spiros will know it I guess it's in Afionas?

You are right there Sandy it is Afionas. Walked there numerous times very nice little village, Regards Suzanne

The house is owned by the brother of Poppy from the Bardis Sun and if I'm not mistaken that's her Dad in the next photo.  How good is that!  W : 0 )

Tis Kavvadades Church. - When they have their festival all that flat area is full of chairs / tables and lambs on spits. Loadsa people with music etc. The place really comes alive.

You're all very welcome - They really make you feel part of the "family" there.
The bad news is that we wanted to be there for New Years Eve but they are closed as Spiro's son is getting married.
( Wonder if he'll cancel it just for us ?)
