During my boat ride, captain of the boat, Yorgos told me about beautiful islands near Corfu that really stick out of the usual, Paxos and Antipaxos.
The islands are made of white bedrock and the contrast of crystal clear blue waters and the pristine white rock is incredible. Paxos is fairly populated and has three little villages. The starting point is Gaios, the ,,capitol’’. What the fascinated me to most here was the old Venetian fortress built on Da Vinci’s designs. I like ruins, the feeling of history on a place like that is what really gets my head spinning.
I was told that i have to try trout in the fishing village Laka, and I have to say - it was awesome. On the other hand, Antipaxos has no regular population, but there are tavernas, and a vineyard. I can’t really tell if the vine is good (I won’t pretend I know vines) but I can tell you that a glass of vine and the view of the Sun slowly hiding behind the deep blue horizon is a an amazing ordeal.
On the way back to Kavos, it was already evening, and the town was ready to go bananas. But I was too tired, I just wanted to sleep, there was a long day ahead of me.
