The Corfu Trail
19 Oct 2018 — 28 Oct 2018
The least-researched of my hikes, I primarily chose the Corfu Trail for its climate and campability and didn’t give it more thought than that. After the Camino and Scottish Ways had proven easier than anticipated, I flew off to Greece with no more than a trail map PDF and offline Google Voice language pack.
With no knowledge of the trail beforehand, I had no idea what to expect. Certainly not that Corfu would be empty as it was in the off-season, meeting only two other hikers in as many weeks; nor for it to remind me more of Cebu than the glamorous Mediterranean; nor be so full of strays set loose by people that could no longer afford to keep them.
And I certainly didn’t expect one to follow me home.
