There’s a famous Greek island off the coast of Turkey that is known for its centurions, despite what the Western world considers indulging in bad habits; aÂ bottle of wine a day, cigarettes, soft drinks. The residents make up for the bad habits with plenty of better ones, including anÂ active lifestyle, a diet heavy in antioxidants and light on meat, and daily naps.
For our summer vacation, we decided to live the Greek life for one week on the island of Corfu. A popular destination for Brits and Irish, the island is known for its beautiful beaches and relaxed lifestyle. Each day we spent either at the pool or finding a secluded beach, and each night was spent ingesting copious amounts of feta, tomatoes, and grilled meats.
We stayed in Gouvia and took a scooter (â‚¬20 per day) to Paleokastritsa and Kaminaki Beach.
