GREECE ~ Corfu ~

... A pile of postcards and a laptop that doesn't start up ... frustrating😒... fingers crossedđŸ€ž everything is back to normal... so here is *finally* the beautiful aerial view of the Old Town of Corfu, fortress and nearby marinas...  a picturesque Greek paradise... it attracts more than one million tourists per year and has become a favorite destination for summer holidays (also for a lot of Belgian people) ... with many historical and religious monuments, lush greenery, olive trees and splashed by turquoise waters... Big Thanks dear Andrene!! \_(♥‿♥)_/
