From Spartilas - the "balcony" of Corfu

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

The trip above the mountains just beneath the Pantocrator is worth the effort once you see these fantastic views towards the city of Corfu + the southern part of the island.

Beautiful composition & view, Johannes... I can see why you would enjoy a holiday there! Like

Greetings, Marlene

Johannes Lundstrøm on October 22, 2012

Thanks a lot Marlene for your like. As we were walking along the road to take pictures of this beautiful view we suddenly heard a "ti stille" which is danish and means "be quit". It was a danish woman who is married to one of the locals. She lived in a lovely three storey house with this fantastic view. Don't say the world is big.
Kind regards, Johannes

Schönes Wochenende, Angelika

Hallo Angelika,
Vielen Dank. Eigentlich möchte ich gern dass Foto eine halbe Stunde früher aufgenommen haben, aber die Strassenbeschilderung am Korfu ist wirklich eine Herausforderung. Um über den Bergen zu kommen solte ich eine Landstrasse finden. Von der richtung wo ich kam war kein Schild. Ich bin dann zu weit gefahren, kehrte um, und dann war ein Schild, aber ich bin wieder vorbei gefahren. Noch mals umdrehen, und nochmals, un dann ganz langsam. Da war es, zwischen zwei Häuser. mehr wie einem einfahrt, wo zwei Autos nicht einander passieren konnte und wo nur kleine LKW's durchfahren könnte. Ich glaube du kommst auch nicht mit deinem WoMo durch.
Hat aber endlich geklapt.

Hello Ahmet Bekir,
Thank you very much for your like. It was worth the effort going over the mountains to get this view into the camera although it was very difficult finding the road which in Acharavi more looked like a narrow private passage between two houses than a secondary road. A truck could not pass.
Kind regards from Copenhagen, Johannes

A beautiful view, indeed! Like

Hello again Marlene,
I am also glad that you like this fantastic view. As I was about to take the picture someone on a balcony spoke danish. It was a danish girl married to a local living in a wonderful house with that view. She told me about the nickname of the village - the balcony of Corfu. A little further down there is a restaurant with this view.
A big hug from Denmark,
