A trip to a different Greece...

On April 12th 2014 I visited the Corfiot village of Arillas as part of the 50th anniversary celebration for the University of Ioannina, which turned out to be an interesting visit.

Arillas is a small settlement between Agios Stefanos and Agios Georgios, approximately 40 km from Corfu town. What impressed me most was seeing the solidarity, collegiality, companionship, trust and the mutual willingness to support each other, that is noticeable between its residents. They live by the principle that every individual’s effort that serves the shared goal will return to them manifold. In the same way, an action that harms the community will ultimately harm the individual as well.
This motto serves the improvement of the inhabitants’ lives as well as the touristic development of the region, which makes their home and workplace a positive role model as a holiday destination.
