Thanks Eggy for that - know what you mean about the parking.
You are in the wrong century with your guesses.  You need to go back to good Queen Victoria's golden reign - perhaps around 1860.
Best wishes

Maybe 1864 when Britain gave the Ionian Islands back to Greece.

( I got 'eadache now !! )

Great Eggy - Have an asprin.
Its the Ionian States Independence Memorial commemorating 21st May 1864 when as you say GB returned Corfu and the other Ionian Islands back to the Greek people.  I think the Brits only had them because Napoleon had seized them in the first place and when he was defeated we were given them to look after - or is that just my skewed view of history?
Well done Eggy

Negg, fantastic photo, i've been to Acharavi and didnt guess it.  Are you trying to compete with Marika??

The jugs are from the one and only Vivalis.

Mick, you can't guess that would be cheating.  Give Mary a big kiss x

The urn photograph was taken at one of the most popular tourists spots on Corfu.

Hi Sharon!
I know where it is, but I say nothing, because I will give the others a chance ;-)
I only can say it is a beautiful place where you have a beautiful sunset too!
Like from the Horizon! Only a bit higher :-)

Looks like nobody's going to get the well so I will tell you, it's in Old Perithia and if you havent been there you should go, it is fantastic. You can walk round the village and not see a soul unless your in the main square. I think within a few years you won't be able to do this as it is now becoming the in place for x pats to build.  Sharon I knew it was the fish place but couldn't pronouce it let alone spell it. lol Viv
