Three septuagenarians walk 180km of Corfu Trail in eight days, from Kavos on the southern tip to picturesque Agni in the northeast. 6 Freytag and Berndt maps guide the reader along the trail and 25 views illustrate the beauty of their journey. The three oldies photograph flowers identifying 150 (see www.corfuflowers.com), 48 of which are in the book, and sample Corfiot cuisine with recipes shown. Their guests talk about their island. They include Corfu Trail founder Hilary Paipeti; Greek way-marker Harry, who walks like a Sports Range Rover off-road; the author’s life-long friend Fotis, just back from running round Mount Olympus; retired English teachers Bill and Barbara; Patricia Cookson, founder of CV Travel; and German rocket engineer Dierk, his French wife Christine and their Greek dog.
The Daily Mail said: “No one feels the beat of Corfu’s heart more keenly than John Waller. His latest book, Walking the Corfu Trail, captures the magic of this beautiful island in such a way that by the end of the journey you know the place so well that you can almost call it home.”
Ramblers World Wide Holidays said: “An enchanting book and great companion for the walker and lover of nature and flowers.”
