I was dreading it after hearing the tales, especially that only specially trained pilots will fly to Corfu due to the length of the run way, and that it looks like your landing in the middle of the water.
Flying over Corfu island at midday on a hot day was so beautiful, and I didnt really care if the airport was like an old shed! I just wanted to hit that sunshine!
Off the plane, down the steps, feel the sunshine on your face and dig the sunglasses out! Up the two little ramps to passport control, one guy who never even looks! Two carousels, OK, its a bit of a wait, but you can go outside and have a ciggie and buy a cool drink from the machine. Some Brits love queueing, or pushing to the front, to me this aint going to make your bag come out any quicker, so just stand back and think of that lovely cool swimming pool and your first drink!
I always tie a scarf or bandanna or piece of ribbon around the handles of my case, so I know its deffo mine!
Then its out to find the rep and onto those loveyl air conditioned coaches for a tour of the island!
Have a lovely holiday, Im off to find my sunglasses!
