Springtime in Corfu

Spring has sprung early in Corfu this year and after a gorgeous and unexpectedly sunny February, everyone in the island is in good spirits as we absorb as much vitamin D as humanly possible in case of another spell of storms.

Flowers are blooming, bringing out the bees and the Scops owls. It’s even bringing a smile to the faces of the grumpiest of residents on the island and it’s amazing how much a bit of good weather makes everything seem a lot better.

During the next couple of months and due to the good weather, many locals will be seen out in their gardens, cutting grass, painting walls/houses, burning wood and having a clear out ready for the busy season ahead.

As the season starts to emerge from April onward, March is a very important and often stressful month for those who work during the season. Quite often there just isn’t the time during the summer months to keep on top of the land as work proves to be jam packed once tourists start arriving. For business owners, March can be manic as buildings need to be repainted, cleaned and prepped in time for the busy months.

Local people work very hard during the winter months to ensure that summer will be successful as for many, this is their main source of income. In the coming weeks, there will be many arranged beach clean ups across the island as unfortunately, winters in Corfu can bring quite torrential weather which brings a lot of plastic/rubbish to the beaches. This is all linked to making sure tourists get the best of what the island can bring.

This year, Easter in Greece will be celebrated on the 28th of April. It’s a hugely celebrated day with many traditions and an absolutely fantastic time to visit Greece (Corfu especially) if culture is a must-see when travelling!

For now, it is the calm before the storm. Plenty of food, local wine and coffee to keep the motors running until the manic months ahead.

If you’re holidaying or travelling in Greece this year, let me know!

      1. Thank you ๐Ÿ™‚ We’re off to Crete, rather than mainland Greece. That’s exactly it, I’m hoping the temperatures are a happy medium between my fair skin and my boyfriend’s mum’s love for hot weather!

    1. I know, it has been a pretty good February. It rained almost every day last year. It’s good and bad. Definitely felt more positive for having some sun but also like… What is going on?!

      Yeah it’s really nice! But never ending. I try to pick up during the season too when I have chance but with millions of tourists coming, it’s so hard!
