Ever fancied an escape to an island hideaway? How about a trip to exotic Greece? I confess I’ve been dreaming of both lately.
You’ve all heard how we authors work alone, hunched over our computers, cut off from the world.
Well, OK, I know some who write in their local café! But generally we spend solitary hours locked away indoors, living life vicariously through our characters. Is it any wonder we sometimes dream of wonderful locations for those characters?
So today I’m taking you to one of my favourite dream locations. In this case it’s a real place and I used it in my book. I could actually pinpoint a lot of the scene locations on a map!
Welcome to Corfu.
The streets of old Corfu town
The sheer scenic beauty of the place
I'll leave you with a photo of some very old olive trees. These grand old trees are all over the island and make beautiful shady groves, as well as being a source of food and oil. Greek olive groves are one of my favourite places. And when they're on a slope down to a sparkling sea and also shelter some ancient ruins...what's not to love?
I hope you enjoyed this little excursion to the Mediterranean.
If you could plan a week’s dream escape, where would you go?
In case you’re wondering, the book set in Corfu is WEDDING NIGHT REUNION IN GREECE (out now).
