walking the corfu trail


Three septuagenarians walk 180km of the Corfu Trail in eight days, from 18-30’s Kavos to picturesque Agni. The three oldies photograph flowers and sample Corfiot cuisine.  Each day their local guest-walkers tell their stories. These 15 interviews help one understand Corfu.  The maps and description of their walk will be invaluable for those who want to experience this spectacular and hilarious hike. The photos of the flowers are the first published for the island.

"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."
Mark Palmer, Daily Mail

"An enchanting book and a great companion for the walker and lover of nature and flowers."
Tony Maniscolco, Ramblers World Wide Holidays
