A Hidden Paradise // Corfu, Greece
Louis and I just had our 2 year anniversary (yay!) and we wanted to go on a special trip to celebrate. He's also about to leave for a 3 month around the world flight and we were in need of some quality time. Plans kept changing and somehow we found ourselves searching for flights about 4 hours before we wanted to be flying out of London.
Randomly, we came across Corfu - an island in Greece I'd never heard of and Louis had never been to - and the $80 flights sold us. (Can we just take a moment and appreciate European budget airlines? Unreal!) We booked the flights and in the car on the way to the airport were frantically looking for an Airbnb. For what has to be the most last minute trip we've ever been on, we had the most incredible time! By accident, we stumbled across paradise.
We stayed in the most beautiful beach house Airbnb and took the first three days off - from everything. No phones, no laptops and no contact with the outside world. Every time we get to do this I feel so rested and more importantly our relationship always seems to have moved up a level. In a world of endless distractions, choosing to turn off and be present is one of the best things we can do for ourselves and each other. We also got to really experience Corfu - full of beautiful hidden beaches, crystal clear waters and the most delicious food!
