Travel Inspiration - Kefalonia

     We're taking a trip to an idyllic little island off the coast of Greece this time. I visited here a few years ago, as a family holiday during my teens. We'd been to mainland Greece and the island of Crete before, but there's so much more to the country that I haven't yet explored. Anyway, Kefalonia is fairly small and very mountainous. Driving through the middle, everything is quiet and remote, while the main activity is along the coast, with coves and beaches dotted throughout, some only found by narrow roads with steep drops down the mountain sides. The architecture isn't exactly as grand as the classical Greek monuments in Athens, but is instead a much more rustic and simple version of that. Beaches, mountains, and quiet seaside villages; what more could you want for a peaceful getaway?
