Passing Cape Levkas where the proto-lesbian and perhaps bisexual lyric poet Sappho allegedly jumped from the Leucadian cliffs (White Cliff, rising some 70 m from the sea) to her death in around 570 BCE after her lover Phaon, a ferryman from Mitylene on Lesbos, had refused her love.

Visiting the dominating 1595 CE Venetian fortress on the steep peninsula, located W of the beautiful coastal village of Assos and overlooking the bay from “aloft”.

Pigging out on delicious seafood at the finest taverna in the Ionians, so far: restaurant "Anait" at the harbour front which is made up of whitewashed and pastel Greek houses under a blue sky.

Chillaxing in our cockpit and reading about Cephalonia during the time of WWII in Louis de Bernieres’ popular novel "Captain Corelli's Mandolin" which is believed to be based on events that occurred in the picturesque village of Farsa, just outside of Argostoli.
