I’ve been lucky enough to enjoy George’s boat seven times over the past five years. It’s a day of cruising the Ionian sea, eating lovely food, doing water-sports and generally relaxing.
George has been entertaining Contiki tours for over 40 years, and now well into his 60s he is still going strong.
What many won’t realise is how nice George is to the staff. We come to visit rarely, our visits last a day and we’re gone. For some like me we get to see him a few times a year, but for others it might only ever be once. This doesn’t matter. George treats you like family, be it some extra food from his own private stash in the bow, to smiles and hugs.
Looking through the photo books of yesteryear, something George only allow people he has got to know, you’ll see the debortuary of days of old. The crazy 70s & 80s, with excess hair EVERYWHERE and a freedom from clothing seldom seen these days due to the over abundance of cellphone cameras.
So to celebrate these days I’ve been making videos of my time onboard. For those that have been I hope these trigger happy memories, for those that have never had the chance I hope this makes you book a ticket.
Had a great day on George’s Boat swimming, eating his famous chips, and generally enjoying the beautiful surroundings that is Corfu.
