Patience & Frustrations

Good morning from the island of #Corfu! Yes that is correct, I managed to hitch to an island, which wasn’t super intentional.. but cool! I’m now at the huge #marina of #Gouvia and it’s super-early. Once the people wake up I’m going to walk around with this #hitchhiking sign to #Italy to try and find a #yacht or something to cross the Ionian Sea. Do I feel silly for trying this? Radically silly. But I might get lucky if the port authority doesn’t kick me out. I’ve actually been at this marina before in 2013 pre-blogging, when I hitched a private boat for the first time by accident. I got offered a boat ride from a Turkish and a Croatian man in the port of #Budva, #Montenegro and I should have been dropped off at a Montenegrin island, but the next morning I woke up in this harbor in Corfu (with a hangover) and I continued sailing with these guys to #Athens.
Amazing things can be possible, but if not, I’m taking (and paying for..) the midnight ferry to #Bari, #Italy and count my losses. There’s a ferry only twice a week and #freecamping here is near impossible (with fines of €150 when caught by the police) and camping/hotel owners could get a fine of €5000 if they don’t register me. It’s so #touristy here that #hospitality = money, not a warm welcome.
