The accident rates for quad-bikes are appalling, so it's possible to have some sympathy. For once, this is not a money-making event.
Rubbish, accident rates for 2 wheeled bikes are worse. Which do you have experience with Jim?

Just use an overseas no commission credit card, as Jim and I do, this week I got 1.138, obviously no commission or charges, the best rate possible,

Also Mon Amour in Kavadadas and Illias in Avliotes, why are these not included also?

Aline, why have eateries outside of Agios Stefanos been included on "where to eat"? for example Brouklis in Arillas and Dyionasis in Afionas. If you are to include these then how about The Night Owl/ Panorama/Porto Timoni in Afionas, not to mention the numerous other restaurants/tavernas in Arillas.

Aline, on every single one of your "San Stefanos Online North West Corfu" pages it shows at the bottom of each page -- "Where to eat" and "Cafes and bars" surely this is advertising, something you're telling forum members not to do.

This is always a delicate issue. The general rule in the past has been to praise, but not condemn.

Personally, I think the idea is not to overdo it. There are some people on Facebook who post pictures of every meal they have, every sunset they've seen, and ever cat they stroked. Call me a miserable old fart (join the club) but I don't like looking at other peoples' dinners that much.

The Yammas Bar exists for a slightly freer exchange. Before Facebook there were long and heated arguments on here about whether the Romanza breakfast only gave Kumquat jam to a favoured few. There were stories, true and imagined - and the spectre of Vlad the Black Dog figured highly. Alas, those days have gone, buried under a pile of cats and dinners. But I would like the forum to remain a source of information and fun - not a review section.   

I still get my Kumquat jam, and yes, you are a miserable old fart Jim.

Dread to think what the exchange rate is in Ag Stef at present, with commission deducted of course.

I normally do a review but didn't this year as I only tend to report that we had a good time however in the spirit of friendship here's mine.
Everything was very good except for the bin situation which the locals had solved by taking the rubbish themselves to a local football pitch. Can you imagine that here there'd be rioting in the streets.
One thing I must tell you though is that exactly halfway through our fortnight and settling down for breakfast at Fedra my two sons appeared with beach towels and a cheery hello. we were gobsmacked. The eldest was supposed to be in work as he had no annual leave left the youngest was waiting for his A levels and looking for work.
Well my wife burst into tears and I checked how many euros we had - they ain't cheap our two.
What a surprise.
Anyway a great second week was had by all.

I remember it well
