Kefalonia or Cephalonia - choose your own spelling - is a pretty big island. With a land area of 302 square miles, it is twice as big as The Isle of Wight which lies off Britain's south coast. In my travels, I have visited more than twenty of Greece's many islands but never before Kefalonia.
In recent years, one of its main claims to fame has been its association with Louis de Bernieres' brilliant best-selling novel "Captain Corelli's Mandolin" which was turned into a mediocre film in 2001.
I don't know how much of the island we will get to see in the week ahead. Our chosen hotel is in a remote and quiet location on the south coast. If the pound doesn't tumble any further I expect we will hire a car for three days and use it to see more of Kefalonia than the little corner occupied by our hotel. There are beaches, mountains, farming villages, ancient archaeological sites, olive groves, old men with donkeys and old women with black shawls. Plenty of photo opportunities.
This may come as bad news to you but I shall be taking this laptop on holiday and with good wi-fi promised, I expect to compose some holiday blogposts. We will be flying away quite early on Wednesday morning.
