Corfu Stuck in a lift with a turtle

There are a lot of steps at the Adonis and Asonitis Apartments in Corfu so the sensible route to ground level is by the lift (elevator) so rather than tackle the challenging vertical concrete stairs my habit was to take the easy route. Today it was my job to bring with me the inflatable turtle so it was a doubly sensible alternative this morning.

We were on level four and I had to go to level minus one but somewhere between one and three the lift suddenly stopped and the lights all went out as though there was a sort of power failure. I waited a minute or two (actually, if I am being honest, only a second or two) and then I descended into frantic panic. I jabbed at the control buttons and it was then that I noticed that they were all damaged and caved in as though someone had attacked them with a lump hammer so I could only conclude that this sort of thing was a regular occurrence.

  1. One of my top picks from your blog Andrew. I burst out laughing just at the glimpse of that turtle. πŸ™‚


  2. Did you say that complex has had a 4 star renovation? To be honest, it did need a bit of work. Cracking view and cheap prices, but not very modern!


  3. Sorry, Andrew. The turtle steals the show. πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€
    I had visions of the turtle squashing all the buttons and causing the lights to go out.


  4. I don’t know how you can do this pose with such a serious face.

    This is the funniest thing I have read….since your last post πŸ™‚ I like that you feel the need to tidy up before the cleaning service arrives, but how was it the turtle’s fault that you got stuck in the lift?
