My Family and Other Animals (1st 10min)

If you don't know the books by Gerald Durrell...."My family and other animals" ...wonderfull summer reading...and about Corfu (of course!) :)
It is a true story about childhood years on Corfu , amazing and wonderfully told- with great humor and many funny scenes. My love for Corfu has a lot to do with this book, as i myself also had the chance to live through magical summer vacation on Corfu as a child, far away from "civilisation"  and rainy months in Germany!
Through the books by G.Durrell ( there are quite a lot and all of them wonderfull) there is a lot of interesting stuff to learn about nature-all described in such an interesting way that even if one is not a "nature-fanatic" it is ever so interesting to read! AND you get into the Corfu-Mood, which has not changed much over the years!
