• Book: My Family and Other Animals
  • Location: Corfu
  • Author: Gerald Durrell



Read this book for GCE (yes no S in those days!) in 1969 and it kindled my desire to visit Corfu, which I eventually did in 1987 with husband and two small sons! Took a lovely boat trip up the coast on a gorgeous summer day and was moved to tears when we passed the White House! The book was brought to life in the same year when the BBC aired it’s charming adaptation of the book. Happy days!
