Yes, yes, yes...

The northern shore of the Greek island of Corfu also lies in the Adriatic Sea as defined by the International Hydrographic Organization. The IHO boundary places a few smaller Greek islands (ones northwest of Corfu) in the Adriatic Sea, as well.

It's not defined that way by me so it doesn't count. My definition is as stated: the sea between Italy and the Balkans that definitely does not go anywhere near Greece.

Fee - What does 'it is not defined that way by me so it doesn't count', mean? That's the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard - pure nonsense.

The island of Corfu (which belongs to Greece) and more little Greek islands north of it, are in the Adriatic Sea.

The Adriatic Sea goes from approximately the eastern most part of Italy to the western most point of Albania and upwards. this does not reach far enough south to include the islands of Corfu, Othonoi, Platia or Ereikoussa. Look at this map for the borders of the Ionian sea and subsequently the Adriatic Sea. https://www.worldatlas.com/aatlas/infopage/ionansea.gif

The Aegean sea is to the east of Greece, the Ionian sea is to the west.

Why is the Ionian Sea here when Ionia is way over there?

The boundary between two seas is usually where the shortest distance between two land masses is. So in this case it's between the town of Otranto in Italy and the Karaburun peninsula in Albania.

You're quite right, per this map. The dividing line between the Adriatic and Ionian is the Strait of Otranto, whose narrowest point is between the heel of Italy and Albania, well north of Corfu, so that would seem to be the logical place to draw the line between seas. The IHO has decided to draw the line from the southern tip of the heel -- well after the narrowest part of the Strait -- for apparently political rather than geographical reasons. I can see wanting to define the Adriatic as everything on the west coast of the Italian peninsula, but it just doesn't look right. They're clearly including part of the Ionian Sea (and the entire Straight of Otranto) in their map of the Adriatic. Their definition doesn't make sense to me.

Very pretty drive up the coast from Durres in Albania, through Podgorica, out to Budva, up past Kotor and on to Dubrovnik. Then later I took the train from Zagreb to Trieste via Ljubljana. I had a nice time there apart from my experiences in Serbia.

Yes, first visited briefly, and then was trapped there for a long time after Serbian border police working in cahoots with the kangaroo court in Prokuplje stole my car, waiting for my extremely inept lawyers to try (and fail) to get it back from the unjust and molasses-like court system.

While in Nis I rescued a small kitten with a gimpy leg off the street, found her a home, fed the many stray dogs, visited the birthplace of Constantine, and enjoyed the sandwiches I would get from Зоки и Нена. But mostly I was bored, frustrated, and depressed. Also while I was in Nis Donald Trump was elected president, so, that sucked, too.

was that when your car was stolen or auctioned "confiscated" because of the stuck up Serbian officials? (no offense to any Serbs)

shortly before. See above. I would have loved to have made the trip I described in my Viper but as it had been stolen earlier I was forced to do it by rental car and by bus.
