As I already said, Corsica was great. I didn’t spend enough time back there, only 5 days… I might go back again later, but now is time to prepare my great Asian trip! One month, 5 countries and thousands miles ahead of me. Sounds good!
Let’s talk about Corsica for now. In an ancient post, I spoked about the rattling fact that every roadsign in USA get shot. I was wondering if it was the same elsewhere in the world… I partly got an answer when driving around Corsica.
Every damn road sign got their share of lead too. Still don’t know what is the meaning of that (or if it is just a hobby) but it sure scare the foreigner ;D
Here, two quick pictures of Corsica : our welcoming sign and the reflection of our departure on the ferry window.
Here is the first post-processed picture from Corsica. I took it during our first day, when we went hiking on the far end of the Cap Corse.
The Cap Corse is a 40km long peninsula located at the Northern tip of the island. It’s the pointing finger of Corsica. La Sierra, a mountain chain, lies inside the finger, giving it a beautiful hilly look.
All around the Cap Corse are buildt Genoese Towers, that are the heritage of the Genoese occupation of Corsica from 1347 to 1729. These Towers were erected at the request of communities to protect villages against the pirates. They spread all around Corsica, with one third concentrated around Cap Corse.
Here is a photography of the Finocchariola Island with its collapsing Genoese Tower.
