Travel Diary | Mediterranean Cruise | Ajaccio, Corsica
21st July 2015
I know, my last few Travel Diary posts have been very long. However, the next two will be short and sweet because my visits to Ajaccio and Palamos were exactly that.
We hadn’t booked excursions so we just got off the ship and explored the port towns in the mornings. We then head back to the ship to spend some time making the most of the all inclusive drinks.
Corsica is an island that is technically a part of France. We docked in the port of Ajaccio which is famous for being the birth place of Napoleon.
I’ve visited Ajaccio before (and wrote a little about recreating memories there in this post) but it was Tyrone’s first time, so I happily showed him around. The weather wasn’t very good and most of the town was shut as it was a Sunday, but I took a few photographs to give you an idea of what Corsica is like.
The weather makes all of my photographs look quite dramatic. We took a walk along this little beach but it wasn’t warm enough to sit out and enjoy the view, which is a shame.
Inside the walls of the fort there is two donkeys and a goat, for no apparent reason.
As you can see, most of the shops were shut.
