The next trip of 2018 was to the little French island of Corsica. Having visited the neighbouring Italian island of Sardinia the year before we were keen to compare the two.
The first stop is the capital city of Ajaccio complete with its pretty town beach.
Ajaccio has a wealth of history. Not least of which is that it is the birthplace of French Emperor Napoléon Bonaparte in 1769.
His ancestral home, Maison Bonaparte, is now a museum displaying family heirlooms.
They also quite like lots of hogs – mainly down to the fact that it is a local delicacy thanks to large numbers of wild piggies that roam the island.
We enjoy a lovely sunset on the beach to round off a perfect first day.
