... in to Ajaccio in Corsica. A little hidden gem we found many years ago, nip to deck 15, walk to the front of the ship, ignore the Access to Cabins only sign and hey presto you are on top of the bridge and pretty much on your own barring a couple of others who worked it out. It was such a lovely approach this morning we spent 2 and a half hours up there watching us dock. It was like a millpond and a very picturesque approach. The sun was well up ...

... to the ship. We were running a bit late and were the last to board before we set off. Calvi and surrounds were quite modern with a lovely feel. It is the type of place that I could stay for a week or so and relax. Interesting sidelight - when the French first took over the island (I think about the early 1900's) people were banned from speaking or writing Corsican. Anyway our tour guide can speak it and she sang a Corsican song for us. It was a lovely touch. We both ...
