2017.06.28 - Corsica - Day 4 - 18 photos

Another expedition! We decided to explore the northern part of the island, so we booked a room at a brewery/farm for one night.

The landscape on Corsica is lovely.

We stopped for lunch in the beautiful town of Saint Florent. Stocked up on supplies on the local supermarket and headed for for the east side of the island, over the mountains. Pro tip : to get unusual expressions on people faces, carefully shout their name just before you take the picture :) It doesn't always work out well though..

The mountains just north of Saint Florent had some spectacular shapes. Would love to stay longer to catch some more dramatic light.

The forest around our hotel for the night has lots of cork trees. The kind of tree that produces the cork for wine bottles. I've never seen them before.
