Corsica

Post by gswalton » Thu Aug 07, 2014 5:46 am

I'm presently taking a group around The island of Corsica,

I'm here until next Thursday then catching an overnight ferry back to France for the long drive home to Oxford.

There is more unmade roads On the island than made roads, a fantastic place for laning but some are very hard and it's along wAy from home so care is key.

Unfortunately 1 vehicle has broken down and already out, we are not sure how it's going to get home yet the AA won't recover it so it's a risk.

Some photos from the 2 days done so far.

We seriously considered Corsica last year but decided it probably wasn't a good idea to travel on our own, after the break down in your group it looks like we made the right decision. It looks like we missed a great place.

They stayed at the first campsite,
I believe they are paying for it to be towed to the ferry then try g to drive it home themselves,
They have had to buy a new ferry ticket as we are leaving from the opposite side of the island and there's a big mountain in the way.
