Corsican rest

Well it took about six hours to fly from the strip to Calvi on the northern tip of Corsica with a stop in Clermont for fuel and Customs. Leaving Wiltshire in the morning and eating dinner under the Mediterranean sun still has some magic when you fly yourself there.

Calvi is a great little town with a bustling harbour, loads of restaurants and a km or two of sandy beaches. I'm not a huge fan of beach life, but have to admit that swimming in the warm Med while looking at the snow capped mountains to the south of Calvi was kind of nice.

We ate a couple of evening meals in Calvi but they were OK rather than great - I wish I'd done a bit more reseach before leaving. Something to bear in mind for the next time.
