Snapshots From My Travels: Corsica

Here is the view walking along the edge of the sea in Ajaccio, the capital of Corsica, a French island in the Mediterranean and the birthplace of Napoleon. The water is so many colors of blue!

Corsica is the fourth largest island (after SicilySardinia, and Cyprus) in the Mediterranean. It lies 105 miles (170 km) from southern France and 56 miles (90 km) from northwestern Italy, and it is separated from Sardinia by the 7-mile (11-km) Strait of Bonifacio.

We took a trip to the top of one of the many mountains and had Corsican snacks and local wine. It is a beautiful island.
