Laid Back Stopover in Ajaccio, Corsica

When I travel to an island, I often have in mind the title of Michel Houellebecq’s book, “The Possibility of an Island” that I haven’t read: I only like the way the title sounds. I love the Mediterranean for its particular light, the color of the sky and the sea and its incredible cultural diversity. From one island to another, there is a strong identity,  different architecture and story. During the Indian summer, I had a short stopover of few hours in Ajaccio. I wanted to visit the house where Napoleon Bonaparte was born… which unfortunately was closed. So I went to the semi-deserted beach of Saint François, where the water was super chilly (lol!). But the view of the colorful city of Ajaccio is beautiful and clear water! Even time stretches, it’s already time to leave. Corsica bella.
