Even though Paris is still cold and grey, I'm happy to report that I'm strutting around with a healthy beach tan thanks to a holiday last week in Corsica with Carin, Milsters, Diane and Edna. We spent five days relaxing, dining, strolling and celebrating life in this beautiful island south of France.
Before I continue, I wanted to let you know a couple of admin stuff: this post and the next few will be published from a wordpress application on my iPhone and that it will be a while before I can post my normal camera photographs in this space. My laptop died and is at the repair centre right now. The tech guys confirmed everything in the hard drive is gone. This news gave me no less than two hours of meltdown before I felt ridiculous.
So moving on, please check out my friends' blogs to see fantastic photographs from this vacation. I feel humbled to be surrounded by amazing people and extremely happy to have gone on this trip. Even though it wasn't long, it was that kind of holiday that I would remember forever and didn't want to end.
Corsica is an amazing, tranquil and beautiful place, not to mention historical. It was where Napoleon Bonaparte was born. Aside from this fact being their banking point, it really is a paradise. I didn't realize how much I've been missing beaches and sunlight. To walk around in dresses and sandals everyday, oof! it was glorious. One thing that took me by surprise and worth noting is that the people are charming and drivers actually stop for pedestrians at the zebra crossing. The shock on our faces when this miraculous thing happened. Everytime we’re about to cross (at a crossing), cars stopped as if our lives are precious. Now this is how one know one had already been living in Paris for a while haha.
Sorry for disappearing again but my back up reasonings are pretty good don't you think? In the meantime, I've been enjoying more of my time exploring streets of Paris (and getting reacquainted in avoiding being hit by cars), capturing bits with my phone and posting regularly through Facebook & Instagram and speaking of, here are some mobile snapshots of Corsica. Stay well you xx
