Corsica

February 23, 2016

Vancouver, Canada-based freelance writer and photographer Celeste Moure shares her words and images from a lovely trip to the Mediterranean-nestled island of Corsica, France…

Corsica is an enchanting place with a unique identity and a rebellious spirit. It’s filled with posh port towns, tucked-away white sand beaches, rocky gorges and lush mountain ranges with vertiginous, panic-inducing roads. After flying into Ajaccio, we rented a car and set out to explore with just a map and a sense of adventure to guide the way.
