Reisen bedeutet herauszufinden, dass alle Unrecht haben mit dem, was sie über andere Länder denken.
Everything has an end, only the sausage has two ...For many Corsican vacationers, the best time of the year begins and ends in Bastia. Before we were allowed to go on the ferry, we went on a little foray through the city. Again and again you notice the black and white and colorful graffiti on the walls.In the evenings the city has a special romantic flair. The streets were almost deserted, the warm Mediterranean climate and the omnipresent scent of the sea cast a spell over us.When we arrived at the old port, we paused on a bench next to the well-stocked restaurants during the blue hour.Au revoir Corse, à l’année prochaine!

Right next to the car park in Cargèse there is (almost) every evening the opportunity to marvel at the sunset over the Golfe de Peru. We were able to walk from our accommodation in a few minutes and if you get there in time, you can get one of the two bench seats. If not, a long railing is available to lean against and just enjoy those few minutes of golden light.We were there on two evenings. Unfortunately, the first time I only had my cell phone with me. Then the sun set in the sea. That's why we went again the next evening. It was a bit cloudy there, but that didn't affect the spectacle in the sky. The magnificent play of colors, which the sun's rays, with the clouds blown by the wind, painted on the sky, have moved dozens of people to stop and watch very quietly.

We received this tip from the landlady of our quarter.The path begins between two small stone walls and runs around the peninsula at about the same height. At the end you reach a fairly newly built Corsican stone house. Behind this house you can go down to the coast.However, we have chosen the middle way up to the tower. Between the maquis, on the dusty path, it goes slightly upwards. When we arrived at the tower, we found that it was not accessible. It is completely walled up all around. You still have a wonderful view of the sea and several other old Genoese towers.Then we are on the same way back to the new stone house and took the path right next to the house in the direction of the harbor. Down on the coast, where the turquoise blue sea meets the rocks, there are beautiful formations and again and again very small dreamy bays.At some point you will reach the place again and can walk along the road to the small and well-protected harbor. In the harbor, on the promenade there are several restaurants, two diving centers and a boat rental company. From the port, we then hiked the somewhat steeply uphill road back up to our quarters.

We took this tour from a newly acquired hiking book: "Sentiers de Corse - Tours genoises, 89 strolls et randonées". We didn't want to do an extreme tour, as there was a lot of heat today.In 1994 we were already near here once. The campsite from back then either no longer exists or we haven't found it.The parking lot was easy to find. From there we first walked along the "Crique de la Plage de Capo di Feno" until the hiking trail along the coast began. It is relatively flat and the macchia alternates between simple undergrowth and head-high bushes. The scent of Corsica is omnipresent.In two places huge swarms of insects buzzed so fast over a bush that one could only perceive them with the naked eye as lightning-fast wisps. I was able to capture a snapshot in one of the photos.Small rocks alternated with small sand and gravel bays. Some were very beautiful, others were full of alluvial seaweed and some others were unfortunately full of the remains of our plastic society. The alluvial plastic parts were deliberately piled up in two places. Hopefully as a reminder of what we are doing to our seas. Quote from Herbert Grönemeyer: "The world is friendly, why aren't we?"Unfortunately, we couldn't hike our tour to the end. On the area of the penultimate bay in front of our actual destination, a hermit has spread out and quickly declared the entire area and the paths as his private property. With handwritten signs he has forbidden passage and passage. 🤔We tried to get further over the rocks by the sea, but the closer you get to the tower it gets more and more difficult. That's why we turned around and decided to turn into one of the many bays, take a swim and cool off.

As a final dive, the dive center owner suggested we combine two dive sites. He deliberately wanted to keep an eye out for larger animals.We were very lucky again: after about 20 minutes a sea hare was sitting on the rock face. So far I've only heard of it and never seen one myself.When we wanted to go on, a second sea hare swam just past us. What elegance! How it moves in the water through undulating movements of the whole body. Such moments are indescribable.A short time later, two very large groupers got into an argument and quarreled over the territory. A school of barracudas then made their rounds calmly and swam over us.

Corsica, one of my favorite islands, diverse and beautiful. Even after almost twenty years of diving, we always like to come back. The Mediterranean around this island has something special and with every dive there is something new to discover. A few times we have already been to the imposing pinnacles of Les Cathedrales. They have their unique charm and offer incredibly beautiful plays of light with the sun in the background. Yellow anemones, red hard corals and and and .... Magnific! Fabulous! Dreamlike!

We discovered this little tour by chance and you are really far from any tourist destination in Corsica.A narrow asphalt runway leads to the few parking spaces that can be counted on one hand. But since very few people visit this tower, you can almost always find a parking space.First you hike along the asphalt road and then for a short time on a Corsican dust and gravel path. A conspicuous cairn with a stick indicates the turn-off to the tower on the right. You hit it in and follow it for about twenty minutes, passing countless strawberry trees. Initially, the path is supported by a small stone wall. Then it goes through the fragrant macchia and the undergrowth of the hinterland. Here one or the other scratch can get, as the path is not often taken and therefore is probably very rarely straightenedAbout a hundred to two hundred meters from the destination, you can already see the tower standing on its hill. Then you follow the narrow path in the bushes for the last stretch and think that you have already walked past when he suddenly stands to your right.This Genoese tower is located in the municipality of Coti-Chiavari on the west coast of Corsica and is located at an altitude of 119 meters above zero. Construction of the tower began around 1597.The entrance is about 4m above the ground and can be reached by a little climbing. Inside there should still be a tinkered ladder, which should be quite rotten. It leads to the stone steps, which start further above and via which you can reach the upper platform.Even from below you have a very nice view of the sea and the adjacent gulf.We also tried to follow the path that leads to the sea below the tower. But after a while this was completely overgrown, no longer recognizable as a path and so things are reversed again without being achieved.Back on the dust track, we followed it down to the sea. It appears to have only recently been dredged. The traces of the excavator shovels are still clearly visible everywhere.Once at the bottom, we have chosen a small bay between the rocks and have cooled off a little in the sea before we started the way back to the car.
