Corsica, April 2018
A crazy spring operation. Thomas and I drive in total 1680 miles (2700 km) with a VW van just to ride about 1000 miles (1600 km) on our motorbikes on Corsica. But it is worth it. Corsica in spring is quite decent with nice temperatures around 70 F (20 C). The island is beautiful with a huge variety of scenery. There are steep mountains and cliffs, a beautiful coast line, many animals and french food. We enjoyed our stay there very much.
We have to drive 750 miles (1200 km) through 4 countries (Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy) to get to the ferry in Savona/Italy. We start at 5 am in the morning and the ferry will leave at 9 pm in the evening. This is exhausting.
The ferry goes over night and arrives in the morning in Bastia. Then there are about 100 miles (150 km) to the hotel. So there is time for a first little ride in the afternoon.
We ride into North Western direction. We discover pigs, mountains and good food.
We look at the other side of the island. Highlight will be Bocca di Sorba where we let the quadrocopter fly
We discover two stunning mountain views on tiny little roads and we return to Bonifacio. We explored a little path which brought us straight to the edge of the cliffs. A good place to fly.
We go to the red cliffs of Calanques de Piana at the Western coast. Quite impressive. But Bocca di Sant'Ustasgiu impresses us too.
We have time left for a small mountain loop. Then we have to go back to the ferry.
We have to drive another 750 miles (1200 km) home to Berlin
