In Summer 2007 i visted the island of Corse in France for a summer holiday for 2 weeks. We enjoyed a very nice warm weather there and did a lot of hiking trips as well enjoyed the sea. Corse is a nice Island where you can combine exploring old history and enjoy the beauty of the Island and the nature there. It is a great Island for hiking trips and if you want to go on a swimming holiday this is also a good place for it. The Sea is very beautiful and in summer it is hot enough to cool down in the colder seawater.

Corse has a lot to offer, a lot of very beautiful landscape, mountains, small forests and the sea. I found several old Cork trees growing there. We got there by ferry and this is probably the number one way to get to this island. I was also learning french my first year and I finally was able to use a bit of it in real life. It was funny and good for my ego. Back then I enjoyed swimming in the Sea and in the pool the most the hiking trips I did with my parents where a bit exhausting in the hot weather and I was always looking forward to the swimming stops at the sea.
Back then I only had my Point and shoot Camera from Olympus so don't expect photograpic masterpieces.
