A Day in Ajaccio Corsica

IMG_1719

The birthplace of Napoleon, Ajaccio is the diverse capital of Corsica with an impressive harbour filled with boutiques and fashionable resturants. This place has a sense of charm where the history is visible, the water is turquise and the food is delicious. We walked along the beach line watching the beautiful sail boats in the horizon. Similarly, we strolled through the local market where shoppers were smiling enjoying the hot summer day behind their sunglasses, summer dresses and straw hats. The aroma was amazing and had an impressive collection of cheeses and spices. This idyllic place gave a sense of safeness and calmness as nobody seemed to be in a rush, it seemed to also calmn us down and allowed us to enjoy the tranquil Meditarainian scenery it deserves.  Mr. N and I had increadible lunch, I had a salad nicoise and Mr. N had the best pizza I have ever tasted. The base was so thin and crusty and was topped with local sausage, cheese and divine forest mushrooms. This rustic pizza was eaten with olive oil that contained bay leaves and lots of chili and together it tasted like heaven on earth.
