Bonjour Corsica

I'm back with some more photos from our European vacation.  Last week, I shared our visit to Genoa, Italy and today I wanted to give you the scoop of our next port of call- Ajaccio, Corsica.

Corsica is an island off the coast of France and is a French territory.  We visited Ajaccio which is the capital of Corsica and was the birthplace of Napoleon Bonaparte.  Okay, enough with the history lesson, here are the pictures!

It was fun to see visit a place that looked both French and tropical at the same time (lots of palm trees everywhere).  I'll be sharing our next stop- Cannes, France soon.  

In the meanwhile, don't forget to enter this awesome giveaway for a 3M DIY kit.
