Only a few days now till Geoff and I go off to Corsica, where we hope to walk down the spine of Corsica , a walk known as the GR20.
We are walking it north to south,doing the hardest days walking in the first half.
We fly out of Stansted to Nice very early on Saturday morning,Going to spend the day in Nice before catching the high speed ferry over to Calvi at 17.45. Its a three hour trip so should get there around 20.45.
We are booked into the hotel Monte Grosso in Calenzana for the Saturday night, a good nights sleep before starting the walk on the sunday.
We have also booked into the hotel Le Chalet,in Haut Asco on the 19th, our third walking day and the night before the Cirque de la solitude.The day that most walkers dread !!!
The idea is to keep my ruc-sac as light as possible…no luxuries on this trip.

It will be grand I am sure. I can’t wait to hear your stories!!
Good luck Sally, hope the weather stays kind (not to hot, cold or wet).
Sounds like you’ve done all your planning and training and are both well prepared.
Just one point of caution, Geoff mentions that this is the first time heâ€™s â€œdone a long distance walk with anyoneâ€ so maybe a good idea to take a whistle to attract his attention just before he disappears over the horizon saying to himself â€œIâ€™m sure Iâ€™ve forgotten somethingâ€ Either that or get him to carry both packs 🙂
Have fun (and a safe trip)
Wonder what we will forget 🙂 should be great. first time I have done a long distance walk with anyone and first long holiday with a girlfriend 🙂
Have a good trip Sally, it looks amazing, I am sure you will have a brilliant time. x x
Will be a very exciting time for me…. never been so far away from home or away for so long….. never walked so far either, all sounds scary to me 🙂
Geoff and I would like to visit Sicily some time too…..
I’ve always wanted to go to Corsica so look forward to reading all about it! Have a good trip, Sally!
