No comments

Today we arrive in the quaint port of Calvi Corsica, reputedly the birthplace of Christopher Columbus.  After enjoying a wonderful breakfast aboard, we decided to walk the streets and enjoy the local calmness that was upon us and to burn a few calories.

Climbing the steps of the citadel made me extremely thirsty which led to several rounds of Peach Bellinis – – hard liquor may I add.  The chosen spot for this carefree afternoon was done knowing we were only steps away from the ship.

After getting to know the staff really well…..it was time to head back to the ship for a mid-day snack and to rest up for dinner as relaxation mode never ended.
