So finally I get to share the first part of my vacation photos with you all! Last week I went to Corsica with an amazing group of girls to relax, read a book and just get the chance to feel sand underneath my feet again. Ah, I already want to get on a plane and fly back!

We went to Bastia, a city located on the north-east side of the island (which is absolutely huge). Bastia was a mix of everything I love. It was almost like Nice, Terracina and Desenzano (or any other adorable Italian city) had got together and created their own little love child. You had the narrow streets, the colourful buildings, beautiful beaches, that calmness, the delicious Italian food and the kindness of all the locals. If anybody out there is looking for a great vacation destination without any "musts" or "shoulds" this is a place to put on top of your list. I would love to go back, not only to Bastia but to other parts of the island as well. Renting a car and being able to see more of the island is what I'm going to do next time I come here (and yes, there's most definitely going to be a next time).

I was so happy to lay on a beach, play around in the ocean, eat fresh strawberries, wander the beautiful streets of Bastia, eat enormous amounts of ice cream and get the chance to hang out with some awesome people. I couldn't have asked for anything more!
