It´s a fantastic beginning of the winter her in north Germany. Snow and ice. Here are some impressions:
On our trip on the shores of Corsika island in France we visited the Iles de Sanguinaires.
A beautiful group of rocky islands that are crested with old genuvesian towers and new lighthouses.
The tower of the big Ilsands that is still in use.
On our journey to Corsika we needed to stay one day in Livorno, an Italian
harbour town, because of a lack of Ferries. So we had time to explore the maritime history of the city a little and came across the lighthouse which was build 1304, then destroyed in the second world war. Rebuilt in 1956 to match the old tower it´s white Light can reach 24 miles out into the sea nowadays. In the harbour we have seen the traditional Sailing Ship Amrigo
Vespucci, an amazing craft.
