Corsica - Day 1
Monday afternoon I graduated. Wednesday morning my alarm went off at 4:15 to leave towards Schiphol airport. I was looking forward to the trip, but also could have used a break from all the excitement. My mom brought me to the train station from which I travelled to Amsterdam. During my flights to Iceland I had experienced about every type of trouble, but this time all went smooth. I still had to wait 1,5 hours. The flight was delayed by 15 minutes but fortunately not cancelled. Upon arriving in Lyon in France I took a second flight to Ajaccio in Corsica. The airport there was really small, but there was a bus driving to the city center.

After all the problems I had in Iceland I hadn't brought my petrol stove on the plane, but the disadvantage was that I now needed to buy a gas canister somewhere. After searching literally every store in Ajaccio I eventually found them in a construction market. Now I had everything I needed, I just needed to reach the start of the GR20 route. The bus driving there only went once a day and had left 55 minutes ago. I knew that was the case, but simply couldn't leave without a gas canister. I found a campsite on top of a hill. After a shower I went to bed early. Tomorrow I would have to wake up early to catch the bus.
