Mountains at Figaro airport

GR20 Corsica pre-hike Day 1

Arrived at Figari Airport after 26 hours on airplanes or in airports. Service on Dutch KHL airlines was fantastic, gives a whole new meaning to "going Dutch". Caught a glimpse of the future as we flew along Corsica and the high jagged mountains covered with clouds.
Chose to rent a car at the airport, as the taxi fee for a 25km ride to town is ~75 Eurosport. Streets in Porto Vecchio are about 10cm wider than our tiny rental car, with cars parked on both sides, rear view mirrors turned inwards.
A glass of wine by the pool, then we called it a day.
