Enjoyable Hell - GR20 in Corsica - Part 2 of 3

This is part two of the GR20 expedition in the summer of 2017. I would kindly advise you to read part one first unless already done so and you still need to wait a little for part three to be published. Is this finally the episode where the tingling sensation is upon us and we need to assume a brace position with our walking poles as an extra lightning rods? At least a proper storm was expected in the afternoon of day number three. Well beyond midnight, when I was answering the call of the nature the sky was still cloudless and littered with millions of stars. Night sky is always truly spectacular when hiking in the mountains.

Alleviated Hell - GR20 in Corsica - Part 1 of 3

Instead of reading this three part blog entry, you may want to directly google the words "my holiday hell" and find relatively accurate description of just how enjoyable of an experience it is to hike through GR20-footpath across island of Corsica. I can only share half of the fun in my blog as we decided against the whole 180 kilometer coast to coast trek, but opted for the alpine northern half of what has been dubbed as the toughest trail in Europe.
