The Beginning……..

My pipe dream? Corsica!

‘Where’s that?’ everyone asks me.

I am not going to tell you, I’m going to show you. Follow me and share my version of what this beautiful island promises to offer……let’s see if she’s true to her promise!

Why Corsica? I struggle with short stories, but let me give it a crack. In a nutshell? Some people have a bad day…..the ones you want to wipe from your memory. 2011 for me was a bad year. After losing my ‘surrogate son’ to suicide, I was dealt another blow…..my Dad was diagnosed with cancer. The decision to pack up my life and head home to spend time was easy, it just meant a little ‘to and fro-ing’ to make the move. In December 2011 on a flight from Hedland to Perth I buried myself in the words of an in flight Voyeur magazine. Flicking mindlessly through the pages at first, I was drawn to an article that promised a glimpse of a simpler, yet more exotic life…….it promised Corsica.

This article resonated with me so soundly, the words have echoed in my head over the years and I have vowed to visit. In an attempt to cut this long story short, I had all but given up on my dream after a sour relationship left me mentally, physically, emotionally and financially shattered. I declared bankruptcy and shelved my dream.

My kids, God bless their cotton socks, were having none of that. As well as organising a surprise 50th, they put together some funds to kick start my journey.

After moving back North and reassessing my life, I bit the bullet and started making plans.

Now, months later, I am sitting at Brisbane airport waiting for my flight to Cairns-the third leg of this journey.

Come with me and share this experience!!!!!!
