When I was writing my first book AUTOHIGHOGRAPHY (named incidentally, long before Morrissey brought his book out as I had the idea in my late teens after reading The Great Beast by John Symonds about the Life of Aleister Crowley, published in the early 1970s, although admittedly Mr M has sold shed loads more copies than I have :o( , I gathered together all my photographs from backpacking trips to use as a memory aid. The walk across the mountains of Corsica in the burning heat of a Mediterranean mid summer is described in the second last chapter of this book so here are the photos to go with it. We travelled into Nice airport then had a walk of a few miles to reach our hotel for the night before getting the boat across the Med to the island of Corsica. In the photo above there is a lovely little path off to the right that runs parallel to the busy road, weaving between the palm trees, so I opted for following that. Not only was it in the shade it was full of bird and insect life.
