... Marseille is fantastic for scuba diving, so I have a new bucket list item!
Another interesting experience was my transportation to and from Marseille – Blablacar! Blablacar is a kind of ride sharing (covoiturage). It’s different from Uber and Lyft because you’re not hiring a driver, just joining one. A person driving somewhere can post his trip route, and others can sign up to join him/her for the drive.

... little part
that I would have liked to spend more time in as well, called Le Panier, I’m so

I was also motivated by the prospect of stopping ...

The first calanque was big and very beautiful but had quite a few boats anchored within it. Would have been nice if the authorities had preserved the environment and not allowed boats in that area. We continued onto the next calanque which was much smaller in comparison and had a beach. By now we were ...
