... 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.
