New Hotel of Marseille - Le Pharo
Travel Blogs from Marseille
... second week of May so we are being given a lot of free time to do some traveling which is perfect!
I will be leaving for Morocco this Wednesday the 26th and will be returning to Marseille on the 10th of March. The part I’m most excited for is the camel ride we have scheduled! Expect an entry and many pictures when I return!
This last week and a half has been so much fun! The few days
after my first post, it rained like crazy here and my friends and I were going
a little bit crazy because we wanted to explore but couldn’t do much outside
with the rain. During the last day of the several days of rain, we all braved
the rain and decided to walk down the little side streets by the port and check
out the little markets. We found ...
... way around the Port to have a glance at the Cathedral de Major, and the Jardin du Pharo on the opposite bank that was built by Napoleon. Caught the free boat that crosses the port, to get back to the van and to see it from the water.
Drove to Arles to park up for the night relaxing next to river Rhone, sharing the spot with 9 other campers. ...
Had a lazy morning soaking up the sun. decided to spoil our selves and enjoy some vegemite and cheese toasties for brunch. This may seem basic but when living on a travelling budget this becomes luxury! Realising we were right on a coastal point with ocean either side of us, we went for a stroll around the area. By the time we took off it was mid afternoon, drove further along the coast before parking up for the night in Gemenos.
Another long day traveling. Left Thorame just before mid-day by the time we got everything packed up. Not really enough time to do much on the way back to Marseille, especially as lots of things close between 12 and 2 pm. Negotiated our way back to the airport and got checked through to Singapore via Frankfurt.
