    Acrobranch in Cormatin, France

    September 15 in France

    Today we went to an aerial park and went flying through the trees on zip lines and climbing through large tunnels. Geoff Chloë and our friend Yohann (Who also went around the world on his bike with his partner Clara) went on the adult course and Malcolm Dale and Lara went on the kids course. There were 5 levels of courses, yellow (test), green (easy), blue(medium), red(hard) and black(extreme)! Yohann Geoff and Chloë did part of the adult black and Chloë also did the kids black! Malcolm did the kids black 3 times! Talk to you soon,
    Cheers Malcolm

    Sur le Pont d'Avignon

    October 17 in France

    In Avignon, we found a beautiful garden inside the medieval walls of the city, and Chloë and I danced and sang on the Avignon bridge (much to her hidden delight which looked a lot like embarrassment...). In fact, the original 16th century tune is quite different than the one we learn in Canada as children, but we stuck to our own version. We also came across a teenaged basketball tournament in front of the Palais des Papes, in the center of town. I really do love how Europe uses its public spaces!Read more

    October 11 in France

    Was versteckt sich in dem Namen 😄😊 eine Stadt mit vielen Gesichtern, viel Armut und auch Kriminalität, aber mit einer wunderschönen Altstadt und tollen Gassen.

    Am Abend gab es noch ein Festival vor unserem Schiff, mega schön. Leider hat der Kapitän aufgrund der älteren Gäste an Bord entschieden früher als geplant anzulegen 🙄 nur leider haben nicht alle Gäste die Durchsage am Mittag gehört und waren nicht pünktlich auf dem Schiff. Zum Glück waren die telefonisch erreichbar. Ansonsten hätten wir abgelegt und die Gäste wären mit dem Tender Boot nach gekommen. Da alle Crew und Hafenabreiter bereit zum ablegen waren.Read more

    France - Nice - day 1

    September 16 in France

    France - I like you already! I am so funny. I choose my day of arrival in Nice the day of the Iron Man (right on my street). It's packed with people practicing at its only 9am! 🤣

    Je suis arrivee tres tot a mon hotel et la dame m'a toute suite invitee pour un cafe et dejeuner! Trop chouette ici! 😍

  • Day2

    Arles is a World Heritage city with a lot of Roman remains, namely a small colosseum and an amphitheater. The city is on the left bank of the river Rhône and there is a long promenade alongside. It was nice to eat in a small creperie in the city centre, feeling the flavour of ripe tomato, chèvre cheese and Provence olive oil to relax for a while. The day is beautiful and it’s difficult to see the autumn coming...
    Avignon, the city of the Popes, reminds me immensely of Évora. The city wall is huge and the old city spreads inside. From the Palais des Papes and the cathedral to its side to the bridge of Avignon - only half, by the way - all is very beautiful and well preserved. The view from the gardens is amazing.
    We end up the day in Aix-en-Provence. Maybe because my expectations were high the feeling of delusion also strikes me. The whole city is under construction and it is not so nice as I expected. Nevertheless, the city centre is pleasant enough to have dinner and go back to the country house we stayed in to spend the night.

    October 7 in France

    Marseille is wonderful! We spent most of our time around the Vieux Port. The MuCem, the Chateâu d’If, the Fort de Saint Jean and the Cathedral are all around and it is amazing to feel the perfect combination of modern and old buildings, the cruise boats in the big harbour and all the fancy surroundings with expensive shops and restaurants to receive the hundreds of tourists that leave the cruises everyday.
    As for us, we preferred going to the old harbour where seafood restaurants are lined and we could taste a specialty that seems awkward but it definitely works: fried mussels with french fries... delicious! Also a salad with cheese and meat that seems funny at first but is totally delish! And the rest of the afternoon, supposedly to know a bit more about the city, was to rush into nice places when the thunderstorm decided to play some tricks on us. A nice bar for a coffee, a réplica of the Galleries Lafayette, a nice biscuit shop and, last but not least, a soap shop to buy the famous Soap of Marseille! After all we really ended up soaked by the late afternoon rain before going to the airport... loved it all anyway!

    September 19 in France

    So I started the day with the intention of going to Cannes. (Where the famous music festival takes place). Once there I didn't really love the place. It's full of luxury boutiques: Gucci, Prada, etc. and the beach is not that fantastic. So I hopped back on the train to head to St-Raphael. Oh yes. I need to mention that the train broke down again. And we needed to wait an hour for it to be repaired. Why are these trains always breaking when I take them?

    Anywho, this village is super adorable and the hotel I got is gorgeous. Since I am staying with a friend's mom for a few days over the weekend I can splurge on nice hotels for the next 3 nights right! Sylviane put me in contact with her friends mom who lives near Marseille (Aix de provence) so she offered me a room for the weekend since I will be in the area. Yay! :-)

    Again today was the beach (I am getting so brown) and visiting the town. This place is where the richs come. The yatchs here are unreal...

    P.s. Since I have been seeing at least 1 Pomeranian per day since I've been here I started taking pictures of the daily Pom to send to my mom. Thought ide share this one as it looks like Misty.

    14 days until I see you misty ❤
