Last day in Marsaille

sunny 32 °C

Well 1,463 photos later, I have reached my last day in Marseille. I am leaving at 5 am tomorrow morning to get the high speed train to the airport then I'm leaving France.
The first two photos are for my apartment window.0765F464C7D5958C14386313CFF38ED9.jpeg076A19BEFFABE17AE25EFE454C48574D.jpeg
I walked about 30 minutes to a small fishing village (Vallon des Auffes) this morning and the sea was absolutely stunning !

Hot Marsaille

sunny 32 °C

Well, I hate to say it, but the in excess of D7588EB7ECB2A29AED4A02A148065610.jpeg180_D7455E79909ACBAB097436A2C177FD5C.jpegD739B70FC0751121C0BBC534A337F161.jpegD730CB58F9CBA6B68E02D91F8F9510BF.jpegD7200F76E5305057175DF9756A3E8AE8.jpegD70E2BAAB589055E83068482044CF74F.jpegD6EB06F09ED1E61247E7D9017022A2C6.jpegD6ADCCF4CA8CFB4B189FBFF7333745B4.jpegD69CDBE00D582D97B699102883205896.jpeg90_D698115AC7A430FDA4EB924A2346DADA.jpegEA714303F6043DDE01D614DCC40400AB.jpegEA6C9A44EB672F7543F0B7DA79C1230C.jpeg30 degree temperatures is getting to me! 32 degrees again today, and as I'm out in it and walking around, I'm starting to get weary and a bit worn out. I've got to be careful what I say, as on Wednesday I will be back in Auckland!!!
I've decided to theme this lot of photos around two wheels. Lots and lots of scooters, and some very fancy and large capacity. Some nice exotic machines and a few of the coolest dudes ride triumphs! They have a very cool bike hire system, where you can ride bikes for 30 minutes free of charge, then it's 1 euro for every hour. You just ride the bike to where you want to go, then park the bike in special racks located frequently around the city. Very cool!

Marseille

sunny 31 °C

I have been exploring Marseille a little. First the Old Port (which is pretty modern!) and then one of the older parts of town, the Panier. This area is having a resurgence and is becoming very arty now.
Oh, and I did a little retail therapy, I found my favourite.... H & M!!!

Marseille

sunny 29 °C

I took the fast train to Marsaille.
The first two photographs are views from St Charles Train Station. 27 degrees but seemed way hotter. So hot I needed to buy a hat (now I must look the real French gentleman, as all the shop people just babble on at me in French!)5FAA7323D653398FC9B3E93A0FBFF99B.jpeg5F921992C64D84225138A036E4177729.jpeg5FAEDCE6A1719F4C006CEBDC4E0B1F4F.jpeg602CFF340BFE771FD6328770337FA19E.jpeg
Marsaille seems soooo different from Paris! Almost like another country.

well I am up to my last day in Paris! In the last couple of days I have visited the Rodin Museum, had an up close look at the Eiffel Tower on my first rainy day in Paris, ran into a very loud Samba parade and accidentally stumbled across the palatial Luxembourge Gardens. I have taken over 960 photos so far, and a handful of them, I deem as being pretty damn good!
I am boarding the high speed train first thing tomorrow morning and heading to Marsaille. not sure what to expect, as Paris has surprised me ( in mostly good ways ;-) )
