Well I wasn't going to post today as it was fairly uneventful. Slept in and biked down to Prado beach to spend our last day. Clearly I cant be trusted in the Mediterranean sun or I just dont know how to apply sunscreen cause I ended up a lobster all said and done after 3… Continue reading Bike biffing in Marseille, France
Marseille at Sunset
Good evening folks. Well, evening for us, afternoon for most of you back home. Not a whole lot to update on today as it was a pretty mellow one for us. Mark and I headed down on the bikes to check out Mucem. A fairly new museum that lies tucked into the port of Marseille… Continue reading Marseille at Sunset
Just Food and Jackets…Marseille
So, I know I said the other day was one of my favourite days, well today topped that by quite a bit. There wasn't a cloud in the sky and it was easily 25 degrees. Stinking hot and a perfect day to go hike the National Park. Super easy to get there by bus and… Continue reading Just Food and Jackets…Marseille
Bonjour mes amis, Marseille

This is how we spent our last couple of days and let me tell you, after clouds and rain in the UK it has been a little slice of heaven. Yesterday we decided to check out the rental… Continue reading France is better by bike
Versailles Via Audi….NBD – Paris
Today started like any other day. We hopped in an Audi and got dropped off to tour the Palace of Versailles. Pretty standard stuff for a day in Paris...no big deal. Just kidding. Huge deal! It was pretty sweet. The Airbnb we are staying at is just outside of the main city like I've said… Continue reading Versailles Via Audi….NBD – Paris
Zaco to Melon, Paris Adventures
Wow, we sure butcher the French language and I'm not going to lie -- its fun. I'm pretty sure its not pronounced zaco to melon but we had a lot of laughs saying this today when we were catching the zaco train to Melun. Grow up, right? Never. Today was a pretty darn good day.… Continue reading Zaco to Melon, Paris Adventures
Paris hates us – Parlez Vous Anglais?
I haven't said this enough already -- good lord. Paris, where no one wants to help or talk to you! Always so much fun. I think they have one of the most intricate subway and bus systems I have ever seen. Add in the language barrier and it can get pretty difficult. We are staying… Continue reading Paris hates us – Parlez Vous Anglais?
