Day 8, Eurotrip 2009

21 05 2009

8th April, 2009, on the coastal route into Marseille.
We had been on the road for close to 5 hours, headed for this coastal paradise. A pretty stretch through winding hills later, we found our GPS locating our car at the edge of the second largest city in France, where we were welcomed by the surveyors of the sea.
The entire stretch along the harbour played host to the yacht’s of the Rich and Famous, in the thousands. For us backpackers with “Leisure” meaning nothing more than a cup of coffee in the morning, the endless array of Yacht’s almost seemed daunting.
Our Eurotrip itinerary allowed us just the one night in this maritime city. We had to leave a lot unexplored. At the risk of being termed banal, ‘Ain’t it all about the drive?!’.
