Now everyone is blogging about our trip to France to visit Claudie and Pierre and get together with our blogger friends and it is so much time reliving the memories. While reading about the first day I got the idea to tell you all about what we did while we waited for Mrs. Lifecruiser and her husband to arrive.
RennyBA and I arrived in Marseille the day before we were due at Claudie’s and met up with TorAa and Anna who had driven their car through Europe this far. There were some events at the hotel which we will keep secret (no no keep your mind out of the gutter…it had something to do with getting us a taxi hahaha) but all in all a fine evening with a welcoming Rosè wine and Anna proclaiming that now that we had arrived the real fun could start!
The next day we had some hours after our hotel breakfast to wait for the Lifecruisers to arrive. Since Tor knows the area he took us to visit a charming town, Aix-en-Provence which is about 30 km from Marseille.
A charming town this was our first real taste of Provence. The town is known for its warm spring and many fountains.
The shopping wasn’t half bad either. There were plenty of typical french items to buy.
Fashion too of course!
And we also visited our first Creperie, although I chose the salmon tartar…I soon learned to love the French Crepes!
More fun to come from our lovely vacation with good friends! Stay tuned!
