About the changing world all around us

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 Rosรจ 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.

And we also visited our first Creperie, although I chose the salmon tartar…I soon learned to love the French Crepes!

  11. It’s nice that finally you were able to see something of the south of Europe and not only the cold Norway up there ! I thought Rennie and you knew the Lifecruisers quite well from Anna’s birthday party, if I remember. I just came back from the English coast and had a wonderful time and weather.

  12. BTW I see your blog became a discussion forum. I never come back once I have commented.

  13. it looks and sounds like it was a perfectly lovely time.

  14. I like Aix- En-Provence because it is a studiens’ town and I like it’s atmoshere with always people at anytime of the day and night and Art is really pregnant here!
    I went for my studies sometimes here particulary at the bibliotheque when I did my Master in Law to prepare my exams.
