Summer-2019 Day 37

When you think you have seen it all!

Today was our day in Marseille.

Marseille is the second largest city in France.

As we got out the train station. I was in awe. The station seems to shadow the town. The NoteDame La Grande hovers over thing. It’s truly amazing!

For lunch, we tried a famous delicacy: liver burger.

It was close to eww!

They also have a famous graffiti street: Cours Julien.

Train back to Toulon was a breeze.

We ended our day with a trip to the beach.

Girls went off in the water, my boy did his daily run, and I curled up with a book.

On a side note, traveling in Europe requires extensive planning and reservations (lucky for me, all of that hard work was done by my hubby (he paid for all), and son (made train reservations)). It’s a good idea to get a Eurorail pass, but that only gives you a discount on the train fare. Train reservations and payment need to be done atleast a month or more in advance. We even got tickets to Versailles and The Louvre in advance (a week or so). For our daily commute, we mostly purchased a day pass. For Paris, we got day pass and then realized that four-five day pass would have worked,too! Hotels were expensive, but it added to our “points.” In the end, it’s all worth it!
