Bonjour, Hart Beat! Comment allez-vous? Bienvenue sur le blog, en français! … Just kidding! Lucky you, I didn’t major in French and will not be writing this blog to you in said language. Today is Bastille Day and because of that I thought that I would share with you my most recent Instacrush.
This story comes with a bit of a backstory so bear with me. The summer right after Carolyn and I graduated from Bates we took a once in a lifetime trip together through Europe. I chronicled the whole thing here on the blog and you can read each installment here (Berlin, Nuremberg, Munich, Salzburg, Luzern, Interlaken, Montreux, Nice, Marseilles, and different parts of Spain.)
I haven’t been back to France since that trip and I still think about southern France (specifically) often. Carolyn and I had such a blast taking the train from oceanside town to oceanside town and Marseilles was one of our favorites.
Not long ago I found out that the city of Marseille has an official Instagram account called @choosemarseille. It’s awesome. It does a great job of both representing the beauty of the city AND making me want to buy a plane ticket right now so I can go to la plage. So on this dreary New York day, here’s a little French celebration and wanderlust for your afternoon.
