More Marseille — Travel Log, Day 9

I spent my last day in Mar­seille see­ing Notre-Dame de la Garde which sits on the top of the high­est hill around and had some ter­rific views of the city. To get up there, my brother and I walked up some pretty steep, San Francisco-like streets. The tower of Notre-Dame de la Garde is capped…

Marseille Graffiti — Travel Log, Day 8

Yes­ter­day the plan was to see a few muse­ums and then head out to Olympique de Mar­seille to watch the match against Brest. For some rea­son the two muse­ums I wanted to catch weren’t open despite their hours clearly stat­ing that they were. Instead I walked around and snapped some pho­tos of the graf­fiti stores put…

Château d’If & Frioul Islands — Travel Log, Day 7

Spent most of yes­ter­day and today trav­el­ing from San Sebastián to Mar­seille. Yes­ter­day I took a bus to Bil­bao and vis­ited the Guggen­heim there. Really cool build­ing with an under­whelm­ing per­ma­nent col­lec­tion. Hand­ily they had a vis­it­ing col­lec­tion of post-war mod­ern art which was terrific.

Today I got up bright and early at 5:30am to catch my 7am flight to Mar­seille. Walked all around this after­noon and now am head­ing out to din­ner in a bit. Plus, check out my view. :)
