THE SOUTH OF FRANCE
I never imagined I would have moved all the way to Australia to get a job that made me travel all the way back to France on a boat!
Pullling over into French port was for sure my biggest highlight. I didn't grow up on the water, we rarely spent time on boats with my parents so coming via the water to all the cities and villages of the south of France was an absolute thrill.
Marseille wow! Cassis, Toulon, Nice, Cannes, St Tropez, Monaco wow wow wow!! Amazing! So much fun to be sitting amongst the biggest private yachts ever made. Mind blowing. Life was so easy, all the docks are right in the middle of the old town usually so markets, boulangerie, flower shop where just a minute walk away.
As an internationale boat rule, you must have the name of your boat as well as the provenance, it's basically the city you are registered from. So in very large letters on the back garage door we use to have MASTEKA sydney so people would ask everyday if really Sydney was the one in Australia!! Most couldn't believe it.
South of France is actually so beautiful and so windy in Summer from lunch time onwards!
