If you have never been to Chamonix, drop what you are doing right now and book the next flight out. If I could live in this charming alps town in France I would in a heart beat. Hiking in the summer months, skiing in the winter and coming home to eat things cover in hot cheese, can you possibly ask for anything more in life?? Chamonix was a perfect break from our few days in the hustling and bustling city of Paris. Although I would be perfectly happy sitting on a porch eating cheese, cured meats, and sipping wine while peacefully gazing at the mountains and glaciers there are some pretty great things to do Chamonix.
During our travels we tend to stay in a lot of AirBnB rentals. This is not the only way we have booked stays, hostels, hotels, sleeper trains and more are all options for choosing a place to sleep at night. But with AirBnb and another home rentals we have found some gems making our trip even more memorable, even staying on a boat in Paris! The ease of having all of our places booked through the same site makes communication easier and we have always had an enjoyable experience. While searching where to stay we always have had some things we consider each time.
In the summer of 2016 we had tickets to one of the Euro Cup games. Our game was set in Marseille, France and we got to watch England vs Russia. It was our first out of country soccer game and it was a blast. Definitely an unforgettable experience. We knew we would be in Marseille for a few days and wanted to see some of the best sites. A friend pointed us in the direction of the Calanques National Park. This park spreads pretty wide across the coast but is an approximate 45 minute drive from the city center of Marseille.
