Before arriving at our final destination (Lacoste, France), we had to make a stopover in Marseille. Now, Marseille isn’t necessarily one of those cities you add to your bucket list but wow – Marseille is unbelievably gorgeous!

There’s a metropolitan buzz mixed with hip hop and fashion culture (I was taken aback by how trendy most of the locals were) and fun fact; it’s the second biggest city in France.

Then there’s the view! Something about bodies of water next to hills or mountains are just breathtaking. We stayed at the Pullman Marseille Palm Beach Hotel, and this is where we got to experience the beauty that is Marseille.

We only had less than 48 hours so we didn’t get to explore the city as much as we wanted to but strolling and popping in out and of restaurants was the main agenda.

So, the biggest lesson I learned here? Explore & stray away from the typical, cliche cities. The world is gorgeous.
