After we said goodbye to our last very kind host and the Atlantic we drove the whole day from Anglet (near Biarritz) to Paris for our last stop.

And now we are looking forward to experience the city of love tomorrow๐Ÿ—ผ ~J

After a lazy day at the beach we took a little walk and drove to our hosts for the next three nights! They have a really cool house and it's easy to reach the beach! ๐Ÿ˜ I burned my whole back even tho I put sun cream on it really often... Already excited when it really starts to hurt ๐Ÿ˜’๐Ÿ˜” ~A
A little time out and relaxing at the beach of Biarritz. Finally it's warm enough to call it a sunny day. The ocean shows many high waves and is totally refreshing. The lifeguards remind us of the movie "Baywatch" :) ~J

We stayed in Marseille for a little time before we made our way towards Marignane. The stupid GPS-System told us to go through some tunnels that we didn't actually wanted to and then needed to pay about 2,80โ‚ฌ... well at some point we finally arrived at our new home for the next night. ~A
