Le Comte…

Day 506:

“Life is a storm, my young friend. You will bask in the sunlight one moment, be shattered on the rocks the next. What makes you a man is what you do when that storm comes.” -Edmond Dantès

When I woke up this morning, I opened google maps to see exactly where I was and soon realized that we were only a few hours from the city of Marseille, the setting for one of my favorite novels. I’ve always dreamed about visiting Château d’If and you can just imagine my joy when I learned this. So that’s what we planned for today.

But first, time to fuel up on some instant tsukemen that I brought with me. Yes, I came prepared.

Did you really think I could go this whole trip without some kind of ramen/tsukemen?

Ahhh…Shimadaya is my favorite brand of instant nama ramen. They’ve never done me wrong.

I’m so glad I brought this with me.

Anyway, off to Marseille!

When we arrived almost every restaurant was closed except for this one. She got the salmon.

I got the veal.

And then some macarons.

Unfortunately, the Château d’If was closed to the public today so I could only see it from afar. That’s okay, at least I can still say I’ve seen it.

Traffic in Marseille was something. I’m definitely not a fan of roundabouts in big cities. haha. But we made it back in time for some Andouillette.

à bientôt…

  1. Wow… I read your blog for a while now, just skipped the last few days, and realize only now you came in Europe.
    As I live in Geneva and am dying to learn to make true ramen, I would have tried to convince you to stay and set up a “ramen cooking 101” seminar ahahah 🙂
    Enjoy your French stay, and who knows, you'll come up with an awesome “bouillabaisse ramen” recipe ^__^
