“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.
