One Hotel Room at a Time.
It is time to head towards our next destination of La Ciotat, which is a seaside resort that is situated between
and Provence , 20 minutes far from Marseille and Côte d’Azur . For the Queenslanders out there, the town has the
feel of equal parts Toulon and Redcliffe. Bribie Island
Le Marina B, our hotel, was a cinema-themed, located right on the beach. Our room featured a private terrace with panoramic sea views; you can even sit on the loo and look at the yachts in the water. At first we did not understand the cinema theme and question the artwork on the walls, but then I found out Le Marina B is housed in the building that belonged to the inventors of cinema, the Brothers of Light. OK, so now I understand why Whoppie Goldberg was hanging above our bed.
Lugging all of our stuff up narrow winding stairs exhausts us, but also makes us hungry, so we set off for food. Very soon the town is even more similar to Bribie. It was only , but all of the restaurants and bars on the beach front were closed. All bar for a Chinese restaurant run by a French Vietnamese family. I am very spoilt when it comes to amazing Chinese food with Justin’s family all being superb cooks. Unfortunately, it soon became apparent that was one of the worse Chinese meals that either Justin or I had eaten. Chicken so dry we were gagging to swallow.
