Day 1 – Saturday 27th February
Has it been a year since I’ve been on a holiday abroad? Yes it has.
This was a very much needed break as my stress levels were increasing and I needed to get out of London.
I had booked this holiday to see the Travels Family in November of last year (that’s how much I needed this holiday!!) with easyJet. Book early and the tickets are cheaper. ^_^
It was a good start to the day, I slept early and woke up early. Was out the door by 10 am, and then waiting at London Bridge for my fast train to Gatwick Airport. I bought the cheap ticket for £7.90. :p
Got to Gatwick in a flash! And then realised I’m booking in, in a different part I’ve never been to before… It seems easyJet have let a lot of staff go, because now there are self check-ins, and it’s AMAZING! I really LOVE it!! >_<""
So checked in, passed security, didn’t get checked this time, I think I managed to add all my liquids stuff into the plastic bag, and I had no belt too (I was wearing a dress!). Sat down, and decided what to eat… I saw McDonald’s in the distance, but just before I entered I saw Wagamama’s… Uh oh… that spells trouble for me. So I went into Wagamama’s and had a bowl of spicy beef ramen. Heheh.
It was almost time to find the gate, so I went to the loo and the gate number appeared afterwards… Walked mega fast to the gate, but there were already people there! Faster than me!!! Wooow… Luckily when I was boarding they were asking for rows 1 – 10 and speedy boarding passengers to board first. Lucky!
I sat next to a French couple, and the flight was full… Unfortunately there were some people at the back who just could not stop talking during take off and landing. It was painful till I decided to listen to some music.
The flight was a short one thankfully, but when we got the off the plane, the weather in Marseille Provence Airport was extremely bizarre!! I always seem to bring the cold weather to France. 😦 It was windy and raining heavily. So sad… I battled through the weather and got to the other side quite quickly (better than last year). Then I had to take a taxi to Port-de-Bouc. The Travels family couldn’t pick me up this time… The taxi ride cost me €64 (~£50). Not bad!

Then it was now full steam ahead to our next destination, a theatre! Missy I and Miss S were performing in a dance show. Wow!!!
We arrived on time, and it was a first come first served seating… a little different to a normal show, I would say…
|Interval time with a pizza slice ^^|
It was an extremely entertaining show seeing locals perform and dance almost like some professionals. ^_^ Well done!! And well done to Missy I and Missy S. They did really well.
It was time to go back… an exhilirating start to my week’s holiday.

End of Day 1.
Day 2 – Sunday 28th Februrary
Sunday was spent with a short lie in for everyone.
Mr Travels said I should go to this fish market display which is about 4 stops away via train, but I missed the train and the buses!! Oh dear.
So I went back to the Travels family home, and stayed in for the rest of the day. It was cold and windy anyway… Where did the sun go?!!
