Day in Marseille

We went and had a day in Marseille and jumped on 2 wee tourist trains...

Here I am dancing up at the Notre Dame

Mum and I overlooking Chateau d'if

This is what the trains were like, the people waiting would hardly give you 1cm of space to get off as they were PUSHING their way into your seat!!!

By the time the second train came around I was a bit tired so lay down for half of that one...

Day in Avignon

Shaun had a day off today, so we took a trip to Avignon. 40mins from us, but we have never really explored it properly. It was a fantasitc day for it, a bit windy which made it sooooo nice!!

Palais des Papes - Popes ruling in the 14th century built this grand, fortress-like palace.

After nearly 2 years of me (Heidi) refusing to seem like a 'tourist' we are now doing all the 'touristie' things!!! We jumped on the 'petit train' for a 40min tour of Avignon!! Well worth it and we will be doing this at EVERY city now!!!

Shaun and Maia on the train - She just LOVED it and was waving to everybody like she was the Queen!!

We sat down at a restaurant up at the Rocher des Doms and it was right beside a wee pond with ducks so Maia had a ball. We gave her some bread and she was away. She also loved giving the bread to the wee boy beside her so he could also feed the ducks. Everytime she gave him the bread he said "Merci" and she would turn around to us and say "Haha, he just said Merci to me". it was really cute - but I thikn the wee boy thought she was a bit of a nut!!!

Nothing like a foot spa to end a long day!!!

Maia is now at an age that we CAN'T go past a merry-go-round without her going on it!!!
