Welcome to first of three posts inspired by our journey trough one of the worst heat waves this summer without air condition.
First couple of days we spent mostly on the road. All-night drive thru Italy rewarded us with magic morning views of the French Riviera. As heat went up, we parked in Marseille city centre, grab a beer and jumped on a tiny tourist train to climb to a hill on top of the city. There we visited Basilique Notre-Dame de la Garde, a fascinating church with a 10meter high golden statue of Mary holding Jesus on top. In the afternoon we started to get high. Very high.
