Cassis – Always Different

It’s the soft season, mid Spring, the best time for travel. My favorite nearby neighbor town is picturesque Cassis, it takes only thirty minutes by train or bus and you’re there, amidst mountains, vineyards, a little park, a little harbor, attractive beaches and marvellous views.

Same place but always different. I feel inspired after seeing some nearby vineyards. At the morning market people are easy going. No sense of rush, even when queuing up at the bakery to get your fresh panini and a cup of French dark roast coffee, people keep smiling.

One can do a lot in Cassis in just a day as the town is small and all attractive sites are in and around it. The bakery is at the corner of the harbor, at the harbor site you find the first beaches, the nearest vineyards are walking distance from the center. It’s a dream town.

With a clear blue sky and the sun at Zenith, the next season can be felt. A troubadour with guitar sings with full heart his love for Cassis, the dream town of his life. A young guitarist sits opposite him, is fascinated and interested to learn from this man who radiates contentment.
