Bonjour France

It's time to wake up and enjoy the most beautiful French sunrise from the balcony of our cabin. We can't linger too long, got to get showered and dressed so that we can go for breakfast and head off to our tour of the beautiful Toulon (Provence).

Breakfast at the Windjammer on the ship is bliss, the buffet is so tempting, so many choices, I want to try everything. There is a variety of fruit, yoghurts, cereals, different types of bread, croissants, homemade omelettes, scrambled egg, sausages etc. I must not forget that I'm gluten and wheat intolerant. Luckily there are so many options available, so it's not that difficult for me! I so wish I could have a chocolate croissant though.

 Okay, now that our tummies are full, we're off to meet the tour guide to enjoy the beauty of France. I never leave home without my high heel shoes, luckily for me I found an awesome pair of the most comfortable platform shoes I could walk for miles in! Lots of walking in Europe, no wonder the women are in such great shape.

After a long drive we stopped at the jet-setting crowd of Saint Tropez, this was originally just a simple fishing village, but now is undeniably one of the best known resorts of Europe and a crossroads where journalists, photographers, writers, artists and celebrities all meet. Saint Tropez is the shinning pearl of the French Riviera for its boutiques, fancy restaurants and luxury beaches.

Okay I'm not shy to make a fool of myself - This is me yet again, acting silly

One of the shops I thought was really pretty - Saint Tropez

The pasties and baguettes looked so delicious and I was really jealous as Darren scoffed a pasty. How I wish I could have one, oh well at least I could have ice-cream, and I must say...the best ice-cream I've ever tasted, I'm not sure if it was the flavour that we chose that made it incredibly delicious, but it was worth every calorie.

Darren and I had lunch at one of the restaurants, really expensive when you're paying in rands, but we had a really fantastic time eating lunch and watching the yachts sailing by.

On our way back to the ship, the tour guide took us to the charming Port Grimaud, also known as the little Venice of France. It was such a pretty site.

After a fabulous tour, we had to make our way back to the ship. Next on the agenda was the Captains Dinner, formal attire was required. So we showered and got dressed up and headed off to dinner.

The dress I'm wearing is a gift from my sister Shere
 The dining room looked absolutely stunning. I couldn't count all the chandeliers, we were spoilt. The food was incredible.

Darren and I were way ahead of ourselves, after a long day, we still booked a show on board the ship and headed there straight after dinner. We wanted to make the best of our trip. The ship has non-stop entertainment.

It was an amazing day, we were so exhausted and looked forward to some shut eye.

This all felt like a dream! We will cherish this for many years to come.

Next.... Nice, Monaco
