なんかぶらさがっとるんとちゃうか?

Not far off the Pacific coast in the Costa Rican jungle, a community has taken to the trees to craft a new, sustainable life off the grid and away from urbanity. Finca Bellavista is a community of long-term residents and travel guests housed in a network of tree houses built right into the rain forest canopy.

3年前にマルセイユに滞在した際にカシスに足を伸ばしたが、その日はあいにくの曇り日で視界もあまり良くなかった。今回のアマルフィ滞在後、車でトゥールーズに戻る際にマルセイユ近辺に一泊するのを楽しみにしていたのだが、その前の経由地であるフィレンツェからの距離が長くなり過ぎてしまうため手前のカンヌに一泊することにし、お気に入りのマルセイユ周辺は高速道路で素通りするだけだった。天気も良かったのでカンヌではなく、カシスのこの宿に泊まることができたらずっと良かったことだろう Continue Reading
