Living in Bordeaux at the time, I took a weekend off and flew to Marseille, I spent a day there and another full day about an hour and a bit east, in the small town of Cassis, where I then did a 3 hour hike through Les Calanques (beaches amongst the cliffs - no real translation) and I was absolutely stunned at the views. Here I am pictured standing above Calanque D'en Vau looking straight south off the coast of France towards Corsica and so on. It was an amazing day, and probably one of my most memorable days of my 1.5 year trip.

Readers' travel photos of the week gallery

After 16 months living in France, I made my way through the rest of Europe and eventually found myself in Slovenia. I spent 3 great days there and I had planned to move on to Milan, Italy via a 5am bus. After arriving in Venice as my stop over, there was a train strike, i missed 2 other trains and ended up spending 38euros more than I should have and eventually wound up in Verona in the evening. Upon arrival, I discovered this amazing sunset, I dumped my bags, threw my stuff in my locker and literally ran up the hill to this amazing spot and captured the photo of my trip, and here it is. Tramonto bello (beautiful sunset)!
