Bare Shoulders on La Porquerollos Island (in the French Riviera)

La Porquerollos is an island off of the city of Hyères in the French Riviera. The island gem is 4 miles long, less than 2 miles wide and simply charming. Although I’ve been to Marseille, this was my first visit to the French Riviera and we were told that La Porquerollos was not to be missed.

A helping of cool gelato and then a visit to more one of several bike stands for a bike ride to the beach.

Apparently, I need to go bike riding more often because a few dusty small hills were enough to slow me down more than once.

The view was totally worth the effort and the snake that I saw slithering by while on the ride.  EEK!

What a short and sweet day trip that was to Porquerolles. Despite extremist efforts to thwart travel, “We travel not to escape life but so that life doesn’t escape us”.
