Urban Exploration - Villefranche sur Mer

One of the pleasures of being in a foreign place is getting lost on purpose.

And while I usually get lost alone (see entries on Hong Kong, Shanghai and Jerusalem), for this trip, I was very lucky to be in the company of my two cousins and partners-in-crime, Clark and Argee. For once, there could actually be a picture of me (hell-yeah!), instead of just the scenery.

After the day-trip to Monaco, we had about four hours to kill before the cruise ship was to depart.  And while everyone else was already on board the ship (sleeping/eating/gambling/enjoying the theatrical production of Grease), Argee and I decided to explore Villefranche a bit longer.


Villefranche sur Mer

* My partner in crime, Argee, trying his best to look like one of the locals.. with his huge camera bag, US marine hat and Back to the Future sneakers.


Villefranche sur Mer

* Climbing up the steep, slippery and wet steps to the town church….

* … to get a breathtaking view… of the blonde at the back.

* Totally awesome shirts and pairs of pants.. if only we could reach them.

* Me trying to be all “Ghost Protocol"-ish in the back-alleys of Villefranche.

The sewers; because no Urban Exploration gig would be complete without a trip… to the sewers.



Cafe in Villefranche sur Mer

* Our awesome waiter/bartender/wifi password giver at L’X Cafe. Also known as the French Rastafarian Jason Segel.

* Enjoying the “not-too-shabby" cup of coffee and free wifi at L’X Cafe and Lounge Bar; although in truth, Argee was aiming for the chick at the back.


Villefranche sur Mer

* As**ns in Paris (well, way way south of Paris..)


Villefranche sur Mer

"Because you haven’t gallivanted, until you have gallivanted in sur Mer……" (said with snooty English voice)

* The absolutely beautiful and serene view of Villefranche.  Will definitely be back someday!
