Stopover of a nicer life in Marseille

The episode in Marseille was a summary of coincidence, meetings, reunions and fixed moments embedded in the present! In short, everything we love at Hopineo!

86400-NOW

Mahery, Justine and Maud have met Gare Saint Charles in Marseille to start a sunny week end, a bit cliché we confess! The reason of our sweet reunion, 86400-Now, a conference about the combining of the awareness, the testimony of citizens who dared start their own business and transform simple idea into useful projects, or at least make them happy.

The room is packed of “1200 people according to the organizers, 1400 according to the policemen”, when Mahery and Justine took place on stage to talk about spreading seeds, while presenting Hopineo and sustainable tourism, materializing the nomad life with MonPtiPote and its workshops, in short an abstract of love and emotions to share with no moderation. Backstage it’s a bit dreadful but once on stage it’s more concrete. There are 3 questions which inspire and sound for the public ; a tawashi made by Justine in record time and a nice energy broadcast by uncontrollable fit of laughter with cult video of Monptipote!

Our Lady of the Guard (La Bonne Mère), go OM!

The pressure get back down, let’s Farniente and life in a cliché of Marseille, a trip embedded in our territory just the way we like in Hopineo!

  • Speaking with the accent, even between us « peu chère » under the dismayed stare of Our Lady of the Guard (language experience)
  • Getting in a bus with the tickets but no cash, not be able to pay, pretending to be some lout guys (thug life experience)
  • Enjoying the present in rocky inlets to take a nap under the sun (thoughtful experience)
  • Having an aperitif aboard of a sailing boat in the Old Harbor, savoring sardine and rosé (tasting experience)
  • Visiting the legendary Panier neighborhood, meeting locals and finding accommodation (resident experience)
  • Getting to know Marseille during a game night, a dream especially for Mahery! (sporting experience)
  • Sightseeing and taking selfies in the Old Harbor mirror… (selfie experience)
  • A getaway please by olive oil and Marseille Soap, enjoying the sunrays

Travel like no one, with Hopineo

Travel with Hopineo is also taking the time to meet people and share with Marseille people who made us discover the savage asparagus harvest, tried to answer our questions about the origin of the offered dishes at restaurant, who gave us change in the middle of the rocky inlet…

Hopineo is the wisdom to use popcarte to thank an inhabitant committed in the friendliness of her neighborhood, who offer smiles for passerby and crepe for kids, a citizen of the world born in Senegal.

To sum up,

Become aware of the fact that you have time,
86400 seconds in one day,
You can do whatever you want, in total freedom,
We chose to  meet inspiring people, to share experiences and solutions for a single week end under the sun of Marseille!
