Chateau d’If – Count of Monte Cristo – Marseille France
David and I have both been working so hard over the last two week, and trying to catch up at work from all our summer travels. All this hard work has us reflecting on our past travel and working hard toward our current travels.
We are sharing a previous trip we took a few years back to Marseille, France and Chateau d’If. David insisted we go to the prison where the Count of Monte-Cristo (a mythical book published in 1844) was based. David loves the book of the man, Edmond Dantes, who makes a wonderful comeback from prison to a Count with revenge. David loved the book so much he insisted I watch the movie together prior to our trip, and I was impressed as well.
David and I, like so many have had a rough past before we met, so we decided to never let that affect our happiness for each other or are families. It was a decision to hold to and we are enjoying life like a dream.
Rozina, it was incredible, hot and sunny, but a wonderful breeze, views from every angle, then we walked into the jail itself and was cold tortured feeling, chilling, a physical feeling of hate wrapped into the walls. Like Heaven
Wow! I would really love to see that place! Ever since I read that book in my childhood it has stuck with me, and Edmond Dantés remains a role model (aside from the vengeance part) to this day. Hope you had a great time there!
We really did, when we got home, we re-watched the movie. The location was hot, but breezy, cool inside the stone walls of the prison. The views were stunning. You could feel the love and hate of the location when standing there looking at it.
