Welcome to Life on the Mediterranean, or Life on the Med for short. You are in the right place if you are looking for travel inspiration surrounding the Mediterranean Sea, living in Nice, France and the South of France.
While writing my original blog, Moe’s Atlas, I realised many of my posts focus on the stunning Mediterranean. Clearly I love it. So much so, the South of France is my home. I live in Nice, France where the Mediterranean Sea is literally a 4-minute walk away. It wasn’t an easy feat, but you can read my article on how I eventually came to live in Nice, France and live on the Mediterranean.
My first taste of life on the Mediterranean was when I studied abroad in Bologna, Italy when I was 20. Within a week, someone from our group discovered the beach in Rimini was only an hour away. So, six of us piled onto the train and spent a weekend frolicking seaside. It was heaven, and the start of my love affair – with Italy and the Mediterranean. There is more information about how I developed such a desire to live in Nice, France here.
I created Life On The Mediterranean with the hope of inspiring and encouraging you to travel this region. I want you to experience what I love about the countries and cultures that touch this magical sea, and to consider moving to Nice, France and the Mediterranean.
Life on the Mediterranean provides travel tips and informative guides of things to see and do. It also highlights events, travel hacks, topics on the Mediterranean diet, personal impressions, suggested accommodation and tips for finding affordable luxury.
Did you know that 21 countries touch the Mediterranean? While I’ve visited nearly 50 countries worldwide, I’ve only visited 10 countries along the Mediterranean. I have a bit of travel to do, and hope you will join me on my journeys!
The Mediterranean is not merely a sea, but a lifestyle ~
A bit of history…
As former Marketing Communications Manager for Hyatt Hotels Corporation, I know hotels. Good hospitality and customer service are paramount! I’ve published reviews on new properties here and here on Moe’s Atlas, to encourage bookings and build brand recognition. I was also a Hyatt Photoshoot Art Director. You know those dreamy images online of hotel suites, swim-up bars, rooftop restaurants and fantastic wedding venues? Well I’ve stages and photographed those with the best Architectural Digest photographers available.
As Director at the Blackstone Group in the UK, I worked with developers and architects to create luxury student housing. Weird, I know. With 2500 beds in central London, operations, marketing and revenue management were paramount. We were responsible for generating more than $35M in rental revenue each year! No small feat. It also taught me how I could take my hotel experience and transfer it to the student housing market. I am, and always will be, a big promoter of international education.
Life On The Mediterranean will eventually host a shop selling products from local retailers attached to the Mediterranean to expose their brands. I will also include links in my posts about products or services that I believe you should try. I only promote things I’ve tried or believe in. If you are a looking to promote your brand, get in touch and we can discuss how to collaborate.
