30 years of Jahtours International - check our group on Facebook! - in August 1979 it all started with a little help from Interrail and the Youth Hostel. For a whopping 10 years JahTours dominated beach vacations in Menton, then relegated to the Camping St Michel, and lately more active in Etap-Hotel in Garavan or Pierre-et-Vacances Residence near the Casino.

Sep 2010: This year we arrived for the first week of September, the French were already all back in La Rentrée. while we were enjoying the beaches of Menton, where the old town beach is best for the kids, and the pebbly beaches of Promenade du Soleil better for the avid swimmer. Finally Menton gets an impressive new art museum next to La Bastion, scheduled to open in 2012.
Jul 2009: This year the Tour de France started near our beloved holiday town of Menton! Monaco hosts the Tour for three days, starting with riders presentation, the prologue and start of the first stage. July 4th will see heavy action when the individual time trials shut down most of the principality and it was impressive to see Lance Armstrong at his best.
Sep 2008: Back to the coast for some late summer beach vacation. While late August is still full of Italians and French people, the beaches and the hotels get a lot clearer in second week of September.
May 2008: We managed to find some cheap rooms during the Monaco F1 Grand Prix! Besides it was fun to spend time with friends at the coast, and lugging around the kids gets easier every year.
Nov 2007: This year's Tour de France brought us to Biarritz and a major update for our Cote d' Azur section.
May 2007: Back on the road again, spring in Germany already feels like Summer and we explored Belgium and Tenerife, again. While the beaches of Belgium are not worth the 600+ km travel from southern Germany, we found good waves and beaches in the Northeastern corner of Tenerife.
Jan 2007: Happy New Year and all the best to all friends of JahTours International! After pausing the travel excursion discoveries in 2006 due to new family member, we now set sail for more islands and beach reports!
Dec 2005: 10 years of BK media on the Internet!
Oct 2005: With the world's best contest surfers present in Hossegor, this year's Quiksilver Pro got crowned by ample and huge waves.
Jan 2005: Happy new year!! Especially fast recovery of Indian Ocean beaches, which have been hardest hit by strongest tidal wave in our lifetime. For all other beach-lovers, just remember: when the ocean quickly receedes, it will come back faster and stronger.
Nov 2004: November was a sad month, I learned about the death of John Peel - the best DJ in the World, ever. Throughout almost 30 Years he found and played the best new sounds with thoughtful commentary over the airwaves of BFBS and the BBC.
Jul/Aug 2004: Summer is happening in the South, we went to the Hossegor Rip Curl Pro 2004.
Oct 2003: Back to our places in NewEngland we spent two weeks traveling between Cape May and Cape Ann.
