JahTours International 1979
This is the year when BK went international, after extensive bike and train tours in Germany I felt fit for the European Rail experience. Inter Rail ticket in pocket and backpack on the shoulders I made it through ten different european countries, most with border controls and different currencies at the time, believe me, it was one big mess. Now most of these border controls have gone and the currency problem will get fixed soon.
After an exciting tour in Germany, 1979 I got international and started the tour in Switzerland. Not terribly exciting I quickly took the trains south into France an arrived on the legendary French Riviera. Until then I had seen the coast in TV and magazines but never the real thing. Railing in from Marseille the main traveller's hub Nice was too crowded and unfriendly stories circulated. Easy way out I took the next train to Menton.
exciting beaches on the Riviera
Over the years many people came to the beach for fun and incredible cheap holidays. Whether or not you were a part of the Menton beach gang of the 80s, we'd like to hear from you.
