PPL hours building in southern france (LFMA)

Hello everyone,
straight to the point: I've gained my PPL licence and have 70+ FH experience.

1) i know it's very low, any suggestion on how to build-up hours being based in southern france? (Aix en Provence, Bouches du Rhone, PACA). I would enjoy firefighting or other security related experiences, if any available on such a limited number of FH.

2) what to do next? I have to specify that I've already a career in aerospace, so I'm not really looking into a job as a professional pilot. Being aware of the difficulites for much more experienced pilots in these times. If I had to follow the dream i would like to specialize in acrobatics.. but I would appreciate your experiences as well.

Thanks for the hints guy
way to go!

You might try to get some glider towing. You would need to fly gliders though, so that would involve getting your glider licence, which can't do your handling skills any harm.
