    Zwischenstop im hotel

    September 30 in France

    Müde im hotel angekommen, noch 5 andere Crew Mitglieder getroffen und die übrigen 6 haben den Flug verpasst und kommen irgendwann morgen an - die armen!

    Wollte grad schlafen, da gab es eine Party im Nachbarzimmer 😳 zum Glück kam eine nette Dame von der Rezeption und hat für Ruhe gesorgt. Nun schnell schlafen, morgen um 7 Uhr werden wir abgeholt 🙄Read more

    May 16 in France

    Nach kleinen Startschwierigkeiten (ein platter Fahrradreifen) haben wir eine circa 1 stündige Fahrradtour entlang der Côte d'Azur bis nach Nizza gemacht. Sehr schön. Zunächst hat uns die Stadt optisch nicht gefallen, da man vom Strand aus fast nur Hotels und Casinos sieht, doch auf den zweiten Blick ist vor allem die Altstadt sehr schön mit sehr vielen kleinen Geschäften. Wir sind über einen kleinen Kunstmarkt geschländert und haben uns die Altstadt angeschaut. Auf dem Rückweg hat dann auch noch das andere Fahrrad Probleme gemacht, trotzdem haben wir es zurück zum Bus geschafft.Read more

    Nice was nice-ish

    September 18, 2017 in France

    Nice was nice, but certainly not my favourite place in this part of the world. This may in part be due to the hideous weather that came along today. A bit of a chill in the air, cloudy so not blue sky and intermittent drops of rain. A bit annoying really! Because Nice isn't really a tourist location to be enjoyed in inclement weather, it was a bit of a dampener on proceedings. As a result, we also decided to ditch the idea of going to Monaco. The hills are definitely more our thing than the waterfront locations.

    Our AirBnB coffee table has the Rick Steves guide to the French Riviera. We took his advice and decided to avoid the exorbitant fees and hassle of parking in the centre of Nice and parked at a nearby tram station. That all went pretty smoothly. We wandered around the markets in Vielle Ville, which based on the pricing of their wares (which were mostly pretty good), they cater for a more affluent clientele. It started to spit so we took refuge and had a leisurely lunch on the waterfront - the kids enjoyed crepes, Glen and I had homemade gnocchi, Craig had mostly salad. After lunch, a walk along the Promenade was required to appease lunch guilt.

    Notable things on the Promenade... Craig got a call from an old school friend via Facebook Messenger, so I thought I might as well ring my sister.

    I am being good tonight and going straight for the wine to avoid the bier ;-)

    First Night/Dinner in Nice

    July 30, 2017 in France

    After checking in, we headed over to old town to stretch our legs after sitting still most of the day. Before we made it down there, we climbed up to the city's observation point to get a good view of Nice and see the very pretty man-made waterfall.

    After taking in the layout of the town, we headed down to see the cathedral at the center of town, have a drink, and do some people watching.

    The concierge had recommended a restaurant featuring live jazz, which caused Laura's face to light up, so we headed there for dinner and had another fantastic meal, wine, and dessert (apple tart flambe). It's a good thing we're doing so much walking to burn it all off.

  • Day1199

    Start of my longest trip yet without having to fly home for something! Decided on the south of France in Summer because - why not? Started off in Nice which was brilliant, wonderful food, wine and weather! My friend from Canada, Danielle met up with me too so I had some company for a few days which is always welcome.Read more

  • Day1202

    Last day in the south of France! Enjoyed my time here and it’s a great spot to visit and experience a different lifestyle as it’s so laid back and decadent! Just a few snaps from the beach as that’s all that’s here really!

    Train ride to Nice

    July 30, 2017 in France

    Woke up early for one last swim (I let Laura keep sleeping) before we packed up and checked out. A series of delayed trains made our ride into France take a little longer than planned, but we made it with plenty of time left in the afternoon to walk around and have dinner.

    We went past kilometers and kilometers of beach, which made for an interesting view on the way over. Monaco and Monte Carlo were impressive as well, but I'm glad we're staying in Nice instead.Read more
