    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

    France - Nice - day 1

    France - I like you already! I am so funny. I choose my day of arrival in Nice the day of the Iron Man (right on my street). It's packed with people practicing at its only 9am! 🤣

    Je suis arrivee tres tot a mon hotel et la dame m'a toute suite invitee pour un cafe et dejeuner! Trop chouette ici! 😍

    Nizza

    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

    Agde to le Bar-Sur-Loup

    September 16, 2017 in France

    A travel day today... We left our boat, Craig ordered a taxi, in a mixture of French and English, and it actually turned up and could fit all 6 of us in along with all our luggage! A bit of waiting around in Le Cap d'Agde until it was time to pick up the hire cars and we were off.

    The drive to le Bar-Sur-Loup took just over 4 hours, mostly on toll roads (otherwise you can add another 2 hours to the journey time), so it was relatively calm. French people have no idea how to drive straight, in their own lane, or indicate. Quite frightening at times!

    The village of le Bar-Sur-Loup is in the mountainous hinterlands about 60 minutes from Nice. It is quaint! Streets are skinny, our car is parked in a public car park somewhere up the hill from where we are staying, but we have lovely views of the valley formed by the Loup River.

    We wandered down the road and had dinner at a bistro with views across said valley, on a terrace where the pergola was dripping with grapes on a vine. Pretty awesome!

    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 ;-)
