    Nice - I'm in Love

    August 15, 2019 in France ⋅ 🌙 23 °C

    After a reasonable nights sleep in the shoe box we made our way to the station. We had breakfast in a park, with a group of homeless people circling us for smokes. No luck with us. It is amazing how many homeless people we have seen in France, and makes me think how incredibly lucky we are to be able to live our life as we are.

    The train was once again fast and got us to Marseille where we had a three hour stopover. We stored our luggage and went to find somewhere for a glass of wine, of course! A truly beautiful town that has a beautiful port and looks like it would be great to explore! Maybe next time 😉😉

    Onto Nice where our Air BnB turned out to be amazing and our hosts were lovely and helpful, giving up their room so we could stay for two night! We dumped our bags and headed off to find the beach, which was beautiful. We found a place on the beach to sit and sip our drinks and watch the amazing fireworks they had arranged on our behalf, obviously!

    Wandered back along the streets and had a kebab as we walked. A very relaxing and pleasant city that we will explore tomorrow.

    Nizza

    April 1, 2019 in France ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    Nach etwas mehr als fünf Stunden Fahrt sind wir gut in Nizza angekommen. Ausserhalb der Ferienzeit sind die französischen Autobahnen 'ein Traum'!
    In der Nähe von Nizza wurde es dann aber trotzdem etwas hektisch und durch die Stadt war es abenteuerlich, aber mit Co-Pilotin sind wir direkt vors Hotel gefahren. Aber - kein Parkplatz 😕
    So mussten wir erst einmal um den Häuserblock rumfahren und einen Parkplatz suchen. Danach zu Fuss zum Hotel zurück und einchecken. Das Zimmer ist sehr speziell, gefällt sehr gut.
    Nachdem wir auch unser Gepäck im Zimmer deponiert und unser Auto im Parkhaus abgestellt hatten, machten wir uns mit Samuel's Koffer auf den Weg zu seiner (Ferien-)Wohnung. Samuel hat uns mitgeteilt, dass er am Nachmittag bis 17:15 Schule hat. Da wir noch etwas zu früh waren haben wir ein Zvieri gekauft und gewartet. Gegen 17:30 kam er dann um die Ecke und wir konnten seine nette, kleine Wohnung im 2. Stock anschauen.
    Danach gingen wir noch mit ihm essen. Nach dem Nachtessen haben Trudi und ich noch einen Abendspaziergang entlang der Promenade des Anglais (weltbekannte Strandpromenade) gemacht.
    Wir sind gespannt, wie sich das dann morgen bei Tageslicht präsentiert. Gute Nacht

    Cathédrale Russe

    September 21, 2019 in France ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    Die Kathedrale St Nicolas wurde zu Beginn des 20. Jh unter der Schirmherrschaft des letzten Zaren Nikolaus II und seiner Mutter, der Großfürstin Maria Feodorovna errichtet.

    Die Kathedrale ist der schönste Kirchenbau dieses Glaubens außerhalb von Russland und die perfekteste Darstellung der russischen Religionskunst im Ausland.

    Wir sind begeistert.

    Train ride to Nice

    July 30, 2017 in France ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    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.

    2nd night in Nice

    July 31, 2017 in France ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

    Since we failed in our quest to find a place to swim up in the mountains, we desperately wanted to hit one of the beaches Nice has to offer. The water was fantastic, and the surf made for a great swim.

    Feeling like we had gotten some much needed exercise after a day in the car, we headed back into old town to find a good place to eat. Once again, dinner was first rate. Nice is a great place to walk around at night, with a lively stretch along the beach and promenade.

    Also pictured was the tiny elevator in our hotel, which had a nasa-style rocket launch countdown as you ascend. Laura was not amused.

    Nizza Ankunft

    July 21, 2016 in France ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    Es ist geschafft, zunächst kurzer Aufstieg dann Abstieg nach Nizza. Dann einmal zu Fuß durch ganz Nizza, das zieht sich ganz schön... Plötzlich taucht es auf das Schild, dass das Ende des Weges anzeigt:-) Natürlich sind wir noch zum Mittelmeer gelaufen, denn das ist doch das eigentliche Ziel! Wieder einmal geschafft:-)Read more

    Hotel Negresco, Nice

    November 4, 2015 in France ⋅ ☀️ 19 °C

    Hello Riviera! We have arrived at the hotel Negresco and it is an incredible contrast from our hotel in Paris. It is beautifully decorated and so very decadent. You can feel the history and the pride they take in their hotel. The view is...well...see for yourself :)Read more

    Mountain Vista and random images

    November 6, 2015 in France ⋅ ⛅ 13 °C

    The view is of Monaco, France, Italy....and our ship! Amazing day yesterday full of villages, beautiful world of art and history.

    Internet is sketchy, even in town...you just don't realize how much you rely on being connected until you are cut off!

    Chagal mosaic in Vence village, home of the Sisters at Metisse Chappel (sadly no pictures allowed inside...Google it!), random cat...
