    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

    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

    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 ;-)

  • 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

    Heading to Avignon

    August 1, 2017 in France

    Our time in Nice was over all too soon, and we started to pack up to hit the road. Before hopping in the car, we realized we hadn't yet had a single crepe in France, and headed back into old town to correct that.

    We saw the flower market (which is really more a farmer's market), and bought some fruit to snack on during our drive.

    Getting out of the city was a bit rough, as our GPS failed to perform, and the maze of one way streets compounded our confusion. It was slated to be a pretty quick drive, but we hit a terrible traffic jam -- they had closed the other side of a major highway due to a logging truck going over the railing and spilling it's cargo all over the road. It probably doubled our drive time, and we were both very much ready to get out of the car by the time we pulled in to Avignon -- it was beer o'clock.

    Nice

    June 1, 2015 in France

    I had an awesome day today, Nice was nice! I spent the day with Kayla, Christina, Kevin, Josh, Danielle, Hayden and Anthony. We spent the day walking around the city and managed to see most of it, we even walked up to the lookout where we got an amazing view of the beach! Somehow on the way up Anthony ended up in a pond and afterwards he stunk so much he had to go to the beach to wash himself! haha. We ended up at the shops to buy an outfit for the Monte Carlo! I managed to find a little black dress. Really looking forward to tonight!Read more

  • Day39

    Suns out, flip flops on and nice flat ride round to Nice today. Not a massive amount to see on the way round but good cycle path. Having visited Nice before I found a great spot at Fort du Mont Alban which after getting to Nice pretty quick I decided to ride to. Pretty steep climb there but offers great views back across Nice and over the other side looking East towards Villefrance-sur-Mer and the uber exclusive area of Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat.

    Very much in holiday mood and after a short spell on the beach the evening was spent having a few chilled drinks on the front then in the old town area of Nice with a few people id met in the hostel.
