    Nice

    August 29, 2016 in France

    Nice is nice. But also very lively, vibrant city. We came just moments before it got dark. From busy 'LA beachy type' of city where people are running, walking, exercising on the sidewalks, to the bustling city, where sleep is apparently not on the menu, as there is so much going on.

    We took a stroll down the Promenade de Anglais towards old harbour, sea breeze was just what we needed and the view was nice too. Promenade is very long and it's facing the sea all the way. Even though the attack happened here on this place only one month ago, we weren't feeling afraid or felt any uncomfortable vibes. City lives on, as it should.

    We watched street dancers, musicians and colorful fountains. On the way back to the car, we spotted tons of restaurants and hotels. It seemed like it's very important where you eat, like you give certain statement by eating at the most expensive restaurant. This massive turism of 'show me the money' type isn't really our thing, but for the night or two, we would be okay even here. At least the view is nice ;)

    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

    2nd night in Nice

    July 31, 2017 in France

    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

    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:-)

    Hotel Negresco, Nice

    November 4, 2015 in France

    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 :)

  • Day6

    Mountain Vista and random images

    November 6, 2015 in France

    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...
