    Day 45-Nice to Imperia(Italy), 62 miles

    May 30, 2016 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    Well complete last minute change of plan today. Was supposed to get the 10.55am train to Grenoble but after looking at the weather there and at Alpe d'Huez for next couple of days and seeing rain and lightening bolts I've decide to postpone for a couple of days. Instead as the weather is still cracking here I thought I would head into Italy.

    With no where booked for the night I thought I would just ride along the coast and see where I ended up. Being able to change plans and just ride with complete freedom really is an amazing feeling and something I would recommend everyone should do at some point. It doesnt have to be on a bike. It could be a car, motorbike or just your own two feet.

    Anyway with the last stretch of the French Riviera negotiated the border to Italy loomed just after Menton. Almost straight away you see a change. The landscape is very similar and by no means a poor area there isn't the wealth here as there is a few miles back in France. Sanremo was maybe one exception as you could tell this was a real holiday destination with large yachts in the harbour and beach clubs and bars along the front.

    From Sanremo to San Lorenzo al Mer there is a 15 mile cycleway along the old coastal railway line. A dream for any cyclist and with many of the carbon lycra gang out it was a popular route. Stunning views, mile long tunnels and zero cars it was a great stretch.

    At about 5pm and around 60 miles I'd reached the town of Imperia. Very nice coastal hill side town if that makes sense. A quick look on booking.com and I found a great last minute deal at a resort in the hills with pool and stunning views for the same price of a hostel. So it was booked and I headed for a swim before dinner and good nights sleep in a king size bed!

    Carcassone, Nizza und Monaco

    November 20, 2017 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    Vordr Côte d' Azur simr Carcassone gah aaluegä. Früeh am Morgä simr los zu derä Burgstadt. Passend zu däm ritterlechä Ort isch o z' Wätter ruuch u windig gsi. Drum simr grad us ersts ines Kafi gah zmörgelä. Nach däm feinä Gipfeli u Tee simr losgloffä dür diä härzigä Gassä. Mega hübsch isches gsi! So viu kuuli, chliini Lädeli mit feinstä Läckereiä usdr Umgäbig u süstegi tolli Sachä hei zum Schmökerä iigladä. So simr schlussändlech mit vouä Täschä zrugg zum Alj und uf Nizza gfahrä. Dert aacho isch dr Camping, womr hei usegsuecht, vou gsi u jedä rundumä zue. Glücklecherwiis heimr scho ä Camping nach Monaco gfungä u de heimr dert chönnä aalütä. Sie hei no Platz gha u so simr churzerhand no über Monaco uf Ventimiglia (Italiä) gfahrä.
    Am nächschtä Tag simr mitem Alj uf Nizza. Dert aacho simr dürnä grossä Park u när diräkt ufä Place Masséna. Dä Platz isch umgäh vo schönstä Hüser i warmä Farbä. Vo dert us simr überä Bluemämärit as Meer fürä u vo dert zumnä Ussichtspunkt, ungerhaub vor Burg. Vo dert heimr ä mega Blick über Nizza u über d' Promenade des Anglais gha – sehr lohnenswärt!
    Witer simr nomau bim Platz dürä u si dert grad anä chliini Breakdance-Show härägloffä. Sehr amüsant gsi. Speter simr ir Shoppingstrass öppis gah ässä u de zrugg zum Alj u ufä Camping.
    Hüt simr uf Monaco. Us ersts simr grad zum Chünigspalast ufä u hei dert d' Wachablösig zuegluegt. Schono imposant, mit welerä Disziplin sie ds machä! Vo hie obä hetmä übrigens ä wahnsinns Usblick über Monaco – sehr schön!
    När simr dür hübschi Gassä zur Kathedralä. Sie isch grösser gsi ausmr hei dänkt u trotz ihrerä Schlichtheit mega iiladend.
    Womer widr dunger ir Stadt si gsi, heimr üs äs feins indischs Zmittag ggönnt u si när überä uf Monte Carlo gloffä. Dr Wäg isch über d' Formel 1-Rennstrecki, dür bonzegi Quartier u zwüschä Prada- u Guccilädä gangä. Zwüschinä simr näbä wissä Tannäböim odr dür wissi "Schneepärk" cho. Schono lustig dä Kontrast vo Paumä, Mönschä i T-Shirts u Fake-Schnee.
    Nachemnä churzä Zwüschähaut am Strand simr när widr zrugg uf Monaco u dert no i Decathlon (Sportladä) letschti Bsorgigä gah machä.
    När heimr die Stadt vrlah u si mitem Alj über d' Rennstrecki – schnäu wi dr Schumi – zrugg ufä Camping.
    D' Côte d' Azur het üs sehr guet gfauä! Mega schöni Gassä u sehr bezoubernd die Städt i denä Buchtä! Vorauem aubä am Aabä, wemer si dür d' Dunkuheit gfahrä, hei d' Städt guldig gfunklet!
    So. U itz isches so wit: morn trätämr üsi Heireis ah!
