    Meandering in Monaco

    August 28, 2017 in Monaco

    Visited the palace with some great views!
    So the Prince took over the Grimaldi castle by knocking on the door, pretended he needed help and then stabbed them. Game of thrones much?
    It is also said that there is a curse for unhappy marriages in the family. We saw the cliff that Grace Kelly's car drove off. But also her wedding venue. The train of her dress flowed from the door to the bottom of the steps.Read more

    Day 27

    June 25, 2017 in Monaco

    Travelled from Milan to Nice today again with no border controls from Italy and France. To get there we drove along the French Riviera driving through Monaco which is the most densely populated country and with of course with the richest casino. We got in quite late so had dinner and a walk down to the beach so excited for tomorrow when I can go swimming wohooo!!

    Monaco

    May 31, 2016 in Monaco

    Second smallest country in the world! Check! Apparently, you can walk across the entire country in an average of 52 minutes, so I'm thinking I could do it in half an hour 😀

    We were there only a few days after the F1 Monaco Grand Prix, so they were still in the process of taking down everything that's set up for the race. The most famous hairpin turn in F1 is in Monaco, right in front of the Fairmont Hotel, and I was there!

    We walked up to Prince Albert's Palace for some photo opportunities and group shots... Not surprisingly, amazing views!

    Our last stop was a casino in Monte Carlo... I felt like I was on the set of Casino Royale! The last time I gambled, aside from my lottery ticket purchase after my hole in one, was when I turned 18, so I figured this was a great opportunity... I played blackjack and doubled my €50 starting buy in to €100, so I'm probably good for another 15 years! I also picked up some pamphlets at the casino explaining the rules of various table games. Craps is a game i have zero understanding of, so that read should be interesting.
