Nice, Southern France


13 June 2018

Today we left Nice. It was a quick trip to the south of France but we expect to be back and possibly without children, or older children next time! We had breakfast (free with room which is a nice change). Onto Italy!

Today when we got home from Monaco we took the kids for a swim. It was so awesome as Lucas did his first laps by himself! He was so eager and it’s so cool to see him get better! Indi also did awesome and put her head under heaps by herself with her googles for the first time! By the time we’d finished and bathed the kids it was too late to go out so we ordered Uber eats burgers which were ok! Mine had way too many sundries tomatoes! It was expensive too - €38 delivered.

Today we arrived in Nice after a huuuuge 670km drive here. It was probably a bit ambitious to drive that far but the kids barely batted an eyelid - they’re such machines at travel! Upon arrival we were greeted with traffic jams but we finally made it to our hotel (our first hotel since Lyon). Much to dans happiness we pulled into the parking garage (rather tight fitting parking garage) behind an Aston Martin! Welcome to French Riviera hahaha. We checked in and sorted our room which is nice enough and then headed down to check out the beach. We literally had no idea it was a stoney beach! So we walked the esplanade a bit to find some dinner as it was already dinner time. I hadn’t researched so we ended up at this pretty average place that was ridiculously expensive but right on the road so we car watched and saw some goodies, including a nice lambo. About 8pm the feel started to change so we took the kids home - not as kid friendly here.
