Take off was a piece of cake and once mid channel, the cloud cleared and we had blue skies all the way to Cannes, France. A good view of Mont Blanc en route was an interesting surprise. We decided to stay the night there as we didn’t have sufficient time to get all the way to Rome and put the aircraft away before nightfall.
We were directed to a small hotel, metres away from the airport terminal; this was quite adequate for a good meal and a desperately needed decent night’s sleep!
Note: Our trip is being followed by young Jamie and his classmates as their Geography project for this year. So no pressure! We will be adding questions for them at the bottom of each blog; for anyone else so inclined, please feel free to answer and drop us a line. No prizes though!
Question: Cannes is famous for its Film Festival, but what is the name of the wind that funnels down the Rhone valley?
