We made our way along the coast to Nice. The train trip along the mediteranian was gorgeous, the water was so blue and crystal clear for hundreds of kms!!! We opted for an air conditioned hotel and were very glad we did!! Our second day in Nice was Bastille Day (14th July) so we were treated to a big parade, complete with fighter jet fly over! We ´popped over to Monte Carlo - Monaco..as one does´heheh for a few hours - its only about 2kms square and so beautiful in a manicured and polished way as well as having the same amazing mountainsides sliding into the azure blue ocean!
We went for a few swims in the mediteranian...the beach in Nice is made of river rocks which took a bit of getting used to but are actually quite a good idea...no sand sticking all over you!!
In the evening we took to the beach with thousands of french for the Bastille fireworks - quite surreal sitting there watching and listening to about 20 different versions of the anthem!!! The fireworks were set over the water from 2 barges and went for about half an hour!
Of course we had croissant again, 2 bags of them haha!
