I tried to think of the best way to share our recent adventures and figure that it might work out to write a post for every Friday for every city, in the order of our travels. So up first is the place where we landed: Nice, France.
|It's over there somewhere.|
|The view from our window - a mix of modern and ancient.|
Much of the day in Nice was spent wandering and eating. We walked to the beach to admire the fact that it wasn't composed of sand, but rather rock. We bought a painting on the boardwalk of Paris in shades of gray. We climbed a bajillion steps (roughly) to get to the highest point of Nice and took a ton of photos.
Food consisted of gelato (which was my first completely-in-French transaction), Italien for dinner (because how could you not, so close to Italy?) and pain du chocolat for breakfast. The gelato was amazing. I ordered salted caramel (caramel au beurre de sel). The Italian was delicious and we had our first bottle of red wine. The ordering of the pain du chocolat was another adventure, because I actually gave the order too quickly in French (D was impressed).
|I was so proud.|
