I wanted to book a vacation this summer with my wife, take her somewhere in Europe, somewhere away from 50 degrees celcius! This time she suggested we visit Nice in France, one of her best friends lives there and wouldn’t mind showing us around the city. Lucky enough, she invited us to stay with her at her apartment.
I have heard tons of great reviews about Nice, France and decided this summer to take my wife on an adventure to france, knowing that she is a french teacher herself…it shouldn’tbe too hard going around this awesome city.
My wife’s friend was nice enough to invite us to stay at her place instead of getting a hotel room. So we stayed at her apartment which was great because it was a 15 minute walk to the beach, the bakery is a block away, fruits & vegetables are right around the corner. The parking in the city is a serious problem, one of the ways that residence manage was to double park overnight. I think everyone knows that and allows it coz everybody has the same problem, kind of weird for me to see in Europe, but thats the beauty of this side of the continent.
Nice probably has the best beach shore I have ever seen, reminds of the shoreline in California but french. My first impression was great, the city has a positive vibe although they had a incident recently at their shoreline recently. That afternoon, my wife’s friend took us to see the memorial of the people who died on Bastille Day. It was a sad day in France, I gave a little prayer for the ones who fallen.
I gonna be staying here for 2 weeks, just relaxing and enjoying the weather. No air conditioning, but there is a fan that keeps me cool throughout the day. Can’t wait to go to Old town and visit the churches in the city, I will be visiting my friend’s parents who live in a village in the mountain side of the province.
