After leaving Nimes, we made our way to Nice for a few of the more relaxing days of the trip. We had a decently long drive from Nimes to Nice, but we still had enough time to explore the city for a late lunch. Our hostel was in a great location, but it was absolutely TINY. It wasn’t even possible to fully open our suitcases in our room. We survived the tiny hostel, but boy was it annoying to be so cramped. Because we had such a giant lunch, I didn’t actually end up eating dinner, I just stayed in to relax a bit for the rest of the night.
On the agenda for our next day was snorkeling in the French Riviera. We took a ferry from the port of Cannes, went to the Isle St. Marguerite, got on a bigger boat, and took off over the crystal clear waters of the French Riviera. We weren’t actually able to snorkel, although I’m not entirely sure why. It was a little disappointing, but it was still beautiful to hang out on the boat, and we were able to do a little bit of swimming. Once we got back to Nice, we went out for some traditional French food, meaning I tried frog legs and escargot, which I actually enjoyed quite a bit.
For our second full day in Nice, we actually ended up leaving the city and exploring a small village nearby. It was insanely beautiful, and we had a pretty good guide to show us around. We saw a little chapel that was filled with beautiful mosaics. Afterward, we got some lunch in Antibes and made our way to the beach. It was absolutely gorgeous, just like every other beach we’ve seen.
Finally, we ended up back in Nice for the night. We had a quick dinner (I don’t want to admit it was McDonald’s, but it was McDonald’s), then Jess and I went for mojitos. We wandered around the city until we met up with some other people from our group. It was a good night, until I got an entire frozen drink spilled in my lap.
It was then that we decided to head home to get some rest for our trip through Monaco the next day.
Stay tuned for more updates,
