7 years ago, I visited the French Riviera with Ben on our honeymoon. Our experience ended up being: a 6 hour flight delay, a missed train, a stressful moment trying to find the right platform during a train transfer, a scene that very much looked like the beginning of Taken upon arriving in Cannes and finally reaching our hotel in Theoule-Sur-Mer at 1 o’clock in the morning. Not to mention the 60 euro taxi from the station to hotel... we had no money and slept for the entire four days. We maybe used the pool once, tried to find a beach entrance and failed, ordered one room service meal a day (we were poor right out of college kids!) and definitely enjoyed the sunsets. Oh and then there was me cutting myself on an Evian bottle and worrying that I’d gotten staph ( I didn’t)! We love our honeymoon story and wouldn’t trade it for anything. But... ___
I will be the first person to say that this trip to Nice has been 1000 billion times better. Having Sofie and @jk_tinydancer
with us, being able to get out and explore, putting our toes in the only mildly cold water, eating all the croissants and ice cream and mussels with frites, and the best pizza... it’s all been so wonderful. I’m sad that this experience has to come to an end.
Tomorrow we set off for Switzerland, excited for our new location and sad to be leaving my sister and beautiful Nice behind just when we were getting used to having her around and being here.
