Nice, France

May 29, 2019

Today we checked into our hotel in Nice. We got settled in and decided to take a walk along the pretty beach and have a glass of Rose by the beach.

Afterward, we went back to the hotel and got ready to have dinner with a couple we just happened to run into who was with us at the Grand Prix in Monte Carlo. Kyle and Lindsey were a lot of fun so it was nice to get another chance to hang out and have a bunch of laughs.

Today we checked out of Hotel de Paris and got a taxi to Eze once we checked into La Chevre D’Or Hotel I went straight to get a massage.
Afterward, John and I walked around the grounds of the hotel which are amazing. We found out that the hotel covers three-quarters of Eze Village. We got ready and went to eat dinner at this amazing restaurant called Le Mas Provencal which is basically a garden inside with real flowers that are tended to each day. Tell Hans we said hello while you are there.

Eze, France

August 4, 2018

Today we took a taxi to Eze Village in France which we absolutely loved. We visited the Chapelle St. John. We lit a candle for my mother in law because she wasn’t feeling well which was special to me since I’ve never lit a candle in a Catholic Church. I was happy to light a candle for her. We also visited The Exotic Garden of Eze. It was really cool they have 100’s of different cactus plants and a little waterfall which was cute.

We will definitely be visiting Eze again in the future and will probably spend about 3 days there. Afterward, we took a taxi back to Monaco to go and check out the famous casino. Inside the casino, there was a maze made out of a deck of cards.

The next stop while there, we grabbed a cab and went up the big rock to the Grand Palace and we were lucky we got there just in time for the changing of the guards. We visited the Saint Nicholas Cathedral of Monaco where Princess Grace Kelly is buried. Afterward, we walked back to the ship.

Today we got a taxi to drive us around the first stop was the old town of Antibes and while we were there we walked around a bit to check it out.  The next stop was Nice where we walked through the town and took some pictures. Afterward, our driver took us back to Cannes and sure enough we got ripped off again even after having a final price at the pier he changed the price when he dropped us off by 100 Euros.

July 30, 2018

Today Nano, John and I hired a taxi to drive us to Calanche of Piana which was breathtakingly beautiful. Mother nature at her finest. After seeing the beautiful sights, we had lunch with a fantastic view at La Table de Neptune. Afterward, we drove to the Cargese Village which was founded by the Greeks in 1676. After that, we headed back to the ship. Along the drive, our taxi driver ended up having a fist fight with this guy and his wife while they were riding their bicycle. Unfortunately, I was fumbling with my cell phone, and I didn’t get the video of the fight.
