Today we watched the qualifying race on the 140′ yacht name Soy Amor.
We had an amazing time and we met some really cool new people. Afterward, we went to Nobu for dinner and after dinner, we then met up with Lindsey, Kyle, Pepe, Carlos, Roula, Jim and Eddie for a nightcap in Le Bar Americain which was a blast!!!
5/26/19 – Monaco – actual race – today we were lucky enough to be in Garniere suite with an unbelievable view of the track. We were right above one of the turns and there was space for cars to take the lead which was exciting. We had a wonderful time with the new friends that we met. After the race was over John and I went back to the room to get ready for Dinner. We had reservations to the fabulous restaurant in Hotel de Paris called Louis XV. This was an amazing experience which I would recommend everyone try at least once. Every course had a unique layout and silverware and it was nicely done almost like art.

Monte Carlo, Monaco

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.

Follow us on our journey the next destination is Florence-Pisa, Italy.
