Eurotrip Recap: Nice, France

17 Oct

I left Milano Centrale for a mammoth train journey that involved a change at the Italian/French border, and was headed for Nice Ville.

I was a little overexcited by the time I got to Nice. I am a total Francophile and was relieved to be back somewhere that I could speak and understand enough of the language to get by in day-to-day life.

It was sad to think that this would be the lost stop on my adventure, but I was happy to be in such a great hostel in an amazing and vibrant city – not to mention the fact that it was 40’c+ and I was staying 2 minutes from the beach!

I arrived mid-afternoon, and after ditching my bag I went out to explore and find the beach – it had been a hectic few days in Italy and I just wanted to chill out.

(This is the best my foot had looked in weeks – it is impossible to keep them clean when you are travelling and not near to the sea!!)

I sat on the beach until about 8pm (it was still warm enough to be sat there in a bikini!) and then wandered back up through the town checking out some of the street art – there were loads of people around.

I was up and about early for my first whole day in this beautiful city (after a great sleep!) and wanted to explore the flower market and find Le Chateau.

It was a beautiful morning. I loved walking around the chateau park and soaking in the view – and the rich colours of Nice.

How beautiful is that?!

And when you finally get to going down the hill on the other side, you discover Nice port! There was some serious money here – such big/posh/expensive boats!

I spent the afternoon of my first day on the beach (and turned very pink..!) before heading back to the hostel. The food in the hostel was amazing – so I ate there and started chatting to a few people from my dorm, and we ended up spending the night together and going out to experience some of Nice’s bars.

See?! So pink!!

    I miss Nice! Although I think it was my least favorite part in my whole trip, I still totally loved it and find myself missing it. Well, in general I just want to be traveling haha! Good times. Loved that flower market!
