Nice, France


When we were planning our very last travel weekend, we were exhausted from all the papers and projects and presentations that were due just before finals. So, we decided we wanted somewhere a little bit warmer, somewhere with a beach, somewhere with a cute little town to explore, and somewhere with no major tourist attractions. We just wanted it to be simple, easy, relaxing, and beautiful. Nice, France was all of that!

We caught our very last 3:50am train to the airport ever. Then, at the airport just before getting on our plane, I stumbled upon magazines from AMERICA.


I nearly died. There was even a Martha Stewart Wedding magazine that I hadn’t seen yet! Boo ya. I splurged on the over priced imported magazines because I just couldn’t wait any longer. And besides, I would need something to do while sitting on the beach!


We arrived at our hotel by 9:00am and we were ready to start our day. We grabbed some breakfast at our hotel and made reservations for dinner that night. Then, we wandered along the beach until we found the perfect spot to sit and relax and read magazines. The only thing missing was a couple of pina coladas. So, we hopped up and walked along the beach until we found a restaurant that served drinks on the beach. Bingo! Pina Coladas coming right up.




At the end of the day, we wandered around the cute little town and grabbed some dinner. We also stumbled upon a gelato place with about 70 different flavors. So, of course, we stopped for some dessert and I found my new favorite flavor: Lavender!

The next morning, we grabbed brunch in town at the cutest little cookie café ever.



Then, we wandered every little street of the old part of town and stopped to get some gelato half way through the day of course. You can never have too much. And it was our last opportunity for some European gelato.



We had dinner, where we celebrated our year abroad with some champagne. And then sat there for about 3 hours just talking. It felt like we had only been there for half that time. I guess it’s true that time flies when you’re having fun. Either that or we have officially become like the Europeans, who eat really long dinners like that every night! It was such a great place to end our year of traveling all over Europe.
