Finally! The start of summer is here! No wonder record levels of people are hitting the roads this weekend. This winter made everyone crazy for warm weather and warm weather activities. I can’t wait!
Top of the Eiffel Tower at sunset
Speaking of the Eiffel Tower, my welcome reception dinner room (I was the meeting planner) had a pretty insane view.
Clearly we hated this meal.
My favorite part of Nice is the old section of the town, Vieux Nice. Filled with tiny streets, old buildings, shops, and charm.
Eze is a medieval village between Nice and Monaco and is pretty much heaven on earth.
This would be the most expensive mojito and gin and tonic in history but totally worth it because it came with a view.
On our last morning we went to the flower and produce markets in Vieux Nice.
We couldn’t resist buying some strawberries to enjoy with our baguette sandwiches. I forgot strawberries could be so good.
Until next time Nice!
So, it was pretty a pretty amazing trip. Fortunately, the best part of vacation (the man) came back to Chicago with me!
