Sometimes we need to just hit the reset button and take a timeout. That’s what my husband and I did a few weeks ago. We took a trip to Nice, France. It was a wonderful trip! The French people were so kind and welcoming! I thought I’d share a few of my favorite photos.
Since I live in the Colorado Rockies you know I couldn’t resist the alps! Even if our view was flying over them! They are gorgeous!
How cool is it that Nice had a miniature Statue of Liberty on the Promenade des Anglaise?
It was hard to keep from walking into people because all we wanted to do was look up and around! The details on the buildings were mind-blowing! Many of these buildings are centuries old.
And the doors! Wow!
I love the rounded architecture on so many of the buildings. The colors were classic soft Mediterranean palates.
We even managed a quick visit to Monaco and Menton! The whole Riviera is a delightful mix of cultures. Most of the coast was once owned by Italy and its influence is very apparent in a charming way.
Times, they are a changing! I loved the lavender ice cream (the pink scoop) and the jasmine ice cream was divine (the cream scoop). Jasmine ice cream is an Iranian treat. There is a heavy Middle Eastern influence in the food now offered in Nice.
All in all, it was a fantastic trip that was refreshing to the soul!
