One Sunday, my friends and I decided to take a quick trip to the town right next to Nice, Villefranche-sur-Mer. We hopped on the train for about a five minute trip, then just sat on the beach for a few hours. We got ice cream and headed back right as it started to rain! It was the first time it’s rained since I’ve been here, other than a drizzle on my first full day in town- the day I spent in bed with a cold.
Some photos from the day!
Meg took some group shots that turned out funny…
The following week, my new French friend Lau took me up to the Chateau de Nice, which I believe is where the photo at the top of my blog was taken (right, Tyler??).
First, I saw this memorial near the port and the ocean. I had ran by it before but never noticed it!
After taking the elevator up to the Chateau, there’s a really cool waterfall- unfortunately, that day it wasn’t running and it looked pretty ugly. Oh well, another day!
Then we stopped at one of the many lookout spots on the Chateau.
There are the remains of an old 11th or 12th century cathedral.
There’s also a cool Spiderman-like web that we climbed up.
This is Elton John’s vacation home. It’s way far away on a distant hill/mountain, I just zoomed in a lot.
A view in another direction.
Obligatory photo of me in front of the scenery…
The last thing we did was go to a Jewish cemetery right by the Chateau.
So those are a couple of trips I’ve taken lately! There’s a lot to see in this general area and I am slowly seeing it all!
Also, Emmy came with me!
