France: Cannes, Nice. Monaco. 01.07.11
Just two days after finishing our 6 week road trip to Northern Norway, we headed straight to Cannes for Lotte (Børres sister) and Nico’s wedding, and a week in sunshine and warm weather! (freaking cold in northern Norway!!)
Arrived Cannes late at night and found our hotel that was situated close to the train station in Cannes. A cheap, simple, but clean hotel called L’Esterel.
Next morning we went straight to the beach to meet up with family and other wedding guest, and to get some sun and sand between our toes! A lovely day that ended with a huge “get to know each other before the weeding” party at a fancy beach club kind of a place.
Saturday came with a beautiful ceremony in a tiny stone church in a small village about 1hour from Cannes, followed by a great dinner and party lasting all night long! Really a super nice wedding!!!
Sunday = beach day, and Monday we went to Monaco! In Monaco we walked around the harbor, the Monte Carlo casino, the castle and the aquarium. Great day for the 3 of us! Samoa really loved the aquarium!
Back in Cannes the summer sale had just started so last day in Cannes went to shopping and a quick beach break!
Since our flight was leaving quite late from Nice, we spent the last day in Cote ‘d Azur in Nice. Strolled the streets and beachfront for some hours and just relaxing, before flying back home to Norway.
All in all we had a great week in southern France!
