Nice, France

We’ve officially been in Europe for two years now! In that time we’ve seen a lot of things and had a lot of fun, but what we haven’t done much of is simply relax. Not to say the vacations haven’t been relaxing – far from it – but they’ve been fairly active to say the least. So this weekend we boarded a quick flight to the Cote d’Azur for the sole purpose of sitting on the beach and catching some sun.

The beauty of this trip is that we’ve already been to Nice and seen the non-beach stuff, so there was absolutely no need to do any of that again. As such, we sat on the beach, read, drank some rosé, sat on the beach some more, napped, walked into the Old Town for a meal, went back to the beach, etc. It really doesn’t get much better than that. As a result, there aren’t too many stories to tell about this vacation, other than the one where we sat on the beach and just sat there. That’s a good story, though.

I was also able to accomplish one of my random European goals, which was to rollerblade the length of the Nice promenade without falling or stopping. A lofty goal, as you can tell, and one that wasn’t really a goal until I got near the end and realized I hadn’t yet fallen or stopped, but as I was thinking about it I realized I should make this a goal so that I could say I’ve accomplished something. It was at that point where I almost fell…

One side note – we forgot to bring our camera on this trip, so no pictures. Oh well – they take too long to upload anyway.

Next weekend: no trips planned?
