A Weekend in Nice, France

A couple of weeks ago my roommate and I decided we wanted to go somewhere warm.  So after a little bit of googling and flight searching, we decided to go to Nice, France.

We had to leave by 2:30am on Saturday morning, and I almost overslept.  But I didn't, and we made it to the bus that took us to the airport.  The first thing we did when we got to Nice was made our way to our hostel.  We were able to drop our bags off, but our beds weren't going to be ready until 3:00pm, so we decided to find some food.  We then walked up Castle Hill and got to see some amazing views of the ocean.  We also walked around Cimetière du Château (Castle Cemetary) for a little while, which has huge gravestones.  At 3:00pm we went back to the hostel and took a nap since both of us only got about an hour of sleep the night before.  When we got up, around, we found some dinner and then sat outside of a bar for a while because we wanted to stay up late enough that we wouldn't wake up too early the next morning.  We went back to the hostel at 11:00pm, and I was surprised to find that we were the last people back to the shared dorm we were in.

The next day we checked out of the hostel around 10:00am and walked around a flower market for a little bit before taking a bus to Monaco.  Once there we walked into the famous Casino (Only the parts we could get into free).  Then we went and sat on the beach for a while.  We walked into the water, which was cold, but we felt we had to since we had gone through so much effort to see the sea.  We looked at all of the Yachts in the harbor and then went up to the Prince's Palace before returning to Nice.  We grabbed dinner and then took a bus back to the airport.

The weekend was fantastic to get away and be somewhere where the sun was shining.  In fact, we both ended up getting sunburnt.  We spent most of our time simply walking around and looking at the ocean.  I am not a beach person, so I was wicked surprised to find how excited I was to see salt water.

Are any of you ready for Spring to fully arrive?  Or do you want to fast forward straight to summer?
