Europe » Monaco January 20th 2006

Today was a very laid back afternoon followed by a great night. We spent the day at and internet cafe and then walking to the top of a hill over nice to get views of the city. We also browsed around the markets of Nice, which were really cool cause they were in small alleys and such. After that we headed to whats apparently the smallest country in Europe when we went to Monte Carlo of Monaco. So we got a look at the F1 racetrack and tehn went to the casino, where i lost 10 bucks, and justin put it all on red in roulette just before we left to win 50. Rich people at the casino, there were at least 4 ferraris and an aston martin, bentley, etc.... read more

With a lovely day in Nice behind us, our new friend made, and boundless suggestions from John Cleese (whose real name we discovered is Ouf - mad! We made a rhyming song about him later) about what we could do, we decided to hit the road and visit Monaco. Since there was (and still is apparently) a train strike on, we had to catch the bus, but the bus ride was fantastic. The Mediterranean coastline is absolutely spectacular. The ocean is soooo blue and the cliffs are white and huge: I've never seen anything like it before in my life. About half an hour of crazy French bus driving on roads perilously close to the edge of the cliffs and we landed in Monaco. We've never seen so much money in one place before!

Europe » Monaco » Monte Carlo January 7th 2004

the next day, we made our way to Monaco, where there is the "Exotic" Gardens. we walk in, and it's all catcus. What's more, it's mostly cactus that grow in my parents back yard. the landscaping was indeed gorgeous, but I could take a trip to Anza Borego and see most of these very same specimens and not have to pay the 11 euro entrance fee. so while Mom is walking around saying, "Look at these wonderful plants!" she sees one that looked somewhat like a sea anemone, and says, "Oh, look at this one!" and proceeds to stick her hand right into it. After a moment, she gets this pained look on her face and pulls her hand back, saying, "Ow! That's sharp!" Yes, mom, it's a cactus. so I doubled over with laughter while ... read more

Eurorail 2002 - Photos from: Monte Carlo and Barcelona. A 3 week escapade on Eurorail and night trains beginning in Amsterdam, then journeying through Paris to Lyon.

After that, a mother of a train ride through France and Belgium to land just back across the Southern border of the Netherlands again to revisit an old stomping ground: Breda. From there, a penultimate jaunt up to Bruges then home from Brussels.... phew!!... read more
