Nice & Monaco
After Paris we took the TGV (read: high speed rail…about time we got some of these in the US of A, no?) to Aix-en-Provence to visit with Eric’s sister and family. We spent a few days there, walking around and enjoying Provence and the warmer weather. Next we headed to Arles, a little city on the Rhône that has some amazing Roman ruins. And then to Nice! We spent three days there, enjoying the beautiful beach and basking in the sun. During our visit we took the bus, which runs right along the coast, to Monaco for a day and visited their Aquarium (fun, but nothing beats our Monterey Bay Aquarium, that’s fo sho) and amazing exotic garden.
