At the beginning of June, I got to take an incredible, once in a lifetime work trip to the French Riviera! My firm is celebrating 50 years and so they planned an all consultants meeting in Cannes to celebrate. Pretty nice work perk! I took advantage to travel around a bit with two of my colleagues and saw as much of the area as possible. I was gone a total of 9 days but everyone was just fine back home thanks to Robert, Susan, and GJ! I’m not sure they even missed me!
I’m going to recap the trip so please enjoy this slideshow of my vacation photos! 🙂
Letters for the kids to read everyday written…
and ready to go! This hat went everywhere with me and I was so glad to have it!
I flew from Birmingham to Atlanta to Paris to Nice! Phew. I met up with my friend, Angela, in Nice when we arrived Sunday morning and we took the day walking all around the city, fighting jet lag, and enjoying the beautiful weather!
The next day we went to the Village of Eze which was incredible and one of my favorite parts of the trip. It’s basically a village built into the side of a mountain with succulent gardens on top and it was just beautiful.
Look at this view!
We then hopped up to Monaco and toured the palace and also went to Monte Carlo where we saw lots of big boats, tons of fancy cars outside of the casino, and had a fantastic lunch sitting outside. Monaco was still pretty congested because they still had all of the stands up from the Grand Prix the week before.
We took the train back late that afternoon because we had a dinner in Nice that night with the San Fran office. It was a great kickoff to the trip. Lots and lots of walking! I think we clocked at least 8 miles every day! More to come tomorrow!
