Since I’m not one for major touristy things, Paris was a bit overwhelming for me! The crowds were extra crazy due to the Euro Cup and so it wasn’t relaxing by any means… That being said, it was still an amazing experience and I’m super grateful to have been able to see all the amazing buildings, structures, and famous landmarks Paris has to offer. Also, we had wonderful company, which makes any city you travel to that much more enjoyable and memorable.
All that being said, when Irek and I arrived in Nice a few days ago, it was like a breath of fresh air! We definitely prefer to be close to the sea or ocean as much as possible, and also enjoy warmer climates… So we really have come to love Nice!
We found a beautiful Airbnb about a 20 minute walk down to the beach, so the location was super convenient. It was also very nice to start the day with a bit of a walk… Although we’ve been walking 15-20 km everyday!
My favourite part of Nice so far though, is Old Town. The streets are small, quaint, colourful, and welcoming. There are restaurants and bars everywhere you look, and so much going on, but yet it has such a different feel than Paris. It’s not as fast-paced, and the vibe is much more relaxed.
It is still quite difficult to find vegan food in Nice, similar to Paris, but we have had some success which I’ll post about shortly. All in all, we love Nice and have been blown away by the beauty of The French Riviera. We’re already hoping to come back next year!
We actually just left Nice a few hours ago and arrived in Cannes. It’s a bit rainy here but I’m confident the sun will peak out soon enough!
Hope everyone is having a beautiful day. Sending lots of love to you.
