Nice is Nice

Indeed, Nice is nice. Despite the...quaint hotel we stayed in (the hard beds, slightly sticky walls, etc..), I really did love Nice. It's a breath of fresh air - away from the bustling cities like Rome and London. The escapism comes mainly from the nearby beach (the Mediterranean Sea!) - water always has that calming effect. I immensely enjoyed walking along the beach and listening to the unique sound of the waves crashing against the pebbles. That's right, this beach is entirely made up of pebbles, instead of sand. A bit uncomfortable to lay out on, but I loved it nonetheless. And the fact that Nice is located in the French Riviera, makes it accessible to some equally beautiful towns nearby (Cannes, St Paul de Vence and Eze being a few). Nice is the perfect place to take a vacation from your vacation!

One of my favorite sounds - the waves beating against the pebble beach:
