Nice, France. La Baie des Anges. La Promenade des Anglais. Famous names and places many travelers’ dreams are made of. For those who have been lucky enough to visit and spend quality time in Nice, no explanation is needed. They know. For those who haven’t yet, let me tell you the story of my long-lasting friendship with that beautiful…

I am counting the days to my next French vacation. As always, there will be several great cities in the itinerary. It will be difficult to choose a favorite. Two at least hold a special place in my {French} heart. One of them gets mentioned often on the blog, or on the French Girl in…

Tomorrow morning, I will say goodbye to Nice, and the French Riviera, or as we, French people, like to call it, la Côte d’Azur. It has been quite the vacation. Tonight, as I am packing my bag, enjoying one last evening in my cozy apartment in the heart of le Vieux Nice (Nice’s old town,) I…

 Bonjour les amis, Les vacances are going smoothly here in my little corner of the French Riviera. The weather is ideal, around 85F during the day, and a balmy 70F at night. I could not ask for more. Nice is a gift that keeps giving. The city itself has enough to keep anyone busy and entertained,…

Bonjour les amis! Do I have a good story for you today! We are off to la glorieuse Côte d’Azur, the French Riviera, as Americans call it. I am so happy to return to a favorite city of mine – and you know how much I love my cities! When I was younger, I dreamed…

It’s been a week since I returned from my most excellent adventure in Nice. Déjà. (Already.) I miss you, Nice, mon amie. I miss your blue skies, the Mediterranean, your colorful walls, your olive trees and giant palm trees. I can’t wait to see you again. Today I would like to tell the story of a…

In love with Nice

A long time ago, I fell in love with the idea of Nice and the French Riviera before I even took my first trip here. There were so many stories, and legends. Painters, writers, celebrities have come here, only to become enamored with the light, the vibrancy, the lifestyle. Some stayed. Matisse. Chagall. Others opted…

Bonjour les amis. A recent visit to Eze convinced me that there is indeed, a Heaven, and that we, humans, do not need to wait to get there. Welcome to Eze-le-Village, sitting way up high on la Côte d’Azur, 430 meters (1410 feet) above the Mediterranean. One of Nice‘s many qualities is how democratic the…

Bonjour my posse.  I have good news and bad news. On the bright side, the studio WiFi connection started working the day after I posted my last story (it was probably me, doing the wrong thing, as I am not known for being a “techie”.) The bad news is I went to Monaco today and I…

Living on Nice time.

This post was written in the summer of 2011. It has been updated. Greetings from la Côte d’Azur [the French Riviera, to non French speakers] les amis! I landed in Nice on Saturday around lunchtime after a long, but uneventful trip. My bags arrived on time too because I traveled with a carry-on. I was…
