Nice, France

For those of you who don't know our vacation style. Josh is happiest when his trip is full of adventure and he comes home in pain because he has pretty much beat the crap out of himself(As he puts it). I on the other hand am at my happiest when I can sit on a beach somewhere and can bake in the sun the entire time. Well if you haven't noticed, we have quite a few blogs on Josh's adventures(Ski towns). But I realized last month that I was in major need of a beach that Josh has been promising me since we got here. So my cute husband took it upon himself to plan it for us. We rented a car for the weekend and drove down to Nice, France. It was the perfect time of year to do this trip because it's now considered off season. We were able to get some good sun, and didn't have to fight the crowds. Luckily, we only had to worry about the local nude women. I can't even imagine how many exposed people we would have seen a couple months ago. LOL!!

A couple weeks ago there was a art show going on in Geneva, Switzerland. So we caught a train down there for the day. So basically, every year people from all over Switzerland are chosen to paint an area of which the organization chooses for them. There were literally hundreds of painters all over the city. At the end of the festival, the artwork gets judged. Then they auction off the pieces. It was quite the site to see. We also had the pleasure of being serenaded by accordions and violins with french music during our lunch. Geneva is known for Jet d'Eau (water fountain), propelling 500 litres of water per second to a height of 140 metres. It was huge from close up. And the wind happened to shift in our direction, which meant we got a little wet.

Josh's playground

I decided to do another another blog, separate from Nice because of the importance it has to Josh. After we left Nice, France. We went to Monaco. And I have never seen Josh as giddy as he was there. He was like a kid in a candy store. It was so cute watching his face the whole time. I must say that seeing all the yachts was pretty impressive. Don't you worry Sweetie. Someday we'll get you one of your very own.
