A Nice Time in Nice

These are really late, but better late than never, right?

Although the WiFi was horrible, it was a mini blessing-in-disguise turned slightly awry - if that even makes any sense! Not having great Internet access forced all of us girls to stop checking our phones every minute, but it made it slightly worse because we always looked for restaurants with WiFi and then would talk as we stared at our backlit screens, catching up on all of the notifications we missed.

Nice is a beautiful little city located in the French Riviera in the south of France. Some of you may recognize the region because of Monaco or Monte Carlo!

The water was a beautiful clear blue with different hues (that you can sort of see in the fifth picture), our hostel was nice as far as hostels go, the food was amazing, and the weather had me wishing we could cancel our other plans and just move there! Who can say "No" to fresh gelato and beach time?!

We were only there for a brief time, but I'm already in the process of begging my family to take a vacation there!

One of my friends, Steph, freaked out as we approached Nice - so pretty!

If you ever visit Nice, this is the place to go for gelato! So many flavors!

Panorama of the beach at sunset. #Breathtaking

Note to Self: Don't try #DoItForTheGram. It will be freezing cold and you won't get the 'Gram.

Trying to get cool wave photos without getting soaked on the jetty. Yes we spent hours at the beach. Basically a whole day if not for the whole we-slept-in-super-late-into-the-day thing.

Amazing pasta.

Posing with awkward statues during a walk in the park with my new espadrilles (only €8!).

Strolls by the ocean at sunset make me sooo happy.

Yes I brought my DSP Lilly frocket and my Sperry's. What else would I wear while biking the coast?

Watching the sun set over the ocean on our last day in Nice was the best way to end our time there!

Catch you next time.
