Abroad Photo Diary: Nice and Monte Carlo

Happy Monday! I'm back from probably the best weekend of my entire time abroad (I say that a lot, oops) and am wishing I could go back to the French Riviera instead of working on projects for class :) 2 of my best friends and I headed to Nice, France this past weekend to visit a few of our other friends who are studying abroad there. We also took the most beautiful trip to Monte Carlo, Monaco for the day and I swear I have never been so happy in my entire life. Perfect weather + 2 of your best friends + sitting by the yacht club in Monaco = a recipe for the most perfect day ever. I am so grateful for the time I've been able to spend in these places and don't want it to ever end! Check out some photos and recommendations of our weekend below. 

My favorite travel companion :)

Monte Carlo you are magical

Waffles by the Mediterranean are a must 

 Things to do: 
+ Picnic by the Beach
The Promenade in Nice, France is right along the water and has one of the most gorgeous views I've ever seen. It's so fun to grab some food, your friends and sit on the rocks and have a little picnic!

+ Climb Castle Hill
A little bit of a trek but so worth it to get a bird's eye view of Nice and the coast. 

+ Yacht Club in Monaco
A friend recommended we go to the Yacht Club in Monaco but I was not prepared for how gorgeous it was going to be. We sat at the restaurant outside with our lunch and drinks and had the best time enjoying the sun and the boats in the water. Literally the best day of the entire semester. 

Restaurant Recommendations:
+ La Shounga
The most delicious (and wallet friendly) mojitos! Loved the strawberry and kiwi ones. Sit outside and enjoy the view of the port. 

+ Illia Pasta
Coming from someone who is literally studying abroad in the land of pasta, let me just tell you this was some of the best pasta I've ever had. The owner makes it fresh for you and puts it in the cutest little pot. Highly recommend! 

+ Ballanger Confiserie Creperie 
You MUST go here for crepes, waffles or a milkshake. Literally the prettiest waffle I've ever laid eyes on. (See photo above!!)

Have you been to Nice or Monaco before? I'm so eager to go back in the summer and explore all of the areas around there!!
