Arrived in Nice early on Friday morning, from Geneva, to bright sunshine. A quick taxi journey brought us to Gare Nice Ville where we enjoyed a quick visit to Paul patisserie. Fresh croissant and orange juice, just the thing for a train journey.
Passing Eze, Bealieu and Ville Franche we were soon in Monaco and following a short walk we were sitting enjoying a coffee in Place du Casino surrounded by the new bubble type structures temporarily providing luxury shopping facilities. This is where we met our first protagonist from Czarina, the shop of a thousand marvels.
Following a pleasant meeting with the most charming of ladies we were soon close to our destination on Avenue Princess Grace. Once at the Amber Lounge destination we were suitably catered for by the lovely young ladies who represent this happy organisation.
Excited by our environment and hungry for sustenance we met up the enigmatic artist that is Paul Oz, sharing a light lunch before venturing onto the Red Bull Energy Station in Port Hercule. This was an extremely pleasant way to spend an afternoon meeting racing heroes and making new friends such as Mr ETC.
Thank you to all those people who treated us so kindly on the day.
