Jenny Sheraton’s Travel Diary

Monday, 28 Aug 2006

Location: Nice, France

MapA not so early start - 8am breakfast and 8.45am depart.

Everyone is very tired and some are hungover today. We had an hour drive to Pisa to see the Leaning Tower of Pisa and get some photos.

Then a 5 hr drive to Nice. We got to the hotel with about an hour to get dressed up for dinner in Monaco.

We drove up into Monaco and there are some great views. We went to a lovely little restaurant for dinner and had 4 courses again. We walked up to the Palace and got some photos. Prince Albert was home.

Then we got back in the bus and drove along the Grand Prix circuit and visited some casinos.

Because the pigeon pooped on my yesterday everyone said it was good luck. So I went and put 10 Euros in a pokie machine ( i never play pokie machines so didn't know what I was doing) and in about 10 mins I won 301 Euros which is about $600 Aussie dollars. I cashed out immediately and bought the five of us who helped me with the machine a round of drinks. For 3 champagnes and 2 bourbon and cokes it cost 56 Euros! It was worth it. I am having a lot of fun now and I plan to go shopping with my winnings. I'll let you know what I buy!
