Location: Nice, France

MapToday we arrived in Nice, and we are not 100 percent ok with the location, not even 25 percent, more to come later.

Our trip to Heathrow went well, the flight was smooth and we were even served lunch, which we were not expecting, but we were glad to have.

When we arrived in Nice, it was sunny and warm, both welcome sights! Thank goodness, I don't think we could have handled any more cold rainy days!

Anyhow, after we got off of our plane, we boarded the 98 bus to our hotel, or at least an area "near" our hotel. Now, since neither one of us speak French, going to France may not have been the best decision, but we are trying our best.

Apparently, we got off the 98 too soon, and after asking multiple people for directions, praying that they spoke English, a few choice words, and my luggage breaking, we finally got to our hotel. Our hotel is ok, but in no way, shape or form is it what Travelocity said it was, and the photos were not correct either, but we are making it work.

We ventured out to find something to eat twice, with no luck. We did find a grocery so we have water which is a good thing. We found ourselves at the hotel bar to have a liquid dinner. We tipped the bartender, which was to our disadvantage as he brought us prawn sandwiches. Had we not tipped him, we would have had peanuts, that is what we get, but I did enjoy the olives!

Once we were back to our room, we feasted on cheese and peanut butter crackers and fruit snacks, they are keeping us going! After our gourmet meal, we decided to call it an early night. I think both of us would do anything to be anywhere else right now, hopefully we can find some food tomorrow and start to like it here, but it is very beautiful. I have never seen the sea as blue as it is here!

P.S. Lesson of the day, in Nice pizzeria does not mean pizza!
