Today was yet another travel day for us.
We woke up early, checked out of our hotel, and caught a morning train to Nice, By way of Marseille. We spent cumulatively about 6 hours on trains today, not counting the waiting time spent in stations. To our delight however, the sun was shining and the weather was warm when we arrived in Nice. We were able to get directions to our hostel, and upon our arrival in Saint Maurice Square, we were picked up by workers from the place we're staying.
Villa Sainte Exupery is wonderful! The atmosphere is really laid back, and everyone seems really friendly. Through a series of mix-ups however, they had over booked the hostel and just for the one night, Kristin and I would have to stay in the storage room. Iranoy of it being? the fact that it was still nicer than some of the other places we've stayed!
Once settled in, we went for a walk in the surrounding area, but being the eveing, most things were closed. The view was amazing though, as our hostel is nestled at the top of a hill looking down on the rest of Nice. We haven't seen much of it yet, but from what we have seen, we are in love with Nice!
Talk to you soon!
Love Krisitn and Kerry.
