Miss Travel McTravelson ~ Monaco

While I was in Nice, I took the train to Monaco for a day trip.

 I have always wanted to go to Monte Carlo and I was so pumped.
It was cold and rainy when I went, plus no one had mentioned nothing is open on Sundays in Monaco.

But I still treked around they were getting ready for their huge boat show in the harbor, had a late brunch and hung around the castle to see if the Prince was around, bored and wanted to go for tea.
He clearly wasn't in the mood, cause he didn't seem to venture out that day. LOL

The train station is at the top of this huge hill and there are tonnes of over and underpasses to get down.
This includes pedestrian walkways...

it was actually quite confusing and hard to get down.

But, I made it finally...

Isn't this statue cool? The tree.shrub behind it is growing in the same direction!

Just hanging out, practicing my curtsies, waiting for the man himself.
That's his castle up there you know. LOL

I thought this beach was very confusing.
All hard, sharp rocks, then a small square patch of imported yellow sand.

It was a fab day...just wish a little more was going on that day!

These pictures are so fun! Even if a lot of things were close, it still looks like it was a nice walk. :)
