Sep 8, 2013 - Day#2 Old town Vence & Antibes

Bonjour! Today we awoke to a torrential downpour. Our original plans of going to check out the market were delayed. We ate breakfast in the kitchen of the villa from items we purchased during our journey to the supermarket earlier. We made toast with smoked salmon, yogurt, fresh fruit, and green tea. Breakfast was delicious! After breakfast we planned to go into town to checkout the butcher, fish guy and market Lars the owner of our Villa had pointed out. Well by time we left home base, it was 2p. We discovered on Sundays in Vence most...

Aug 5, 2011 - Antibes (near NICE)

And so we are heading to Nice for the weekend. Even though the whole month feels like a vacation, there is something about heading out from where you “live” that is exciting. We pack the car, close the pool, lock the doors, empty the trash, close the windows, all the things you do when you leave home, and only one hour later than planned we are on the highway headed south. The kids are in a conversation about their lives and what they will be like. Having picked their countries to reside in, they are now discussing the names of their...

Jul 17, 2011 - Antibes & Cannes

Beach day today! We had a late start today and we left the house around 11 a.m. for Antibes. Antibes is an ancient town founded by the Greeks and was a military base at the turn of the 20th century. After WWI, the army left and it became quite popular during the roaring ‘20s; water-skiing was invented here. We arrived at the Vieux Port where we parked by the marina. From there, we walked along the docks to check out some quite amazing yachts a couple of which were so enormous that they have their own helipad with helicopter on it, among...

Jun 20, 2009 - June 5

We all went our separate ways via various forms of transport with Mum heading up to Cherbourg to have a look around before Brett was to leave town. She flew back in just in time for my birthday the next weekend and Kieron and Anjali came once again and we all headed up to Les Deux Freres, the restaurant that overlooks the coastline towards Monaco. Neither of them had been here before and we managed to weave our way up the cliff to the town where you have to park in a lower street and walk up to the restaurant. We were seated at the table so...

May 15, 2007 - Antibes, France

Well I sort of got the hint today. Within a 24 hour period I've received 3 emails and an sms wondering where on earth I am and what I'm up to. Given I haven't updated the site for about 2 months I can understand, and it's awesome that you guys are still wondering whether or not I'm alive. As Kostya Tszyu put it so elequently, "I'm loving you's all". So I after a flying visit around Ireland, testing the limits of my little Chevy hire car I arrived in Nice airport via the Liverpool John Lennon Airport. I had an inkling that accomodation might...
