OMG I was so hungover today!!!! It was a really long drive and all I wanted to do was sleep! I was so tired! It was a really long drive today, something like 10 hours, so I really made the most of the sleeping time. But first we made a short pit stop before leaving Italy, and that was to Pisa of course!! Magoo parked the bus in the car park and we could see the top of the leaning tower from there. We walked around and there it was!! Of course we all took the obligatory photo, Bree's was more creative as she pretended to flick the tower. Three of us then tried to do a picture with someone holding it up from the bottom, one on the right and one on the left, but it just didn't work the way we planned!!
Today consisted of driving and more driving.
We reached our hotel by late afternoon/evening. Again, this hotel was ok, and quite close to everything. We went up to our room, got changed and then walked to a resaurant which was located amongst on the up market shops. It was quite nice, we had quiche for entree and then I think we had fish. Nice for our first french meal!! Bree, Liz, Julia and I were then just going to go back to the hotel for an early night, but we got convinced by some of the group to go to a local pub, called Wayne's bar. It was only a short walk away and before long our bartender was walking along our table feeding us cocktails!! We stayed there for a few hours but left around midnight. It was dark by then and we still had to walk back to the hotel. It was pretty much just straight along the main drag, but still a little scary. There were a few shady characters wondering the streets of Nice. Luckily, a few of the boys had caught up to us and we all walked the rest of the way together.
Tomorrow we had a free day and Bree and I were looking forward to the sleep in!
