My hotel in Nice
so traveling all day when u are sick, sucks, nothing else i can say for that. i get to the train station at like 7am and the guy there tells me to take local trains up to nice, that way i also don't need reservations, which is good since i was traveling last min and also even tho i have a youth global train pass, trains with reservations cost money for the reservation, usually 3 to 15 euros.now i def like traveling by train. all the trains i went on were very nice except the one coming out of barcelona to cerrebre france. it was crowded and seats were bad and it was a lot of regular people talking loud. once o got to cerrebre, it was smooth sailing from there. trains were not overcrowed, seats comfy and nothing but fellow backpackers on there. so the whole trip was 12 hours.
i did not really sleep on the train since it was going along the french rivera coast and was great seeing everything. stopped in marseille, very very nice. finally got to Nice, tired, still feeling sick, i did get some medicine from the farmacia in barcelona, but i don't know what it was, made me nervous since the person there spoke no english and there is nothing but spanish on the box. oh the challenges i have faced. well i get to france, and again, noone speaks english, not even people who work in the train station. i am too tired ot figure out how 2 get to the hostel, so i just go and get a taxi. highway robbery, cost me 18 euros. but i did need to get to a atm whichi guess took more time, since there were no atms anywhere around the train station.
roaming around Nice
as soon as i left train station, i got this feeling , someone was watching me, well this once guy came up to me and was trying 2 talk to me, but spoke no english. i get to the hotel finally and am releived, its decent and i was dog tired and hungry. now even tho i was dead tired, being in a new place, i have to go out and explore. so i walk out to find food, harder then i can even say, nothing is in english, so i don;'t understand anything on menus, and people don't speak it either, i finally went up to a place that had pictures on the sidewalk and pointed to the food i wanted. was not great but hit the spot. i go back to the hotel cause it was getting dark and just did not seem like a good idea to be there at night alone where i was. i turn on the tv , of course all in french, i did not care, all i wanted was sleep, as soon as i hit the pillow, i was out cold.
