We travel: Summert vacation, 2015 – Saint-Tropez

I still have memories and pics in my pocket to show you about our very busy one week in August, when we traveled to Sanremo, as our baseplace, and then everyday we drove somewhere near (or little far) to see beautiful places.
Saint- Tropet was one of that places and at the same time the farthest place in South France we went. It was about 3 hours driving from Sanremo, and of course it was hot (sometime AC just not enough already) but really worth every minute. We had old memories about this town in movie series or/and old songs from the 90’s so we were curious if it was like Monaco (see Nice post) or it is really that cool and beautiful places. Mainly that lots of actors and actresses come frequently here for a lunch or just have a rest.
It is not that big town and oh my gosh! The buildings are as beautiful as in Nice, so many little beautiful details and colors and color-combos, but it is so much calmer. So much calmer. Except at the bay or by the alongshore but if you go farther you here silence and….. how can I describe? Our hearts were just go pitter-patter it was absolutely amazing. At least we did not went to the water here because it was just a tiny little “beach” but as we came here saw cool beach with sand in Saint-Maxime (it is the previous town before St.-Tropez if you come from the direction from Nice), and it was a free beach but enough big and that time (around 5-6 pm) already just a few people, we swam in the almost sunset, the sea was so amazing. Oh, I want to go back there!!!!

So just see the pics. Just see the pics.

We have fun: we love fall

Yesssss, we do. I really cannot imagine how that fall could not been loved by people. How? Ok, it is grey, rainy, windy lot of times and gets dark earlier, but common, look at that beautiful nature! I cannot get over how beautiful is everything. Maybe I feel this way, because we live at a place where we have ahhhmazing colorful trees? (If the hills and clouds would not enough blessing). But not, because we came from a place, where we did not have hills and barely have colorful trees. We had but not as much and as colorful as we have now. So despite that fact I am/have been always in love with fall.
So here are fed pics how we live our fall-ish days, how we live with the possibilities that season gives us and we decorate. :-)

Happy fall, y’all!

We have fun: Wanted some pumpkin, found a pumpkin field

As the title says, we wanted to buy some more  pumpkins but found an amazing place. It was almost a dream of mine to go to a pumpkin field pick up our annual pumpkins – and make a lots of fun photos!. So I was super happy. And the weather was wonderful, golden sunshine getting into sunset, nice weather  and we were happy. The bonus at the end was that few found straw bales which is on my fall list always, I think it is super fall-ish. Lots of happy moments!

We travel: Summer vacation – 2015, Nice

One of our plan was to visit Nice. We had have heard before that it is beautiful and my friend was here just right before our vacation and said it was so worth to see.
So we went. And did not regret. Before the trip I searched through the internet if there was any flea market and if yes then when. So we went on that day. And did not regret. It was the best flea market I have ever seen, though I have not been at too much. It was so elegant, we could find ANYthing. It as cheap and very expensive at the same time, it depended totally on the seller. When the weather started to be really hot, with our little treasures in our pocket went to the beach.
The beach was incredible, the water was incredible blue, so the sky! How you see in the photos it looks like, well it is natural wy it looked like (so no photoshop I mean…). However the beautiful landscape and so this part of the Riviera is not good to swimming with kids, Why am I saying that? The shore and the beach was filled up with little stones which hurt our feet like crazy (both because it was hot and spiky) but the shore was extra steep and huuuuge waves we had because there was no any breakwater stone. So if you can vastly get into the water as deep as you can, you will survive, but at the shore, it was really scary!!! There were some minutes when I was the two kids alone on the steep shore alone, and almost….almost a big wave drift us… so no Nice beach with little kids…

But what to do with little kids when we want to melt under the Sun? There is a fun water playgrounds for them! You know when little fountains, waterspouts come from the ground. Sometimes it comes slowly, then inmediatelly big and so and so. You can imagine, when lots of kids running and lauthin in the midle, and lots parents are waiting at the edge….in clothes… you can see in their eyes that they would just run through or praying inside that at least someone splash them… just a little splash! :D:D:D:D:D:D So, its name is Promenade du Paillon. The other part of the new area is a big green park, where you are allowed to sit or lay and picnic in the grass. At one of the corner of that green area there is a beautiful carousel. Really beautiful!

Beside the beautiful beach area, we were amazed by the buildings. They were just incredibly beautiful, so many little details, amazing color combos what you only discover if you just see one building during long minutes. I would take photo of all, but no way you know…

At the and of the day we went home (aka Sanremo) and of course on a totally different way than we went to Nice, to discover new places. That is how we went through to Monaco, and realized only its name is ‘wow’, Monaco is a little… (country?!) which looks quite boring. So we were happy that did not waste a whole day to it, driving through and see this and that was just enough. Except you have a lot of money what you want to spend on a big boat :-P.
But then we arrived to the top from when we could continue our way go back, and I saw this landscape, swimming in the golden sunset. A little Monaco, a little Nice from above and a half island. It was breathtakingly beautiful. Though we want to come back again someday!
