We had trouble finding wi-fi in Nice yesterday. I hope you didn't lose too much sleep checking for updates!
Our free day in Nice was spent wandering the streets. I put my feet into the Mediterranean Sea, which wasn't as blissful as it sounds. The water was freezing and the the pebbles hurt my feet.
We caught a lift up a hill to discover the most amazing 360 degree view of the city and sea. While we were up there we experienced an unexpected explosion that seemed to be only a few metres away from where we were standing. We were pretty sure France was under attack for a few seconds there, until we realised that it was 12pm on the dot and no one else around us was reacting as if they were going to die. We still have no idea what it was, but it has been almost 24 hours now, so I think we are still on track to arrive home alive!
Hiring rollerblades and riding a few kilometres down the promenade was a definate highlight in Nice. So was returning them with no broken bones. The muscle pain I am feeling today however, is not such a highlight.
