Continuing our Europe Trip from 2013,
Check out the previous adventures below:
Day 14, Visit Piza and Nice
Expat Explore had this to say, " Day 15: A free day in Nice and the French Riviera
Nice was really good to us. There is The Promenade des Anglais, which follows down to the marina. The Mr. and I really wanted to just get out and walk. This is the first beach we were really able to explore since leaving Hawaii, and it felt great! We just strolled down, I believe it was 2 miles, and took pictures, talked, discussed, found a heart shaped rock, just relaxing in this beautiful town with each other. Nice is one place we will go back to, I'm sure of it!
Some of our other tour mates decided to rent bikes. I am not that great at French, but I knew enough to read the sign that said if you don't return it to the original place you picked it up from, they would charge you $150 per bike. It was a great idea, to get a bike and ride up and down the town, but they returned it at another docking station (same company, just a docking station a mile or so down the promenade) and sure enough, they charged one person $150 per bike. Since they all used one credit card, it was a big hassle and people were upset. Lesson here, do not rent things that you can't read the sign!
We stayed at the Ibis Nice Promenade des Anglais which was really nice! I highly recommend any Ibis hotels in Europe when you aren't sure.
I believe this night, we wanted to go for sushi, but the wait was just too long, so we decided to go to a pizza place, bring it back to our room, and have a picnic on the bed! Since we traveled with one bag each, we needed to repack and reorganize our bags before leaving each stop. It wasn't terrible, and the pros of traveling with one bag far outweighed the cons!
The next day, we were headed out to a stop at Arles and then on to Barcelona! Stay tuned!

So, today is the day I share with you my Weekly Wishes. I'm so happy Melyssa from The Nectar Collective came up with this link up! It's a great way to list your to-do list online, and hold yourself accountable!
I also am throwing in a couple of my favorite photos from Instagram from last week!
1. Schedule blog posts a week out. I had this done for vacation, and sadly, I didn't keep it up. So now, here I am, flying by the seat of my pants again. I really admire the folks who write like this! I feel so pressured and anxious about having nothing ready to go! I need to get at least a couple of days scheduled, then I'll feel better. So, I had this done, but I have slacked off while getting my head around the Prayerful Blogger schedule, so I will keep this one on here. I'd like to have this done a week out on BOTH blogs! Wishful thinking!
3. START SCHOOL! Yes, you read that right. I haven't even started school yet. I've been so worn out and distracted with so much to do, that there is no way I can sit and study now! Thankfully, the courses start when you want them to, so I haven't been in trouble about not starting. Hopefully next week will be quieter and I can focus. Yep, I haven't started yet. Hopefully this week I will get to it!
I was excited to launch this link up! A few of you participated, but I would love MORE to join in! The next link up will be on October 2nd, so you have a few days to get yours together and join us! The link up stays open for a week after, so really you have until October 9th to add yours to the party!
I won't add to this list just because there is still a lot still on my plate. It's always great to know your limits and to not stress yourself out too much, am I right?
I hope you all have a great Monday! How was your weekend?
