travel diary // Monte Carlo

While staying for a short 48 hours in Nice, we had just enough time to take the train to Monaco, home of Grace Kelly, for a short walk around Monte Carlo.  Inside the world-famous Casino Monte-Carlo, they take all of your belongings so that you can't take pictures or spill food anywhere.  Luckily, i still had my phone in my pocket, so I was able to snap a picture of the ornate ceiling inside :)  We sat outside of the hotel for a drink to just watch the people milling around, hoping to spot some celebrities, but alas, they were probably all tucked into a private poker room in the casino.  Still, a beautiful day trip!

this poster in the train station made me smile
