It has been a little while since my last post but I have just been getting back into the swing of things and relaxing being back in France. So after being back in school for two weeks after our holidays ended we decided to do something this weekend to help break it up. There are many places that we want to visit and see before we leave so it was perfect to tick another on off the list. We decided on Antibes on the coast for a day trip. Getting up early on Saturday morning we got the bus and headed for the train station. Arriving at around midday it meant we had the whole afternoon to explore. The weather was quite nice for a day in January with a cloudless blue sky, it was a little cold but perfect weather for exploring. We spent the day wandering the town and taking in the quaint streets. It was not very busy as few people head to the Cotes d’Azur in the winter but it was still nice to wander around. We stopped for a quick lunch to help refuel and then headed to the Picasso Museum to get out of the cold for a bit and take a look at the art. I am by no means an art expert or know anything for that matter but I do love heading to a museum or gallery and enjoying the pieces.
After the Picasso Museum it was time for some hot chocolate and a crepe as an afternoon snack and reheat a little. We still had a couple of hours before we had catch our train so we headed to the sea front and went for a little walk. As the sun began to set the sky turned a lovely shade of pink and we were able to look out over the sea to Nice in the background. I feel like every sunset I see here is amazing and this was no different although we didn’t actually see the sun setting but the sky looked amazing. We had a lovely day exploring yet another new place and the first trip of the new year. Antibes is definitely a place I would recommend visiting as it really is a lovely little port town. It would be a little more lively in summer but it was just as nice in winter.
Now it’s back to getting some more lesson planning done before we head off on another adventure, so stay tuned.
