Today our 1 euro bus was taking us to Monaco A.K.A Ferrai Land…but we missed our stop and ended up in Menton!! How we managed to miss the Gran Prix track, Monte Carlo Casino, Botique Stores and beaches is beyond us…but we did and ended up in…Menton!!
Actually it was quite nice!! Since we made the mistake we decided to stick it out and head to the beach…where we swam in the nicest water in the French Riverea!! The water was so salty that we floated our troubles away…before realising we didnt know where to catch the bus back to Monaco!! Our French isnt good but somehow we managed to find our way to the bus station to catch the bus…only to be told by the female bus driver we couldnt ride in her bus beacuse we were showing too much skin (swimwear as we call it…gotta love the French!!) So we put clothes on and made the bus, but since we didnt say ‘merci’ after paying we got abuse yelled at us!! We still made it to Monaco, and once we hopped off the bus we swiftly flicked the bird to the ‘French Cow’ as she drove on her way!! We love Bus Drivers!!
…We were in Monaco!! This place was Rodeo Drive everywhere you looked!! We first headed to the world famous Monte Carlo Casino, and were very surprised to be let in…well a little bit without paying anyway!!
We grabed some lunch and headed to a nearby park to watch the people and cars, and were shocked to find at least every second car we saw was a Ferarri!! Amazing!!
After refueling we grabbed some maps to walk the world famous Monaco Gran Prix track all the way to the ports and the start line of the track. There we found yet another port filled with luxury boats as far as the eye could see. We have now made our decision on what boat we want when we’re rich!!
After getting so hot walking around this amazing place we headed to the Monte Carlo beach to catch some rays and have a dip in the ocean, only for our sun baking session to be stopped short as the sky scraper apartments overlooking the beach blocked the sun!! So it was Gelato time (by now we are experts at every flavour!!)
