I loved every bit of this 2.02km square country. The views from everywhere are amazing. The city is so clean and pretty and the houses are beautiful. It’s very expensive, as you’d expect with it home to the Monte Carlo Casino! But if you can wrangle having a very lovely, kind and genorous friend live on it’s border (like me) or do a day trip from nice or another big city, it’s definitely worth a visit!

It’s a very packed country and is the most densely populated country in the world! Hard to tell from this picture, am I right? It does make for a lovely picture though.

After, spending the day wandering around the shops and seeing the Monte Carlo Casino, my friend took me to the french city of Eze for the fabulous view and the quirky streets.

|I LOVE OLD BUILDINGS!|
So apparently this city was first populated in around 2000BC and this building was started in the 14th century!!
|Such a beautiful place to explore!|
As much as I love my little jelly flip flops walking up and down steep rocky stairs was tough and a lot of “almost” falls happened. I’d recommend something with a little more grip! The most awesome thing about this place is that people actually still live here! There are art galleries and little shops to explore as well as restaurants. The old fortified building is very much a maze and confusing to navigate but I had lots of fun wandering around and looking at everything. Definitely a highlight of the trip!
|It’s worth getting lost just to find the views!|
|Is this someones garden?|
|The view driving back from Eze was amazing!|
|Just to brag, this is where I spent most of my time. I miss it!!|
My amazing friend Joss, her boyfriend and her mum were so lovely in having me stay, very generous and gave me some amazing memories. I just loved the pool in their apartment complex. Can I move in?
