Monaco to London
Tuesday 5th September 2023
We headed back to London today - me by train, the girls by plane.
Aix and Monaco September 2023
I woke early again, but this morning the sunrise didn’t look quite so interesting, so I couldn’t be bothered to go any further than the balcony.
Breakfast at the hotel again.
Erika ordered her own omelette - in French!
Waving the girls off at the bus stop opposite the hotel.
They were going to get the bus to Nice Airport, and fly back from there. Whereas I was going all the way back to London by train.
I had a bit of time in Nice to buy lunch for the train, and was intrigued by “O’Tacos” - a fast food chain which sounded like some kind of Irish / Mexican fusion cuisine. Better still it seems they had some kind of fake meat vegetarian option.
On the TGV from Nice to Paris. Wonderfully quiet to begin with.
My O’Tacos bag.
It wasn’t bad. Didn’t seem very Mexican to me but it was gratifying to find someothing overtly vegetarian / vegan in France.
Some very reasonably priced Bourgogne Hautes Cotes de Nuits I had picked up in the wine shop in Monaco which made the nearly six hour train journey from Nice to Paris pass a lot more pleasantly.
A “village perch’e” seen from the train.
On the Eurostar now. A bit of a sunset over Northern France.
