After two wonderful days in Paris, it was off to Nice with an early morning wake up call. We headed off to the train station, where we caught a high speed train to Nice in the French Riviera. The French countryside was spectacular, even at speeds of 160 km/h, and by the time we "took the turn" along the French coast, the water was breathtaking.
We checked into our hotel and the team had some free time, where they went to the stone beach along the Mediterranean and even did some parasailing. The beach and shopping time must have wiped the squad out as they hit the sack fairly early. Maren, who played for one year professionally in Nice, took a quick trip to her old gym (we hope to have a video for you tomorrow). In the evening, most of the staff caught a delicious meal in the Old District of Nice and then did some people watching while eating a Nutella crepe.
The Lady Lions are back on the road tomorrow, heading to Monaco for an afternoon of sightseeing before heading on to Lake Como for a two-day stint. Everybody is hoping to run into George Clooney in Como. :)
