We are driving down to Genoa /Italy…at 10am it was already 31C (87.80 F).
The highway is really nice over there… BUT you have to pay toll station at different places and some cost $3.00 and the last one cost me $20.00 OUCH!!!
We where in Genoa around 1PM.You could smell the ocean AHHH LOVE THAT SMELL……

Genoa (In Italian, Genova) is a historical port city in northern Italy. It is a tourist attraction, often shadowed by cities such as Rome or Venice.
By the beach you can see pastel-colored terracotta-roofed houses, artistic churches, and lovely seaside villas.
We walk along the walkway beside the beach …And if you want to go on the beach …you have to pay.
The gelato was really good.

I took a picture with a sign …because it shows dogs. LOL…but walking further I knew what the sign meant….DOGGY POOL….HOW COOL IS THAT ….LOVE IT

Now, time to go back on the road to Nice /France

The city of Nice is located on the French Riviera in Provence-Cote d'Azur.

Blessed by a sunny, temperate climate, Nice attracts visitors from around the world. Among its many attractions are its beautiful beaches (you pay there also), lovely seaside promenade, museums and more.

From the hotel, we walked to the “Promenade des Anglais”.

This is part of the heart of this seaside French city.

The” Promenade des Anglais” is lined with cafes situated directly on the beach, and it's a bustling area active with cyclists, runners, walkers and rollerbladers.

Also, you have lots of little streets with café, small shops, boutiques and more….

Love the place, the beach etc….will go back there anytime and stay longer….did not have the time to see everything.

We stay late that night to listen some jazz at a café .

And it is not really that expensive over there, I was surprise….
