Exploring Nice

by Grant T. In the past three days we have had so much free time. We were given this time always after lunch for an hour and a half and also sometimes at night. Each day as a group we eat lunch in the park followed by an hour or so of free time. Usually a group of others and I walk around town trying to find the best pastry shop, which has become my European/French obsession. Once we buy our pastries, we go to find a place to sit and just talk. It’s been almost a week so far and we all know each other very well and get along great. Yesterday we had the choice of either going to a museum or spend the afternoon in Nice however we pleased. For me it was a no brainer: free time. A group of us walked for what seemed two hours to get on top of a hill to a get a beautiful picture and view of the city and waterfront. Each time I see the water I can’t help but stare at how blue and pure the water in the Mediterranean is. Grant T.

Also, today we went to a water park, Aquasplash, which is located in Antibes and is just a quick train ride a couple of towns over. There, we had three hours to have fun as well as spend some time in the water and sun!
