Happy Fourth of July from Italy, France and Monaco

Well, there were no fireworks for me today, but there were two countries, a principality, and two awesome beaches.

my first view of France, while still in Italy.

I have done over 1000 kilometers since starting in Nice almost one month ago

menton
And of course I had to stop at the first beach in France, in Menton.

Then I continued on to Monaco, and went to the beach there

Then met up with christelle, who is busy preparing for the monaco triathalon, and she let me keep my bike and bags in her office so I could see monaco. What an awesome lady!

I walked to the casino in monaco and up to the palace. I was SO glad to not be riding my bike.

And now I am staying in Nice for two nights. It is really nice to be off the bike and out of my tent at night, and….I even got to do my laundry today in a REAL washing machine instead of in the shower with me! What a treat!!!
