Heading to Monaco!

Today we got up early and left for what i thought was part of France but is acutally its own country, Monaco City. We arrived fine after hours of driving and looking at the views we arrived at our cabins in Nice, about 20 minute drive from Monaco. The cabins were really nice, one of the nicest accommodation we have had so far. We were told to get looking “hot and sexy” and head out to Monaco’s famous casino, Monte Carlo. Before this, we had another surprise. This was frogs legs and wine before another big night out. I actually ate a frog leg which I was surprised at because they looked alive when I saw them all!! So gross but they tasted ok. The wine washed it down which was great.
We headed out and my god the drive along Nice beach to Monaco was amazing, so so breath taking. I really like this city and will be coming back in no time!! The view from around the hills over looking the ocean was something everyone needs to do before they die. I think it was the most prettiest view I have ever seen and my photos really don’t capture it all. We arrived for a walk about dinner and learnt history about Monaco. It was really good, I enjoyed this night so much. We had another surprise, that involved more wine. We stopped at a amazing view overlooking the water for KMs and KMs, you couldnt even see the horizon.
We then headed for the casino and on the way Magghy asked the group if anyone was generally lucky when it comes to gambling and has general luck. For those of you who know my mother Dayle well, luck is in our family a little. And its not just because I carry a little lucky budda around with me. . Anyway, I said I was a little lucky so we had a group bet. Everyone put 1 EURO into a bag and we had 53 Euro to spend at the casino. . Well I did. I started at Russian roulettebecause everyone told me to go there first but I really had no idea what I was doing. So with the 10 Euro we had left I put it into the machines. At the last spin, I got 35 free spins which was awesome, and turns out I got 77 Euro out of it. Soooo, I was asking around what the group wanted to do with the money and everyone said put it back in another machine (my gut was thinking to keep the winnings) so I lost it all L but we all had so much fun and this place was amazing, I kept my eye out for all the famous people around, but saw none.
oh and this evening, we came back to the cabins and had some drinks at the bar. I really wanted to walk to the beach, which was about 15minutes away so my friend Blake and Michael headed there at about 12.30. It was so peaceful and lovely. I love listening to the waves and seeing the view. It was def worth it.
