Every month at my job I was allowed one Friday when I could leave at 1pm. I chose to use this on Friday 9th October and took myself off to Nice! 

It was getting into Autumn in London, and I knew Nice would be warmer but was so not prepared for the summer-like temperatures! It was lovely! But I had a lot of ground to cover - my first port of call after leaving my hotel was to walk down the Promenade and up the stairs to the Vieia Vila perched on the hill. This looked down over the whole of Nice - the beaches, the old town and even over the other side to the marina where the million-euro yachts were floating. 

After wandering around through there - it was so beautiful - I walked on to the cemetery of Nice, which has the most amazing views... too bad its inhabitants can't appreciate it!
