Monte Carlo, Monaco 6-22-11
"Own that ponytail, work that up-do!"
"Grace Kelly, Grace Kelly...."
We woke up this morning and left for Monaco, the little tiny country inside of France. The early 20th century actress Grace Kelly was once the princess of Monaco. If you don’t get the title of this blog, look up on youtube the “Can I have your number?” Mad TV skit. Hilarious. Anyways, the drive from Lucca to Monaco took about four hours, give or take a bit of time.
Once we got to Monaco, we could not find anywhere to park. It was extremely frustrating, so after driving around for about an hour, we decided to move on. We got a lovely driving tour of Monaco, but didn’t get out and walk around or anything. The same happened in Marseille, France. We couldn’t find a single parking garage or parking spot, so we got frustrated and left. We have decided that we don’t like France, well, at least the south of France. The only thing here is the beach. We could have stopped and stayed at the beach for a bit, but we decided to drive on as far as we could before stopping for the night. So, in other words, today we were in the car for a loooooong time. Now we will have extra time in Spain, and wont have to rush our time in Barcelona, Valencia, and Madrid, which will be great. I can’t wait for Spain! Somewhere that I can finally speak the language!
