The road to Villefranche-sur-Mer

france-006

After 12 years, I had managed to convince my husband to give Europe another try. We had an overnight flight from San Francisco and after changing planes at Charles de Gaulle we finally landed at Nice, France. After clearing immigration and customs, we exited the airport, found bus #99 and boarded it for the ride to the main Nice train station. I remember being a little worried that we wouldn’t get on the right train and a very helpful French woman (who didn’t speak English) tried to help us. I need not to have worried. It was easy to find the right train and after a short ride, we disembarked in Villefranche-sur-Mer. The picture above was taken that first morning as we walked from the train station to the Welcome Hotel where we had reservations. As we walked down the road in the morning sunshine with the occasional glimpses of the sparkling Mediterranean, I thought, “I cannot believe this! It is so beautiful. Just fantastic!”

That’s what travel is all about: the unexpected. Unexpected is not always good, but most the time it is fantastic.

There are 2 things that I really enjoy in: real estate and travel. I have been able to incorporate both of those interests in my life. I am able to work as both a real estate broker/agent and travel advisor. When I’m not working, I enjoy traveling with my husband.
