Day 6

Swiss Alps to French Riviera

sunny 26 °C
View Europe with a bit of Asian twist on Szufan's travel map.

It was another long drive on the bus. Luckily we still got to stop at one of the Swiss service stop and I quickly bought my souvenir; however we didn’t get to use up all our coins and apparently they won’t take coins at currency exchange :(

There were heaps of tunnels from Switzerland to Italy to finally Nice. Some tunnels were connected with a very tall bridge which gave you a breathtaking view of the villages below.
As we headed towards Nice from Engelberg, it was getting hotter and hotter. I checked the temperature when we passed through Italy briefly and it was 27 degrees! The temperature at Nice was about 26 degrees and we were told this place was sunny for an average over 330 days per year. We arrived around 4:30pm and got to walk around before our scheduled dinner at 8pm. Across the park they had kids playing with the water and water spray to cool your feet. The scenery was beautiful and got even better when we walked up to Castle Hill. I was covered in sweat just walking around so we had to rush back for a shower before our dinner.
Our dinner was so yummy and most of the group went to some bars afterwards. We didn’t join them because I felt unwell (perhaps dehydration, long bus trip or heatstroke) anyhow we had another early night - if you called 10pm early night.

Tomorrow I plan to do some shopping and there will be a trip to Monaco in the afternoon. Hopefully it will be another good day.
