It's day 22 of my euro tour, feels like my head was stepped on this morning, didnt get much sleep last night, but it was an excellent day otherwise! visited the beaches at Cannes on the Riviera and took in the sights and soaked up some sun. bit of sunburn on the shoulders, but less than the other day. The beaches were great, and there were plenty of other activities to try, like parasailing and rollerblading! We all enjoyed our free day before heading back to the hotel for dinner and to prepare for our night trip to Monaco, the second smallest country in the world, which covers just under 2 square kilometers!! The casino itself was quite impressive, as was the city, and most of our tour tried their luck at gambling. Looks like my luck seemed to be the highest last night, judging from the 160 euro's i won at roulette. I honestly had no idea what i was doing, so most people thought it was astounding i won on a number, but I didn't have a clue as to what was going on. Today we're heading out to Florence, so everybody will be on the lookout for pickpockets, but I hope to enjoy the city, especially the space disco tomorrow night. of course, to get to that, we have to survive another coach trip, which won't be easy in the current state most people are in (tired, hungover or both).
