Travel Blog Part 9 - Monaco

Written on: Sunday February 18th, 2007

A journal entry from: EURO5

The tiny country of Monaco resides about a 20 minute train ride from Nice - a perfect day trip if you have some time. For us budget-minded backpackers, we experienced luxuries like no other place when we strolled about in Monte Carlo, the city of Monaco. Turned out we had a bit of a convoy travelling with us when we completely coincidentally met up with some friends we first met back in Valencia that ended up staying in the exact same hostel as we did in Nice. It was the whole "wait a second, I've seen you before..." thing. Anyway, we had a few of us jump on the morning eastbound train and literally spend the whole day with our mouths agape at the riches on display, from 100-foot yachts to the norm that became just another ferrari driving down the street. A weird but very cool tip...if anyone's in Monaco, check out the Monte Carlo casino - specifically the washrooms. Test out the flushing system, you'll be in for a very pleasant surprise.
