Just a few days ago I came back from my trip from France! the trip was planned since March. It is such a beautiful country. I believe traveling is an important part of growing as a person and learning new things because you expose yourself to so many different cultures, experiences and ways of living that are so different from the ways we live. Travelling opens ones mind to how vast and beautiful our world is! It educates us into learning more about the other people that live on our planet. Our world holds many precious gifts, artifacts, and history that is worth seeing and learning. I mean, who wouldn’t want to see the Eiffel tower in Paris or the Colosseum in Greece? I am grateful for every opportunity that I get to travel wether it be in another town, province, country or continent!
My family and I stayed in a chalet in a place called Meribel, one of the three valleys alongside Courcheval and Val-thoren. It is a very mountainous region with spectacular views. It’s about 2 hours way from Lyon airport. It is one of the most beautiful things I’ve seen in my life. The most popular activity there is mountain walking/climbing. On my last day in Meribel, I did an 8 hour walk up to a mountain called Gebroula that has large massive glaciers on it.
I stayed in the Alpes for 10 days then we drove down to Cannes! The South of France. It’s just like Miami beach, just way hotter! The apartment that we stayed in had a beautiful view of the mediterranean sea. The Cannes film festival is one of the most popular events that occur in this city. People travel all around the world to come to this festival; all the big stars, directors and film producers attend this huge event!
We did some shopping in Cannes and ate amazing seafood since we were located right next to the sea. One day we rented a boat and traveled around the islands. My family and I went swimming in water. The water in Cote D’Azur was a beautiful dark blue and it felt amazing swimming in it. The weather was sunny during our entire trip! We even went down to Monaco, Monte-Carlo for a day! Monaco is one of the richest places in the world! The city is so beautiful, it is a very mountainous place also located along the sea. There were so many luxurious cars such as Rolls Royce, Porsche, Ferrari, Lamborghini’s and many more.
One day we went out to the Hotel Du Cap-Eden-Roc. It is one of the fanciest and most expensive hotels in the world! It had an amazing view of the sea (of course) and was beautiful. All the famous stars stay at this hotel during the Cannes film festival.
Hope you enjoyed reading it! More to come.
