It was a sunny August day in 2006 when I took a day trip to Monte Carlo, Monaco. It was unlike any place I had been before. Stunning and full of wealth, but also calm and friendly. There are places you go that are so expensive that you don’t spend a cent, you just walk, look and listen.
The changing of the guard here was so different to London (the only other one that I have seen). They walk right by you. Up close, no huge gates and fences in the way. It felt more welcoming.
I remember taking the bus up to the top of a hill and sitting on a park bench with a peach I bought in Nice. It would have been a picture perfect scene, but a wasp decided he wanted my peach so the scene was more of me darting wasp (which from a far just looked like I was dancing around the park bench, haha). I wonder if I would remember it like I do without that wasp? Probably not.
I don’t like to get caught in the past too much, it’s no fun. But I do sometimes like to look back on the moments and the places and remember what fun they were. I may share a few more with you here.
