In honor of my blog’s 100th post, here’s a list I once kept secretly, that I now wish to share with the world!
When reading through you’ll discover it may just be another Bucket List, but this is in fact an excerpt from my real one that I keep hidden away in my Laptop’s files. :]
It ranges from places and events, to things I’ll need to try at least once, all of which I wish to complete before my time on this lovely planet is up. For convenience, they’re organized into where in the world they’d be done; by country.
So enjoy flicking through my secret list, it’s now yours too, and if you’re open to helping me complete anything on here, I’d love to know what you know; send me an email (ryanaubersonwalsh[@]hotmail.com). :]
This was the break from Italian food we all deserved.
WAIT! I know what you’re thinking… who could ever tire of pasta, pizza and a ton of mozzarella? Well, I can. After one and a half weeks gorging on stomach-expanding Carbonara’s and Capricosa’s, a break from our temporary diet was blissful…. and we all know how delicious French food can be. :] Think fresh bread, croissants and Beef Bourguignon.
So… this little chapter started when we arrived in Nice, France and spent two nights enjoying the city… my new favourite in France. However, the true gem was discovered on a day trip on the first day there: the Principality of Monaco. With a spotless city, gorgeous buildings and a view to die for, it quickly became my personal favourite. And with the world’s highest GDP per capita at $151,630, I think you’d understand me when I say they’ve clearly got the money to keep things looking pretty. ;]
Strangely though, because it’s the densely populated country in the world, the layout of the city is rather… chaotic, yet charming. Nestled between the Mediterranean and sheer drops, the mountain backdrop means that architecture is scaterred, with high-rises all over the joint, and highways jutting in and out from historic buildings… such as the highway overpass that crosses over a church! Bizarre! Yet fascinating. :]
That evening we headed into Old town Nice and dined like the french with a three course meal, entrée, main and dessert! Fantastique is all I can say. :]
The next morning we were on the move again… and for some details about that story… stay tuned. :p
