Never without my oats

When in France you can’t deny yourself a croissant…

Delicious dinner, the sweet potato is even sweeter here!

What an amazing first day it was! I got up and surprised Sarah and after lots of cuddles we had a delicious breakfast all of us. Of course I had porridge, because breakfast without oats is just not really breakfast in my world:-P I did have a slightly smaller portion so I could indulge in a freshly baked croissant and a bit of baguette (when in France!).

After breakfast I needed my daily dose of movement and exercise so I headed down to Promenade des Anglaise and ended up running 6km. I’ve never particularly enjoyed running but it’s something about being down there by the sea and everyone walking, running cycling, you just want to be a part of it. The run was quite tough (more mentally than anything else, after a while I get slightly bored if I don’t stay focused on a goal) but I got through it and had a little mini break by Negresco (an sbolutely stunning hotel down here) and then ran the same way back.

It is quite cold in the air still but the sun is hot so after while I was sweating and had to strip off to cool down. I didn’t pack any shorts stupidly enough so leggings will have to do for this trip (unless I find some I like). Oh well, I’ll survive. I finished off with some push ups, burpees and other fun things at the end before stretching whilst overlooking the sea. It felt great!

In the afternoon we headed in to central Nice for lunch. I had a delicious Nicoise salad, the portion was tiny though so it was more like a snack for me hehe. It felt amazing sitting with the sun in your face watching people stroll by on their Sunday walks. Being in the warmth makes me feel alive. I definitely live in the wrong part of the world! The dream would be to live somewhere a bit warmer one day. We sat at the restaurant for ages just chatting and relaxing.

When it started getting chillier we got the bus back to the flat where we spent the evening reading and relaxing some more. For dinner I made Anki and I salads whilst Sarah had something else. The vegetables taste so much better than what we could ever get further up north in Europe. The sweet potato was so incredibly sweet and flavourful. It just felt like sweet potato flavour times ten. Delicious!
