Hi babes! Hope you’ve had a wonderful start to your weekend. On Wednesday (our last day) the sun finally came back to see us. One day without it was far too long. I woke up quite early and caught the most incredible sunrise. It’s breathtaking when the sun’s reflection sparkles in the sea.
I decided to go for a last run before heading back to Glasgow the nest day. On my previous run I ran to Negresco (the hotel), stopped there for a minute and then ran back. This time I was tempted to see how I would do without the rest. It was tough but I did it and got a better time because of it. I was so proud. I can definitely see a difference in my stubbornness when it comes to running. I refuse to stop, before I used to try and find any excuse to stop and take a break. I’ve also learnt that it’s easier to continue running than stopping and starting constantly. Of course my fitness has improved which will make a big difference too but I’m also more used to being pushed through my workouts from training at Gym G5 and this has taught me that I always can manage more than I think.
At the end of the run I did some exercises in my usual spot by the sea and then sat down to just take it all in one last time before leaving.
Around lunch we got the bus to the harbour (I’d never been there before strangely enough). We were going to cycle but the wind was blowing very hard in the wrong direction that it would’ve been a struggle. The harbour was nice and all but unfortunately there seemed to be some form of construction going on and we couldn’t really see much.
We walked back along the coast towards the old town and stumbled across an incredible view over Nice and a huge #ILOVENICE sign. Of course we had to get some touristy photos there.
We ended up having lunch in the sun at one of our absolute favourite restaurant Le Safari (it’s always busy not matter what time during the year it seems). We were lucky to get a table straight away. Anki and I both had the swordfish they had on as a special and it was seriously one of the best things I’ve ever had. It was cooked to absolute perfection and I can’t explain with words how delicious and fresh it tasted. Anki and Sarah ordered in a chocolate cake dessert which we all had some bites of and it was heavenly too. If you are in Nice you just need to go here. Another restaurant I really love I Bistro d’Antoine (definitely up there as some of the best food I’ve ever had too), check it out!
We sat in the sun for quite a while at the restaurant and then headed home. We walked for a while along the windy beach and then caught the bus. Anki’s got issues with her foot and can’t walk for too long, such a shame. I really hope it gets better soon, she loves going for walks and can’t at the moment really. Back at the flat I sat for a while wrapped up in a blanket on the balcony with my book and some tea. Yes I’m that desperate for the sun:-P
I couldn’t have asked for a better last day (okay, maybe slightly less windy hehe). Sorry for posting this so late. I’m usually a bit more active on Instagram if you’re not already following me there (click here to get to my profile).
Time for me to go to sleep, night night xxx
