Mini Monaco Day Trip + Why I Love To Travel

Today I'm sharing a few snaps from our day trip to Monaco that we went along to while we were in Nice, there are only a few because my camera decided to let the side down, and so I thought I'd talk a little bit about why I love to travel as well.
Because it was a bit of a last minute decision, when we got to Monaco we had quite literally no idea which way to go or even what we were looking for, so we just walked straight and hoped for the best. Luckily we didn't get completely lost and spotted the water so just tried to walk in that general direction and try not to let the amount of stairs knacker us out before we even got to the bottom!
The sheer number of yachts when we got to the bottom was actually ridiculous and highlighted how different it was to Nice which was a lot more modest to say the least! Just a completely different lifestyle which you could tell within an hour of being there. But my god was it beautiful, everything was pristine and every building was just as pretty as the last. There were also so many cool cafe's on the waterfront, any excuse for ice-cream and iced coffee!
After stopping off for a refuel, we wandered around and made our way up to the Prince's Palace of Monaco to see the views from up there - if you're ever there and only have a few hours, then going up all the stairs right to the top is so so worth it.

Viewing everything from above also made it way easier when we were trying to work out how we would make our way back to the station later on! I really wish we had longer to spend here so we could have explored some more but as we were only on a weekend break, time was a bit tight. I guess that's all the more reason to go back!

So as you might have gathered from this post, the thing that I love most about travelling is the spontaneity of it. Going somewhere that you've never been before and not knowing what to expect, what or who you'll come across, and knowing that every trip you go on will change you in ways that you can't go back on. Even when you go somewhere and you've planned everything down to a t, I can guarantee you will end up doing things that you didn't expect or end up with a completely random favourite memory. So when I said at the beginning of this post that we had no idea where we were when we got there (with no internet or google maps), it was a pretty great feeling that you don't get often enough.

It's just a great way to feel fulfilled and in my opinion the best thing to spend my money on (food is a close second in case you were wondering) and once uni is over I plan to be doing a lot more of it.

Let me know below what your favourite thing about travelling is, I'd really love to know!
