Nice for the night - part 2

After a little relax back in our room we headed out for a bite to eat.

Too be honest we were still slightly full from our pizza earlier and starting to feel sleepy from the early start and lunch time beer!

getting old *insert laughing emoji* I remember the days when a lunchtime beer was just the beginning, haha

We headed back along the Promenade des Anglais and not too far along we stopped at the restaurant Les Jardins Du Capitole.

Tempted by the set menu we sat down and were eager to get started!

Mark started with the snails and I had the french onion soup. 

Apparently the snails were really good! "I'll take your word for it babe!"

The soup was delicious!! Totally scrummy with a very generous sized, cheese crust on the top.

Stuffed after our starters, we still managed to demolish our main of  Sirloin steak and french fries.

Finishing off with a very chocolaty chocolate mousse each, we literally couldn't move! 

Two very stuffed and happy bellies, we then practically rolled ourselves back to the hotel!

Not wanting the night to end just yet, we decided to have a nose around the hotels gardens.

Chairs and plant pots all lit up and making the place feel all enchanting and magical! My iPhone just doesn't do it justice!

Apologies for the graininess! 

The next morning we woke up quite early and were pretty much the first at breakfast,

And what a spread!

Bacon, sausages, eggs, croissants, pastries, cakes, cereals, cheeses, cold meats, tea, coffees, juices, the lot!

Again, we were stuffed!

There seems to be a theme to this trip, haha!

We had a couple of hours to kill before heading to the airport - me for my flight back to the UK and Mark to have some meetings.

Instead of just hanging around the room we decided to go out and get some fresh air. One last stroll along the Promenade des Anglais and a look at the beach.

Annoyingly I had left my camera in the safe! #bloggerfail but hopefully my phone managed to get some OK snaps! 

Before we knew it, it was time to pack our final bits and check out of the hotel.

Off to the airport we went.

I said goodbye to Mark and headed my way through the busy security area and onto the lounge.

Our stay in Nice was very short, but it was sweet.

Even though I was in complete awe of the historic french buildings and loved tasting real french onion soup, I was a little disappointed that Nice wasn't as 'glamorous' as what I thought it would be.

It also seemed a little run down and tired. Maybe it was the time of year, I'm not sure.

We found Nice fairly pricey too, but I guess that goes for any city around the world and I'm just used to the extremely purse friendly Spanish prices at the mo!

All in all though I thoroughly enjoyed my little trip.

Au revoir mon ami

Blogging tips ~ Basic/Beginner

~ Disclaimer - this post is just a light hearted look at the very basic blogging tips. I do not have high DA or high stats, but I thought some of the things I have picked up over years may be helpful. Even if just one person takes one thing I've shared as useful info, then this post is worthwhile. This post also contains affiliate links ~ I'm laughing at myself a little bit writing this post as I want to be very clear that I'm not an award winning blogger, I don't have a high da score and I don't really have many page views at the moment. You're probably wondering to yourself why am I even writing this post if I'm not a far flung award winning blogger? Well, this is it. I call myself a blogger, because well I have a blog and I document stuff. I've had my blog for over eight years now and even though I haven't had a breakthrough (yet) I have picked up a couple of things along the way. I have also been asked before by friends about starting a blog, so

Mil Palmeras

Happy Thursday guys, hope you're all well. I'm just popping on here to show you a few pictures I snapped quickly today while we were at Mil Palmeras Beach. We popped to Mercadona this morning, well more lunchtime(ish) as we are sleeping in so much lately, but that's for another day. So, we picked up a few bits for the weekend and grabbed one of their sushi boxes for our lunch on the go. fyi , the best supermarket sushi I've had! After our trip to Mercadona we headed for Leroy Merlin in La Zenia as we needed to get some more bags of sand and some gravel too for our little diy garden project. I say little, but it's turning into quite the construction! Keep an eye on my  insta stories   over the weekend for updates. En-route to Leroy's we stopped off at Mil Palmeras to eat our sushi by the sea. Mil Palmeras has always been one of our favourite places here on the Costa Blanca South. Actually it was one of the first places we went to after the lockdown last year.  To

How to do your cars ITV/MOT in Spain

  ~ Disclaimer - this post is not associated with any ITV centres in Spain or anything that they maybe connected with them. I am also not a car mechanic of any sorts and I would always advise to seek professional advice. This post is simply sharing my experience of an ITV ~ It's that time when Marks car is due it's ITV, which is similar to the UK's MOT. In Spain your car has it's first ITV check when it's 4 years old. Then every 2 years up until the car is 10, then it's checked every year. When living in another country and not really knowing the lingo, these type of things can seem a little daunting at times and it may feel easier to just throw money at things to get someone to do it for you.  Which I think happens a lot when it comes to getting your cars ITV. A lot of garages offer a service where they will do a pre-itv check and then take your car to the test centre and do it for you. Sounds great doesn't it. Which it is don't get me wrong at all, it&
