The reason we decided to go to Southern France was so simple: It should be in Europe because my wife had never been there and this was the best chance to spend two weeks there, and it should be warm enough in the middle of December. Candidates were pinned down to two: Barcelona and Nice. And we chose the latter because it’s France. Simple. We both never speak French, but we felt France should be the first place to visit for her. Just felt. So, here are few footprints of first several days in Nice and Aix-en-Provence. We will head back to Nice and have a Christmas holiday there and finally enjoy Paris at the end of the one and only honeymoon.
