La Côte d’Azur

Descending down into la Côte d’Azur I met oncoming rally cars climbing up to another WRC rally site and I passed under tall Roman viaducts in picturesque mountainside towns. I deviated a bit from the marked Route des Grandes Alpes via a dark red gorge known as Cians and I had lunch along the Var. I spent a night on the Promenade des Anglais on the Nice waterfront at an amazing French military estate. Riding over the F1 starting grids in Monaco alongside the yachts and Ferrari's is a surreal moment as well. With roads and buildings high above you on the coastal hills and underground roundabouts and tunnels every which way the place is a bit daunting to say the least! There's a lot to say about the busy sights of the Côte D'Azur but I was soon just yearning to get back to the peaceful open roads of the Alpes.
