St. Paul de Vence

Medieval hill town

overcast 10 °C

One day a couple weeks ago, we took the bus to St. Paul de Vence - a small village known for its tiny cobbled walkways, abundance of artists, and it's situation on a lovely hilltop with a view of the ocean. It's a tourist attraction, for sure, but it's nice to be able to avoid most crowds by going on a Thursday in November :) Gave nice vibrancy to the vines all changing colour too!

Outside the village, there is a large area for men playing boules - our bocce.

We sat in the afternoon sun at a cafe after wandering around and had a glass of wine.

Tomorrow, we're off to Milan to play an indoor tournament with our team - Ziggles. Ziggles is actually sort of a play on words - the eagle is the representative animal of Nice, so Ziggles is like the French trying to say "the eagles" with a french accent - "ze eeggles". :)

Weather has been getting wetter - yesterday it was a full-on downpour for hours. Time to invest in an umbrella for the winter.
