Riding the Nice ferris wheel

In Nice, we came across a beautiful ferris wheel, or Grande Roue in French. As we attempted to go up all tall things on our trip, we hopped on to see the view from the top. However, from living in over-safety conscious Australia, I was worried about the lack of safety harnesses, railings and the flimsy door to the car once we got in – especially since it went quite high!

I found a list of some nice 360 images of the Ferris Wheel here too:  http://www.360cities.net/image/ferris-wheel-nice-france#115.93,16.46,110.0

The old town in Nice, France

I loved wandering around the streets of the old town in Nice, France. The colours of the buildings are so vibrant compared to the dull gray of our high-rises in Perth and other modern big cities. This image reminds me of the narrow streets, the colours and how close the buildings were to each other.

Here’s a view of an old building up into the clear blue sky in Nice, France.  It was a clear day, but it was cold!
