The last stop on our holiday was a day trip to the one and only country of Monaco.
Since we didn't have a rental car, we decided to hire a driver who doubled as our guide. Andreas, our lovely chauffeur for the day, drove us to our first stop. Chateau Eze: a gorgeous medieval town that sits atop a hill. 

We stopped at the legendary perfumery, Fragonard, and walked away with fabulous French perfumes.

After that we continued east to the most fabulous (and smallest) country I have ever been to: Monaco!

Monte Carlo Bay
Hotel Paris, the top rated & best hotel in the world

We spend the rest of the day lounging on the hot stones on the beach and soaking up the last of our Mediterranean sunshine. All in all it was an amazing trip with great food & great weather. Going home was a bit stressful-- it took us 3 flights with 3-4 hour layovers each stop until we finally landed at Seatac International. Jet lag was miserable, but it was definitely worth it!

I'm trying to decide where to visit next, any suggestions? xx
