I knew Monaco was one of the places Johnnie Bud was most looking forward to while visiting Europe, so we had to get a visit in before he had to return to North Carolina… even if that meant visiting on a Monday. We were a little underwhelmed at the lack of glitz and glamour… and any real activity at all… but maybe that can be attributed to visiting on a Monday afternoon and evening in January (the off-season).
Regardless of the lack of things to do, we took in some spectacular views, drooled over more impressive yachts, checked out a casino (SO very different than Vegas: slots and tables in different buildings, had to pay to get in, no free drinks, and less than 20 people in the casino playing at tables), strolled through the luxury shopping area, and hopped on the train back to Antibes with some great memories and pictures in tow. PS: It wasn’t all a total bust! While in the casino, I hit with $5 on 29… my birthday day. Show me the money!
