Patrick dropped me off at the train station in Cannes just before 9am. I went inside & bought my one way ticket to Ventimiglia, Italy. I was not able to purchase my ticket to Florence, as this has to be done in Italy, because Italy has their own train system.
The 9:12am train arrived & I boarded, making sure to sit on the right side so I could have a view of the ocean. The scenery was mesmerizing. We stopped at Nice, Monte Carlo, ...
... later or another way. Found this website to car-share and it fell through. Then no flights were available. So it leaves me in Florence. My CC is maxed out and Debit Card got frozen for what they thought was fraud. Decided to forget about Barcelona and go straight to Paris. Attempting to talk to fraud agency and fly out tomorrow.

... After the meal, I went to purchase some bottles to take back home. I talked in Italian with the older man at the counter and, as a thank you, he gave me an extra bottle of wine. Apparently it pays to speak in Italian and be courteous. My hard work learning this language is paying off!
The weekend was truly enjoyable and I hope to have a chance to visit this summer when I have free-time on the weekends.
Wishing you all the best,
