We were staying to watch the International Fireworks Festival in Monaco. They have a competition throughout July – August and then the winner does the fireworks the night before their National Holiday. I think tonight was the first competitor. It was the Polish team. By the time Michael finished his foot spa there were only about 15 minutes until it started at 10pm. We tried to find a good spot but eventually stopped behind ...

Even though it was short and it rained on Saturday I fell in love with it. I can't wait to get to go back! I'm so excited because my next big trip is Spring Break with my parents!
