At last the big day has dawned; Mikey gets behind the wheel of another red demon (which has many similarities to The Baron back in Brisvegas) and takes it for a spin. The sun is shining, the birds are chirping, we've stocked up on our energy fuel and it's one hour to blast off - bring it on! The beast is a Ferrari F430 Spyder and the road to be driven is the one from Nice to Monaco via the hills. Alas you are no longer allowed to drive in the Monaco City limits, ...
... as you all know I'm the biggest Formula 1 fan and this small trip to Monaco was pretty much the whole reason why I booked this tour. Saw and walked on the streets that they have the actual race. Life changing! I can't believe I was actually there. Made it back to the hotel in enough time to get some good pics of the beach.

This time down the hill, but I was already an experienced hiker after the first walk. One drink later, we headed to one last bar at the HARBOUR! (are you joking with this up and down in high heels) Apart from the little marathon in between, we had a fun night out and it was nice to meet Pierre's guys.
