Today I woke up at 6 so I could get in the shower nice and early. Breakfast was at 7:15, bags to coach at 7:45, and then we left at 8 to make our way to Antibes. After driving for about three hours, we stopped in Avignon to see the Palais des Papes and get some lunch. Jane, Veronica, Serena, DJ, Andrew and I ate at a little outdoor restaurant. I got cheese ravioli that was really good, but we ran out of time, so I didn't get to finish it.

After driving for a few more hours, we stopped in Grasse for our included tour of Fragonard Perfumery. I'm not a big fan of perfume, and just being in there gave me a headache, so the most amusing part for me was watching Kane stuff free samples into Matt's pocket and seeing how long it took him to notice (It took a while). Quite a few people ended up buying perfume, so I guess that's why Contiki makes us go there. The tour only took about half an hour, so it could have been much worse.

Then it was only about a half an hour drive to get to our campsite in Antibes. I was rooming with Serena, Jane, and Veronica again. Dinner was at 6, and we had a chance to try frogs' legs. They just tasted like chicken and had lots of bones. Mitch had to get a mustache drawn on and wear a beret to demonstrate how to eat them, haha. The actual dinner was serve-yourself wraps, which were pretty good. After dinner, my plan was going to be to do laundry, but I had no change and reception was already closed for the night, so I ended up just charging up my electronics and going to bed.
