Italia-France

Just another stroll through Europe checking out historic sites, eating delicious food, and having a pretty good time.

Seemingly, no time had passed since my last European adventure, but what the heck, I was back at it again taking in new places and cultures. This has been my most ambitious outing yet and it was nothing short of fantastic, I have now checked off a few more places on my list.

Cars in 1 Hour

Hanging out in front of Monte-Carlo Casino was unreal. Virtually every minute, there was a different sports / super / hyper / luxury car rolling in. Basically a free autoshow with everything on the card, old and new.
