Hi from "NiceLife"
I'm Andrew and with my wife I share my time between my London home and Nice, where we've had our own place in the city centre for the last six years. We fell in love with the French Riviera and go as often as permits.
London looks less and less attractive over time, while Nice just gets better and better - especially now the tramworks are finished.
Though I do drive, I prefer to see everything and go everywhere the Riviera has to offer without driving, so figuring out public transport is where I part company with the usual travel solution - car rental.
Among my collection of life's boy scout badges I am a "Local Expert" for Nice over at TripAdvisor.com (over 1,100 posts and counting) and I keep more detailed travel tips on the Riviera over on my 500+ pages on Virtualtourist.com where I am delighted to have had over 175,000 page hits (search member: "NiceLife"). Along the way I have kept tabs on the Riviera's rich and famous residents, past and present, ranging from the late General Mobutu to the very current pop singer Bono, on Roman Abramovich's "Navy" in Antibes,and the colourful history of Monaco's royal family - with pictures!
