France on Film - Travel Tuesday

This weeks travel tuesday is about Laura's time living and working in Nice in the South of France. In 2009 I spent a few wonderful month living on the French Rivera working in a vibrant converted Monastery which had been turned into a hotel which was perched on a hill over-looking the city of Nice. The Hotel attracted mainly young travels and language exchange students and I made some great friends, before moving on to exploring other parts of europe. The South of France is really different to the hectic buzz of Paris and captures a really laid back but also luxurious feel to it, with lovely white sanded beaches, inspiring landscapes and lovely fresh baguettes from a bakery found on every corner. This will not be the last South of France post but in this post I wanted to share the photos I shot on my old film camera using black and white film, too this day I still use a lot of analogue film, especially when we travel...

I do miss the beautiful surroundings and the amazing beach, reminded me of South Africa a little bit with lovely little side streets filled with North African restaurants, we hope to go back soon and I cannot wait.

  3. These are photos are amazing! My first ever trip to Europe was first spent in Antibes, so the South of France will always be very special to me. I can't imagine how wonderful it must have been to live there for a while.
