Over the last couple of weeks we’ve been busy getting into the Christmas spirit “à la Riviera”, going to Christmas markets in vineyards and villages, exploring medieval towns decked out with festive lights and enjoying the sunshine in Nice.  Here is a small selection of images from these visits.


2016 has been pretty much written off by many as a hell of a year and it’s true many shocking and horrific things have taken place both locally and world wide but closer to home, for my immediate family, we have had some very good times with plenty of travel involved.  On that personal note I’d like to wish all my readers a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, and thanks for the support this year.
