↠ Last week, two friends of mine from college visited me at home, in Monaco. Scrambling to show them around the touristy parts of town, I also had to show them around my favorite spots on the French Riviera, one of them being a vast lookout on top of the old Èze village, which overlooks Èze, of course, but also Villefranche-sur-Mer, and Nice. You can even spot Nice Airport’s runways from up there!
On a morning hike, we were greeted by eerie fog. Cornering the cliffs, while the fog engulfed them, was one of my favorite parts of the hike. It very quickly reminded me of Caspar David Friedrich’s romantic painting “The Wanderer above the Sea of Fog”. The wanderer gazes into the sea of fog, contemplating the unknown.
What a great start to our morning!
