Another weekend, another roadtrip – Monaco that is for this one! A little mix of business, fun, food, proper views, an amazing atmosphere and just a fantastic roadbuddy!
We decided to drive to the Côte d’Azur via Italy and Swiss (well, actually the Bmw navigation system decided to give us that route). From the rainy Belgium to the snowy Alps to the sunny French Riviera, more then enough beautiful sights during the road down!
I couldn’t wish for a better roadbuddy aka co-pilot then this lady!
It’s all about the roadtrip and it doesn’t matter if you’re stuck in a traffic jam or miss the right exit, these views are all just worth it. Talking about the most ridiculous subjects and having the most stupid laughs all ride long is something I’ll sign for every time.
Having a typical French breakfast at the Cafe De Paris is a must-do, beside the tasty croissants there’s a fleet of supercars passing by, win-win!
From Porsche 918’s to the newest Ferraris and an overload of Aston Martins, even spotted a Ferrari Enzo but I was too late to have a picture of it (read: sad face).
The weather and those perfect temperatures as in 22 degrees were just perfect, they contribute amazingly to the atmosphere which Monaco is delivering. You can not not like it.
Strolling around the city and seeing the link to the Formula 1 track, curbstones all around the city, F1 heritage everywhere you look.
The Port Hercule where all the yachts are is just on another level. Nowhere in Europe you’ll see so many and big yachts. The Dilbar (which was actually there the day before) and the ‘A’ yacht are only a few of the many famous ones which dock very often to the Monaco port.
And who would I be if I didn’t snap a little picture of these 2 beauties in the harbour with some fancy looking boats on the background. (Got waaaay to many shots but will share these on my Instagram over the next few days/weeks)
And shooting makes us hungry! Little snack at the port – yes, we love food!
The day after we decided to go for a little breakfast on an abandoned beach just outside Monaco. It was by this little alley we ended up at the beach, pretty cool!
A couple of tasty donuts and a big coffee from Starbucks was just perfect as we were still full from dinner the night before haha!
Jup, the little black spot on the photo above is us. It couldn’t be anymore perfect as this, hearing the sound of the waves and seeing the beautiful blue/greenish water was everything we just needed.
It doesn’t get any better then this, wish I could have breakfast here every day!
No words needed! Azure blue water!
Monaco things, a Cars & Coffee on a sunday with some classic Ferraris, A Mclaren Senna, Porsche 918 and some Lamborghinis… I had worse sundays.
Just a typical sight when you’re walking around the city. A perfect family wagon with an AMG badge and the classic Huracan spider, what’s not to like?
And Margaux’s G-wagon fetish was well feeded during the weekend! This Brabus G with camo wrap was probably the best one around! The sound was even more amazing!
When you walk in the city or just sit on your balcony at your room, you just hear supercars all day long. It’s hard to explain but the luxury cars creeping all over the city create such an amazing vibe, motivates me a lot and sparks many ideas.
With my motivation and ideas work-wise on point, I got energy kicking in hard!
Bars and good drinks all over the city! Mojitos and Cosmopolitans coming our way! With Nobu in the city we went for dinner over at the restaurant. Read all about it at Margauxs blog over the next few days!
Walking home is never dull at Monaco, ne-ver!
Sightseeing is one thing but heading over to the Tête-du-chien is the best thing you can do when you’re around Monte Carlo. You won’t be disappointed, take my word.
A full overview over the city and a breathtaking view!
Monaco on the left and Nice on the right side!
Time to head home and get back to work, fully energised and many ideas loading in my head! We’ll be back soon for another trip very soon!
I can’t get tired of this sight! My 2 babes looking pretty as always!
On the way home we stopped for a quick picture at the historic Reims racetrack, I’ll drop some more pictures of this in my next blogpost. Stay tuned folks, thanks for reading!
