Getting from Nice to Monaco by train is easy and much fun. There are numerous trains that run throughout the day from early morning until late at night.
This trip is a popular one, so expect the trains to be crowded, especially during rush hour when commuters are heading to or from Monaco.
Monte Carlo Friends
The journey to Monte-Carlo takes around 20 minutes, with five stops along the way, at Nice Riquier, Villefranche Sur Mer, Beaulieu Sur Mer, Eze, and Cap D’Ail. If you have enough time, some of these places are also worth a visit.

Interesting Fact about Scotland
Scots have around 400 different words to describe the weather. And most of them seem to describe the typical Scottish weather: rain. If you really want to get poetic about the grey skies then learn these simple words: “smirr” is a type of ‘fine rain or drizzle’, “dreich” is ‘wet, dull and gloomy’ and “drookit” is ‘extremely wet’.
If you’ve been to Italy, you’ve probably been to Rome. It’s got most of the sites and attractions that come to mind when people even THINK of Italy: the Colosseum, the Pantheon, the Forum, Saint Peter’s Basilica. The city’s cobblestone streets, medieval architecture, and Renaissance-era fountains are (literally) what romance is made of.

Have you heard of Baia? It was the Las Vegas of ancient times, attracting people from far and wide to its state-of-the-art baths and nightlife spaces. Powerful icons of ancient times were known to frequent Baia, from Nero to Cicero to Julius Caesar. If you want to walk in their footsteps now, however, you’ll need some scuba gear.
THE SUNKEN CITY OF BAIA IN NAPOLI
Because of Baia’s location over natural volcanic vents, its water level slowly rose to swallow its once majestic buildings. Saracens sacked it by 1500, but some meaningful relics still remain under its waters to this day. Take time to visit Baia for an unparalleled perspective on antiquity. You’ll feel like it’s been frozen in time! It’s truly like no other place.
Farm stays in Bavaria seem to be very popular. You can rent a room or furnished apartment on a farm and experience some of the farm life. This year we stayed on a farm, near Chiemsee, and had a lovely time. All the villages in the Bavarian alps are lovely so you probably can’t go wrong wherever you pick.
Another nice area is Bayerischer Wald on Czech border. A few years ago we stayed a week in Lalling in Bayerischer Wald.

THE SECOND LARGEST CHAIR IN THE WORLD 😮 😻
Perhaps one of the most random entries on the list is the world’s second-largest chair in the town of Lucena, near Córdoba. España briefly succeeded with this eight-storey high, over 26-metre creation, but was soon cruelly pipped to first place by an Austrian chair.
SIERRA NEVADA (SNOWED MOUNTAIN RANGE)
Drive along Europe’s highest road for snow, then head an hour south to sunbathe on the Costa del Sol.
It is a hybrid super sports car that will only seat two. It is an automobile with beauty, comfort and modernity. The Lambo family loves to surprise its customers and fans by innovating its models and creating new ones pretty often.
This is something I never thought I would contemplate in my lifetime – an electric Lamborghini. Some might call this whole idea sacrilegious, but the Italian supercar company knows that electric and hybrid cars are the future, and they don’t intend on being left behind.
This year the Terzo Lamborghini is initiating another revolution in speed, digitalizations and super-advanced mechanizations of the automovil.
This model is a fast most beautiful spaceship on earth!
It is actually a concept of the Terzo Millennio and it will inevitably offer far more visual impact than a fully formed production vehicle.
That said, we hope Lambo keeps as much of the original design as possible when creating its first hybrid.
Apparently, it’s codenamed the LB48H, and it could very well preview a replacement for Lambo’s current flagship model, the mighty Aventador.
So far, Lamborghini is keeping its cards close to the chest.
The Lambo company teamed up with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology last year in order to “rewrite the rules on super sports cars,” and the Lambo Terzo Millennio, an electric hypercar concept with some really bold ideas under its hood, is the result of this collaboration.
United States President, Abraham Lincoln, loved all animals, especially cats. He loved cats so much that his wife once said that cats were her husband’s hobby.
The then, Secretary of State William Seward, gave two kittens on Lincoln as a White House gift. The President loved to spend hours just petting the cats and talking to them.
He fed his kitties at the table. One time he used a gold fork to do that, which was too much for Mrs. Lincoln. His response?
“If a gold fork was good enough for former President Buchanan, it’s good enough for Tabby.”

Some cats are ambidextrous. Although 40 to 50% of female cats are typically right-pawed, while male cats are typically left-pawed: Psychologists Deborah Wells and Sarah Millsopp of Queen’s University Belfast tested 42 house cats — 21 males and 21 females — to determine whether they favored their right or left paws when performing tasks of varying difficulty. Their report on the results has been accepted for publication in the journal Animal Behavior of Science Direct (play with your kitties and let me know if this is true. I did it and couldn’t prove it, 🤩 but then again, I’m not a Psychologist).
SO SORRY dog lovers: A cat’s cerebral cortex (the part of the brain in charge of cognitive information processing) has 300 million neurons, compared with a dog’s 160 million. (BTW, (I love dogs too 🐶).

A cat’s jaw can’t move sideways, that is why a cat can’t chew large chunks of food.
There is no magic pill to success. You need to work hard and adore what you do if you want to accomplish your purpose in life.
It is annoying to hear people complain about money all the time and how hard everything is, but they don’t do anything about it.
Everything worthwhile in this life is not easy to acquire. It requires effort, knowledge and true passion.
DON’T BE LAZY and WAKE UP!
When you really want to achieve your goals and the passion you have inside is strong, then 24 hours are not enough. You can’t wait for the new day to start, to see the dawn and get ready to work on your objective.
But if you are lazy or you are not sincere about acquiring success, then every little rock in your path is going to be a huge obstacle to continue.
Lazy people want to be on Facebook and other social media all the time sharing their fake lives, or they want to spend the day playing games and do nothing productive.
FIRST OF ALL:
You need to have a vision of where you want to go, if you don’t have a goal where you wish to go you will end up anywhere and nowhere. Organize, make a plan and then go for it, full force and do not let anybody and nothing to stop you from getting where you want to be.
Resting and allowing yourself to goof around is simply not allowed for “go getters” . Winners don’t know the meaning of a long vacation because they are busy working on their purpose in life, their goal, their objective.
