Travel diary: Cannes
I went to Cannes at the end of summer to spend the weekend and I loved the city, it was exactly what I needed to relax. These past few months have been extremely difficult with this whole Covid19 situation. The restrictions imposed on us and the fear that the media and some people around us spread make this whole situation a lot worse than the virus itself. I am psychologically tired and I believe that a lot of people are feeling the same, this due to the great amount of contradictory information that we receive, it’s hard to know who or what to trust.
That is why I decided to go to the South of France to change my environment and to be close to the beach because it always relaxes me.
I booked an Airbnb in the Suquet, an historical zone of Cannes, and took the train from Gare de Lyon in Paris to Cannes. Even though we had to wear a mask in the train I started to feel a little bit of my stress leaving me because of the beautiful view I saw through my window. France is a beautiful country and after taking this trip I felt like exploring other cities.
As soon as I arrived in Cannes I felt a completely different mood, people were a lot more relaxed that in Paris, that’s one of the reasons my stay went so well but the best of it all was the fact that the studio that I booked was 5min from the beach so I got to spend most of my days in a bathing suit with my feet on the sand…pure bliss.
Being able to watch the sunset with the sound of the waves, feeling the slight sea breeze that brings the smell of the sea is one of my defenitions of a perfect moment, it’s something so little and so big at the same time that just makes you appreciate life more.
I crossed the famous “la Croisette” on foot, I explored the picturesque streets of the "le Suquet" and saw the wonderful view of the port of Cannes from the Notre-Dame de-l’Esperance church.
I ate a lot and well and felt that overall I was very well received.
I loved Cannes and I hope to go back there in a near future.
What about you, have you ever been in Cannes? What did you think?
