Get social

Monaco. From this point, we went closer to the coast, figuring that it's not every day that we get to see Monaco from this point of view.
.
We visited once by car a few years ago. I remember we paid a lot on the highway. And the parking, if I remember well, was 32 euro for less than half a day, which was shocking to me, but for Mathieu was normal, as he had Paris instead of Bucharest as a reference. Surprisingly, the price to eat and drink something for lunch wasn't any different from France (but we chose a normal terrace, nothing fancy).
.
We'll probably return (probably by bus next time) because I'd like to visit the Musée Océanographique de Monaco.
.
We didn't stop with Puzzle here. Not only was it expensive to spend the night in Monaco's port, but I had also read in "Sailing There - Cruising Across Europe and the Mediterranean" by Patricia Vellinga that the marina is very deep and not that well protected.

Most people want to be just in the result and not in the process, and it's in the process where you realize who deserves to be in the result.
