The big finale to my time with friends in Europe, was to the French Riviera. This included a tour of a perfume factory, a climb to a hilltop garden in Eze, an exploration of the streets of Nice, a day trip to Monaco, and an Absinthe tasting in Antibes. I got to enjoy this trip with a close friend of mine since childhood. Together we got to experience what our fathers did when they traveled Europe together over 40 years ago. We skipped through the streets, shared cherries from the farmers market, danced on tables at a local bar and marveled on how lucky we were to be traveling in the same shoes as our dads.
