we must carry it with us or we find it not

Le Petit Train ...


I love these "Petit Trains." Here in Monaco this little red train was waiting for me -way up on the cliff of the old town -only about 6euros and what a fab way to do a bit of sight-seeing - certainly better than walking!!


Down in Cannes however- I had a choice either the white petit train for a sort of "History Tour" which included the older parts of Cannes or a " Croisette tour" on the blue train - this travelled the trail of the rich & famous

Luxury hotels,beautiful beaches,luxurious yachts, Palm Beach Casino.
of course I took them both - who wouldn't !!


Viva! Le Petit Train

Sarah - no that carousel is in "la plus belle ville" Avignon - I was waiting for the petit train, it was twilight time & the lights on this beautiful carousel had just come on - magical!! I love the carousel near Sacre Coeur as well.

What fun!
I think I once rode one of these through the vineyards om Bordeaux? I can't remember...I wanted to jump out right away..no patience to sit it out till the end, though in Monaco this may be the best way to go..

I loved France until they told me about Johhny DEPP and Leslie CARON.
So sad Nice and Cannes are going to hell l with " SS".
