I dropped in on Meg’s Travels today while doing a bit of blog reading and came across her post on “Window Views“. I dragged my thoughts out of the dreamy Venice photos back to the first picture, a pretty flowered balcony which reminded me of a more recent holiday in Nice.
The streets in Nice were often narrow and the buildings quite tall but somehow the locals still managed to find a little premium space to enjoy the warm sunshine.
This busy little balcony for instance, was obviously well used, and very well cared for.
The hotels along the sea front had rooms with balconies, I’m guessing you would have to pay a fortune for the privilege of having one though.
Some of the poshest buildings in town had them,
But they weren’t always the prettiest, this old building with its balconies very much in need of a little TLC caught my eye when I spotted the border above the windows.
As for Venice, maybe I’ll be able to go again one day, in the meantime, I’ll just pop back to Meg’s travels and dream over her photos for a little longer.
More from before : my holiday in “Nice, France“, July 2012.
