Hi there.

Favourite date? I meant companion, but now that you asked......favourite date time would be a good question too.

Paris to Nice? Wonderful choice!! In May when it's just the right temperature......wonderful breakfast in Paris, on the balcony overlooking the hustle bustle of the Latin Quartier..train to Nice......get off the train in Nice and head down to the beautiful shoreline for a stroll to find a cafe table to sit and enjoy the stunning scenery over a carafe of exquisite wine. How's that??

Self-actualization......we all have glimpses of it everyday. It would be nice if it lasted longer though now wouldn't it?
