But nobody is paying me to sit on the beach in Nice or walk around the streets of Paris as a full blown tourist, so I’m back on the grind with a few low key meets in Italy that I hope will get the juices flowing again and put me back on track to finish the season strong. My diet of cappuccinos and croissants may have set me back a bit, but it was good for the soul and hopefully my civilian lifestyle didn’t take too much of a toll on my system.
Here are a few pictures from my mini break. I hung out with my friend Debbie, who had came to Berlin to see me compete and then was spending a little time seeing more of Europe. She let me tag along until I had somewhere else to be.
-Me on the streets of Nice. Cities in Europe are just so much cooler than our cities in the States.
-Me and the Debster at the beach.
-My favorite pastime. Reading a book…on the beach…under an umbrella. Life doesn’t get sweeter.
-View of the City
-Looking out over Monaco…contemplating how I can get enough money to live there!
-In Paris…being tourists.
-After all the normal shots of the Eiffel tower, we started getting silly with it.
-Drinking cappuccinos…another favorite pastime.
-Realizing the cappuccino is 6 euros!!
-Standing in the lobby of our hotel. You never realize when someone might be snapping a picture!
