For those of you who don't know, I got married on April 28th, which is part of the reason why I've not posted since the beginning of April. It's been an overwhelmingly busy season but in the best way possible. We embarked on our honeymoon the day after the wedding. Anil had wanted an island honeymoon, but you know me. We grew up on a tropical island, so I opted out of the tropical honeymoon and somehow convinced Anil to go along with my Euro-plan. One can never get enough of Europe. We spent a week in the South of France and within that 2 days in London, then a week in Paris and within that 2 days in Germany so Anil could finally meet my German side of the family! I hadn't been to the Côte d'Azur and Monaco since I was 16, so it was like seeing the South of France with a fresh perspective again. It was such a wonderful trip, especially since it was Anil's first time to Europe. Seeing the wonder in his eyes and the awe on his face made for an even better trip. But I mean, it was a honeymoon. Two weeks with my favorite person? It doesn't get much better.
Monaco was just as ritzy and oozing with glamor as I remember it. Here we were standing outside the famed Casino Monte-Carlo. During my first time to Monte Carlo 9 years ago I was only 16, so I wasn't old enough to enter, but now at 25, we made it a point to go inside just to say we did. I'm neither a fan of nor have a penchant for gambling though, so no slots or Black Jack for me.
