Each and every time my friends and I decide to take an excursion out of Nice I have the same shocking reaction to the train prices. I can't help but thinking that paying such a cheap fare is some sort of French scam. Here we are visiting beautiful towns along the Cote d'azur that have turquoise waters, beautiful cliffs and high end restaurants and my round trip ticket cost 13 euros? Say what?! Maybe it was the 'American' in me that compelled me to believe that this was all too good to be true. Fortunately, it was not a scam and I found myself swimming in warm waters and dancing among half naked bodies (ice cream cone in hand) on the beach of Cannes. C'est la vie!
