Greetings! Here is a long overdue trip report. I took a vacation in July and visited several cities mainly in Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur. We also stopped by Monaco and crossed over to Ventimiglia, Italy. The routing of this trip was LAX to NCE via LHR on BA 278 and 344 in Club World/Europe, TGV from Aix-en-Provence to Paris in First Class, CDG to LHR on BA 327 in Club Europe, LCY to JFK via SNN on BA 001 (which we missed...) Club World London City.

We stayed in Nice for 5 nights and used it as our homebase for day-trips along the coast. We visited Nice, Ventimiglia Italy, Menton, Monaco, Cannes, Antibes, and St. Tropez along the coast. Then, we headed up to the Valensole Plateau to see the lavenders, visited L'Occitane factory in Manosque, Avignon, and ended in Aix-en-Provence. We stayed in Paris for two days and London for one night. Basically, I didn't see much of Paris and London. Anyway, I'll let the pictures speak for themselves and will get into the details of how we missed BA 001. :)
