During our trip to the French Riviera we visited the world's second smallest country Monaco (only the Vatican City is smaller). It was my first time to be there and I see the state as a very special place! When I read in my guidebook that it has the world's highest life expectancy at almost 90 years, and the lowest unemployment rate, I thought this wouldn't be the worst place to live!

When we went up to the Grimaldi Palace we had a fantastic view over Monaco and because all the high-rise buildings with their different colors, the state reminded me of a mosaique. 

We strolled through the city and I had a look into the famous Hotel Paris next to the Monte Carlo Casino. I went into the lobby and it was really very magnificent and exquisite with glossy lusters, Florence marble and wonderful flowers. Also, not the worst place to spend a night,...

Next to the Hotel Paris there is a shop of one of my favorite luxury brands: Van Cleef & Arpels! They really have wonderful jewelrys! And in the show window I threw a glace at one georgeous piece of the limited edition of 15 sets of jewels Van Cleef & Arpels has created for the charities of H.S.H. Princess Charlene of Monaco. This special collection hinges on a subtle reinterpretation of the iconic Alhambra motif, which was birthed in 1968. The wonderful pieces are with pavé diamonds and turquoises and are really beautiful!!

Oh, georgeous Monaco, I will be back!!

    I really enjoyed beeing there and you also traveld and I think Monaco is a really interesting place to be. But if you wanted to live there forever, they would only took you if you would be pretty rich. (half of the foreign people there are millionairs!)
