Eurotrip. Summer. 2005.

Cannes, France |

I really didn't know what to expect when I went to Cannes. I think I was anticipating that it'd be like Monaco. Ritzy.. lined with yachts and mountainous bluffs. Part of that was right.. Cannes is laced with huge shiney white yachts on crystal blue waters. It is however just the opposite of Nice. It's not really a place where many french people live.. it's probably your exact mental image of a south of france beach town. Expensive couture boutiques are the majority of stores that make up the town. There is one main street that hosts expensive shopping.. the beach, cruise ships all around and of course.. the Film Festival Theatre (which I was there for). Beautiful town.. but not much to do. It's a nice place to relax if you've been travelling a while and would like to sunbathe rather than visiting another famous church or museum.
