Return from Isola 2000, Trip to Monaco and finally being back to England

Yesterday morning we left Isola 2000 to get the 8am bus to Nice Airport. The bus from Isola 2000 to Nice Airport takes 2 hours and costs 1€ (luggage included). It was much quicker than the taxi. Unfortunately we did not know about this the week before when we arrived in Isola 2000 and we took a taxi which cost 250€ for eight persons including luggage. We had a wonderful week in Isola 2000, it is not the nicest resort to look at but the slopes are great especially for beginners. We arrived at 10am in Nice and our flight was not until 5:45pm so we decided to take the train to Monaco. We haven’t been to Monaco since April 2010 and it was great to see how much it changed. We had lunch with a friend and I visited the International University of Monaco where I would like to do my Master in Finance after my Bachelor in Banking and Finance. I had the chance to speak to a professor as well as to students and the Head of Admissions. All the people I spoke to have been incredibly friendly and I should add that I just turned up. I never exchanged an email with them nor did I have an appointment. They made me feel welcome and the Head of Admission gave me her business card. I was surprised to find out they there are two McDonalds in Monaco and that they have great public transport. Of course it is not a bad thing but I guess I will never get the picture out of my head where everybody in Monte Carlo gets driven by their private drivers in black Mercedes/Rolls Royce/Bentleys. You get the idea.
