Yes well we still feel a bit embarassed about it sometimes but unfortunately it's pretty difficult to do the whole miles thing from New Zealand and I don't travel for work.

Thanks for all the comments guys.

I had great fun reading this trip report...and even ended up ordering a bunch of food as it made me hungry.

Go Nice apartment
There were quite a few apartments to choose from in Nice, all at reasonable prices. We went with a nice apartment in a building that was overlooking the Promenade des Anglais. This was a great choice and offered easy access to both the beach and many eateries around.

Fellow photo reporters take note: This is how itís done.

Emiratesí First Class Suites and service along with Switzerland and the Cote díAzur certainly provide a wonderful subject, but above all I cannot imagine a photo report possibly being any nicer than this. From composition to clarity, youíve provided a shining example of the genre. Thanks, wwnz!

What a delightful trip report! A great combination of incredibly photography and impressive writing. This was a pleasure to read. If the trip itself was as impressive as the trip report, it must have been a wonderful time, indeed. I hope you post further trip reports of additional adventures.
