After a few days in Nice, back home, that I spent going to doctors pretty much non stop (since medical coasts in France without insurance are so much lower than in the US with a good one…), I clearly needed some action. I had never been to the gorges du Verdon before, which is a very famous place for mountain sports and also supposed to be beautiful. It’s less than a 3 hours drive from Nice so I took my mother’s car and just drove there. It was so stunning! The roads were very fun to drive on and the canyon I explored beautiful, even if the water was crazy cold (9 C degrees).
