Hiking & Diving in La Côte d’Azur

Joyeux mercredi !

Mandelieu is only getting more and more beautiful as the days go by. A small group of us decided to start the week by going on a little adventure up to the top of Mont San Peyre! The trail is conveniently located right beside our hotel. Though very uphill, the hike is quick, getting us back home in under an hour and a half.

We were so blown away by the gorgeous views of Mandelieu that we decided to come back again this morning with a larger group! The 5:30 am wake-up call was absolutely worth it, and we made it back just in time for breakfast before a full day of class.

The afternoon brought us out into the Mediterranean for our diving excursion! Franco showed us the ropes for our “baptême” (first dive) that would take us 7 metres underwater.

We couldn’t believe how many different types of fish and plants we could see! Some of us even got to hold a starfish in our hands and swim through schools of thousands of fish. What an unbelievable experience!
