Côte d’Azur in September #1 | day-trip to Île Saint-Honorat

Back in July, a whatsapp chat with the name “Cannes en Septembrepopped up on my phone. One of my closest friends invited us for a girls getaway to Cannes. France is always a good idea! Moreover, I hadn’t been to the Côte D’Azur since I moved back home from Paris. And that was already three years ago!

Late september is the perfect time for the Southern coastal areas – France, Italy, Slovenia… The weather is still warm enough, all the families have gone and the beaches are quite empty. I was so happy that the water wasn’t too cold and I went for my last summer swim.

Welcome to CANNES

Here are a few shots from Cannes itself. The first day we walked through the city I didn’t bring my camera. Also, the weather was quite bad. Don’t want to spread the bad mood up here. Luckily the rest of the week was super sunny!
