I spent another afternoon by the pool in a heady embrace with my Kindle, reading the exquisitely written "The Magus" by John Fowles.
In Monaco I'm staying in The Monte Carlo Bay Hotel. Out of all the hotels in Monaco, it's undoubtedly the best for all round facilities and by far the most modern.
It's also right on the Mediterranean and although it doesn't have a beach, the jetty does just fine for cannonballing into the sea. Oh, and Jimmyz is next door.
I should also mention that it's a dream for people-watching and fashion vultures. Every step you take is like walking through a living pinterest.. flowing gem coloured kaftans, stacks of incredible jewellery, candy manicures, perfect bodies and cinnamon tans.
