love the sunny side of life

This is a blog about the lovely and sunny lifestyle of the French and Italian Riviera. I will write about great cafes and restaurants in the area, beautiful and exciting places to visit, events in the area to attend to, the best food recipes of the Mediterranean cuisine and generally how to enjoy life to the fullest here. I am a Scandinavian woman with an half-italian family and ever since I moved down to Monaco a few years ago I fell in love with this beautiful region. With lots of friends in the area I have learned the best secret places to visit and most inspiring things to do here - I hope you will feel inspired to join me in what I consider the most beautiful and enjoyable place on earth. I hope you will love the sunny side of life too.
