The coastline of Menton, France, seen from the Quai Impératrice Eugénie. Menton is a lesser known little town on the French Riviera, just before you cross into Italy, that beats its glamorous neighbours in charm and ambiance. It has a beautiful bay with houses in an array of warm tints spilling down the hillside to the sea. The view reminded me of pictures I’ve seen of Cinque Terre in Italy, but Menton is a lot less touristy (you can click through to the blog post for more photos)
Thermal baths are to Budapest what baguettes and boulangeries are to Paris or yellow taxis are to New York. Locals and visitors enjoy the cleansing and healing benefits of the thermal water, sometimes while enjoying a game of chess. Via @insidetravellab
