Visiting Cannes… birthday escapade 1/3

Every year there is always this film festival famous for showing films from all over the world.  I cannot believe I was able to visit the Cannes Festival location.  Cannes is located on the French Riviera.   It is a small city but a very nice and relaxing place.  It is still very french – the food, shopping and the french people 🙂

It was so nice to walk long the Croisette avenue, visiting the Palais des Festivals et des Congres where famous actress and actors walk along the red carpet.  There is a picturesque view on top of the hill overlooking the city of Cannes and the Mediterranean sea.   I was also able to try their famous shrimp provencale’ – its yummy.  And last but the least is shopping of course….
