Bus 230 : Nice Sophia Antipolis Express

My work in Sophia Antipolis is some 25km away from home. There is a very convenient bus, the #230 Nice Sophia Antipolis Express, that takes me there in about 40 minutes, although the way back usually takes a little longer because of congestion.

One surprising quality of this service is that it does not appear to always take the same route; in the morning, it sometimes arrives at my stop Gambetta on the Promenade d'Anglais, coming from the Promenade, sometimes it arrives from the Bvd. Gambetta. In Sophia usually it makes a little detour loop along the Rue Beethoven, but not necessarily. Usually it passes the airport Nice Côte d'Azur without bothering about it, but at other times it actually goes there to see if there are any passengers at both terminal 1 and 2.. well, whatever. The single fare has dropped to € 1.30 (was € 9.50) so no complaints from me.

Starting blog

Yup, finally starting this blog. Soon I will add pictures from my life in Nice, France. This blog is likely to contain entries in various languages, amongst which Dutch and Portuguese. We'll see, I still don't have internet at home and I'm writing from my office in Sophia Antipolis now. In the near future, with home connection, updates should become more frequent and/or informative. Bye bye !
