Monaco is a destination full of surprises and for me was my country #97. It is only eight miles to Italy and seven minutes by helicopter to Nice. This country is half the size of New York City's Central Park and is focused on sustainability. During my first visit, I saw the first organic gardens in 300 years, the Formula E race with electric cars and enjoyed fine dining and stunning hotels.
As well as Chef Marcel Ravin's Blue Bay
and Elsa where I ate right on the water. The food, service and setting were an incredible treat!
Where did I stay in Monaco?
I loved staying at the marvelous Monte Carlo Bay Hotel and exploring the lagoon.

In Monaco, I went to my first car race! I saw the Formula E on May 13, 2017 and I loved watching the electric cars. Please see my videos from the Venturi Press Conference as well as FanBoost videos with Venturi Pilots, Maro Engel and Stéphane Sarrazin.

I flew to Nice, France and then had a helicopter transfer to Monaco. It is a seven minute ride and on the way back to Nice; I was the only passenger. Thank you Monacair! I loved my flight.
