Monaco via Instagram.

After watching the Monaco Grand Prix yesterday, it reminded me that I still needed to do a little Instagram round up from our recent trip there. The below photos should just give you a snapshot of what we got up to :) If you want to read more about what to do in Monaco then click here or here for Parts 1 & 2 of my travel guide.
Or, if you fancy following me on Instagram, you can here. Enjoy!

Our adventure started right here at Giraffe in Heathrow Airport, T5. We were eased into our 5am start with the help of some scrummy avocado and scrambled eggs.

Here I am checking out the potential nightlife as soon as we arrived! It was my birthday after all...

My dad organised for this to be delivered to the room after we returned from our first little explore. Such a treat!

Here he is! The little rascal trying to blow out my birthday candle in Maya Bay. Oooh no you don't. Stick to your coconut dim sum and chocolate sauce and no-one gets hurt ;)
You can read more about this amazing restaurant here or check out their website.

A late night stroll after dinner brought us to Casino Square where all the buildings (including the casino which you can see here) look like palaces. So pretty! 

Here are a couple of ridiculous looking fish which can be found in the Oceanographic Museum in Monaco-ville. If tropical fish were fashion designers, here we have Peter Pilotto and Roberto Cavalli ;)

 Enjoying a Bellini or two on our last night in town!

See the big red door? That's the entrance to Buddha Bar. I love how it's located in this magical park surrounded by greenery and twinkling lanterns. You would not get that in London :)

 On our last day before flying back in the evening, we stopped at Bar Americain (in the lobby of Hotel de Paris) for lunch. They brought me a plate of macaroons to accompany my post-lunch mint tea. How could I refuse!? This one was raspberry flavour, an exquisite little thing with a gooey centre. Delicious!

Ahh back to the real world now. Did anyone watch the Monaco Grand Prix yesterday?

If you want to get more of an insight into life in Monaco, you have to check out By Celina - a fantastic blog written by a gorgeous girl who currently splits her time between Monaco and London. She also has an insane wardrobe and a cute little pomeranian that often features in her posts.

Now I'm off to make the most of the sunshine on this Bank Holiday Monday! Hope you're all having a good day xx
