At the southern most tip of France lies another country: Monaco. You can drive by it on the interstate above and see it in its entirety. There are only 38,000 citizens (the population of my hometown) in the entire country.

Rose and I couldn’t resist the opportunity to score another country experience so easily, so we spent the day in this beautiful harbor country.

We visited the Palace, where we learned about Monaco’s long lineage of royalty. You know the mother of the current prince: American actress Grace Kelly.

I’m now intently curious about this minute country!
