If money grew on trees...

Five observations about rich people…

Public transport Monaco-style: helicopter transfer

1) If you are rich and can afford to do extremely exciting things, for example, take a helicopter from the airport to the hotel, you will lose all sense of wonder. The other passengers on this helicopter spent the flight on their blackberries. I whooped, squealed and took photos. I know, you can’t take me anywhere!

2) In fact, rich people do not smile much at all. It appears money can buy you a yacht, but it can’t force you to enjoy owning one.

3) If Monaco is anything to go by, rich people’s mantra is: ‘when the world hands you a tax break, buy a Ferrari’…

4) The richer you are, the larger your bathroom.

5) Rich people eat the same as poor foodies, but they pay a lot more for it!

    It kind of goes without saying I would like enough money so I am not stressed about the mortgage and bills and I’m not counting out pennies to buy a pint of milk, but I truly feel I would rather be poor than be stupidly rich and not have that sense of wonder and appreciation of life and things. Really interesting reading your words about rich people. However, I do hope you’re enjoying your trip!!

  2. Absolutely beautiful. In Monaco we visited a perfume factory nestled in the hills and got to watch the sunset. Going back is on My bucket list! Great shots.

    • Thank you! I’ve always wanted to go to the perfume fields in Grasse, especially the jasmine festival. Imagine being rained on by jasmine flowers – it would sure beat conventional rain, which we have more than our fair share of here in London. X
