I'm thinking about a weekend drive there soon.
Always a great place to escape to.

Wow that's a very hot week, for that part of the world. The ice cream and beer vendor's must be busy...

2.8s?! That's quicker than it takes me to sneeze...
 
Tesla adds “ludicrous mode” to the Model S.

If the Insane setting wasn't insane enough for you, the +Tesla Motors​ Model S will now go from 0 to 60 in just 2.8 seconds. That's 1.1Gs of pure awesomeness.
Optional battery pack upgrade will also offer an extra 15 miles of range.

Story
Tagline
English-Greek healthy techie living in Biot, France.
Introduction
I grew up in the south-east of France, and then lived for a few years in London and then Paris. I'm glad to be back "home", and I'm loving the life here: gorgeous weather most of the time, lots of opportunities to enjoy the outdoors, and not many people (compared to big cities).

Since I moved to Biot, near Nice, I've changed my lifestyle: eating healthily and lots of exercise (at least three times a week in the local gym). I'm lucky enough to be home-office based, although I do travel for work a lot.

I enjoy cooking, and especially sharing the experience (see my #lunchin15mins tag). I also enjoy working in the sun, so you might spot me on my balcony one day as you drive by!

I've been to this Thai restaurant over a dozen times in the last year, despite it being a good 20 minutes drive from home, and each time I've always been pleasantly surprised. It is a family run business, and has been in the Port de St. Laurent for over 10 years. All of the dishes I've tasted are flavourful and fairly generous portions, however there is one dish that stands out among all, if not all Asian dishes on the Côte d'Azur: the Thai Duck Curry ("Canard laqué au curry Thaï"). That is truly an epic dish, especially when eaten with the rice glass noodles ("vermicelles de riz"), and will leave you scraping the bottom of the dish for the last dashes of sauce.

Great service, reasonable prices and some of the freshest and tastiest sashimi around.

They serve Illy coffee! On top of that, the decor is quaint, the food is fresh and healthy, and the service is very friendly. The café is on a side road just off the main road, so it's quiet and makes sitting outside on either terrace lovely and peaceful.
