HOW THIS TRIP TO NICE HAPPENED
This mini Eurotrip of mine happened because I jokingly asked. I’m not kidding.
My boss had wrapped up a phone call in French, and I asked if it was a client that was interested in working with us. He said yes and that the client was an old friend of his, but there was just one problem: the client is based in Nice, France and we’re in Manhattan.
And I *jokingly* said “you should send one of us to Nice”.
The next 2 days where an emotional roller coaster of whether I was going or not. I found out I was when I was on a bus going back home. Great timing right? I literally had 3 days to prepare and get everything sorted. While it wasn’t much time, it turned out to be an amazing trip.
