„Ready?“ - „No but let’s do it anyways.“
Exhausted, tired but also glad we finally dragged our luggage to our room.
After an almost 18 hour travel day we’ve finally arrived in Cannes. Our task was pretty simple, we were given the opportunity to travel to Cannes to attend the Filmfestival from the sidelines. Up to this point, nothing was going as planned, but we still managed to stay somewhat optimistic, because there are worse things than flying to the Cote d'azur. The hotel we stayed at turned out not to be as bad as we thought, when we first walked up to it. It was very close to the beach, where we spent a fair amount of our time sunbathing and swimming. Also, apart for renting small aircrafts at the Cannes airport, where we stayed, it was literally the only thing we could do, in walking distance. For everything else we had to take the Bus. It took us about 20 minutes, depending on the traffic, to get to the center of Cannes. There we would walk around the venue, along the beach, check out the yachts and boats we could never afford and just explore the area. Everyday there were people walking up and down the streets with signs asking for movie premiere invitations. The city was filled with journalists, you could see cameras flashing around every corner. Whether they were taking a random persons photo, or filming the area, you couldn't walk anywhere without passing them. We've always wondered if the people were random, or famous and we simply didn't know who they were. That question was answered when they took our photo while we were racing to the free bathroom at the beach.
