We are absolutely loving Lyon, It is such a pretty town. Kel even likes it more than Paris! The weather has been incredibly hot, and as the apartment we are staying in is on the top floor and doesn’t have a fan nor air conditioning, we’ve been really feeling the heat! It’s almost India-hot!
Guillaume’s roommates, Juliette and Katrina, have been so kind to let us stay in the apartment as Guillaume himself hasn’t even been here yet! He took a year off studying Medicine to travel and was in Kathmandu, Nepal when the earthquake happened so got flown back to France by the French embassy, He doesn’t start back at Uni until September so he’s been spending some time in Norway. We meet him tomorrow and then the following day we are traveling by car to his parents’ house, about 100 km south of Lyon. Apparently they have a swimming pool so we can’t wait to jump in! The temperature for Friday and Saturday is meant to be 40 degrees!
It’s been really fun exploring cities by bike – especially without all of our heavy bags on them!
Here are a few photos from our day in Lyon.
