A Look Back: Lovely Lyon

Leaving Antibes, I was on the train heading to Lyon. It was too cold in the early morning. The railway is close to the Mediterranean Sea. The scene through the train window was amazing. By that time, I wished I would have a car and drive on the road, and feel the sea.

Lyon greeted me with the sunshine but it was cold too. The temperature was even lower than the frozen threshold.

Woo, my Airbnb host is super nice. He invited me some beers and gave me a map to explore the city. He even collects beer caps, a lot.

Every corner of the city made me feel that I was in a movie. It seems that every French city is beautiful in its own way. I think I was lucky when the temperature was getting warmer and I could see more of this vibrant city.

Looks old but elegant.

People call Lyon “Capital of Lights” and I totally agree with this name:
