Following the first night of the fête des Lumièreslast weekend, I had a lazy morning in the Airbnb (it was incredibly comfy, that’s why) before I headed out around 11:00 to Part-Dieu to pick up another girl who would be staying at the Airbnb. We met up around 11:40 and we headed over to the flat where she could drop her belongings off.
I had the great opportunity to attend the fête des Lumières in Lyon this past weekend for three nights. From last year’s post, I had also attended, but it was only for one night: it was not enough time to see everything (or even close, really), so I was determined to stay longer this time– it turned out to be a good decision, because I managed to get more of the full experience that I hadn’t gotten back in 2016. In the end, I couldn’t ask for a better time than those nights filled with magic, wonderful people, and unforgettable memories.
Known as “the capital of the Alps,” Grenoble is picturesque just about anywhere– in fact, it’s known for having views of the mountains– ominous and sublime– wherever you are in the city. Seriously, no matter where you turn, you get views of the Alps in the distance!
After a pleasant day in Pérouges the day before, I headed out to the palais Idéal du Facteur Cheval the following morning while in Lyon during my October holidays. Considering that I had a mix-up with waking up the morning before (long-story short, I’d made the mistake of setting my alarm for the day after I’d planned to visit the palace, so I’d missed my train to head over– I chose to do Pérouges that day instead), I made sure to set my alarm for the correct day in order not to miss the opportunity see this incredible palace.
