Destination: Lyon, France (Fête des Lumières– 2017 Edition, Part 2)

Inside the Hôtel de Ville (December 2017).


Following the first night of the fête des Lumières last 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.

Le palais Idéal du Facteur Cheval (October 2017).

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.
