Day trip 2: Lyon

Another day trip! This time it was to Lyon, the former capital of Gaul. As soon as we arrived, Jessica & I jumped on the over-priced tramway (1,50 €) and headed straight to Le Centre d’Histoire de la Résistance et de la Déportation. We were there for over two hours and didn’t even hear the […]


Chamonix & Mont Blanc
