France – Lyon

France – Lyon

Lyon is a wonderful city! One of my favorite in France to be honest.

Lyon is located in the south east of France. Buildings and architecture are wonderful, the city is peaceful!

You definitely should visit this:

  • Le parc de la tête d’or. This parc is WONDERFUL. It has even animals inside, it is huge and it has so much to see! As I lived not so far away from this parc, I enjoyed so much to just relax and spend afternoons there. It is super peacefull
  • Musée Confluence: Wonderful museum
  • Les quais de Lyon.
  • Vieux Lyon and “les traboules”: The old city has so many small streets but also between the buildings, you are able to cross one street to another inside building. It is really impressive – you need to know a little bit Lyon to find it 🙂
  • Fourvière. Wonderful basilica with a special feeling inside. Worth to visit and you have a wonderful view from all the city.
  • Place Bellecour.

Don’t forget to try L’institut Paul bocuse. It is a restaurant where students practise to become chef! It is one of the best experience in my life foodwise! BUT you need to book at least 2 months in advance!

Norway, this country is similar to Sweden but different at the same time (logical? yes I know! °

I visited Norway 2 times, the first time was to celebrate the 17th of May. It is BIG deal there, it is the national day and also an official read day. They have a special way to dress! Girls are wearing dresses, it depends where you come from and your family (I hope I remember correctly!!) Boys have also a special costume, it is really beautiful to see them all dressed!

Croatia – Road trip to Rijeka, Zagreb and Krk island

Croatia – Road trip to Rijeka, Zagreb and Krk island

Croatia

We went for a couple of days in Rijeka. We live close to an airport and they have different flights to Europe, and one to Rijeka.

Accomodation: We were staying at the Botel Marina in Rijeka

Day 1. we arrived during the afternoon, we rented a car and went straight to a small city called Krk on the island of KRK. It was wonderful and super warm. The really good point about our travel was that it was during april and we did not have so much turists! We spent the night in the boat. The room was ok, it was unsual to sleep in the boat!

Day 2. We went to Plitvice park! Super impressive

Day 3. Zagreb

Day 4. Rijeka

Day 5. Krk island and come back to Sweden

Recommandations: I would recommend you to NOT book the same hotel. You should do a road trip around Croatia and change cities. Of course, if your goal is to relax then stay to one hotel close to the beach ? Rijeka is really industrial city! You should probably find a nice hotel on the Krk island

France – North west

France – North west

I come from the western part of France, close to Nantes and the ocean where I grew up.

I lived 2 years in Rennes, and 1 year in Lyon and a couple of months in Grenoble.

Lyon is so far the best city in France to me. It is really beautiful, you are close to the Alpes and not so far away from the Mediterranean sea. You have a lot to do and so many beautiful monuments! If it is one city I could see myself living in in France, it would be Lyon.
