We went to France for three weeks in October and I didn't have time to write blog posts as I planned to do every day while on location. This weekend, I sorted out all photos we have and it's a lot. I now have enough material to start writing travel blog posts about our trip to France and Switzerland.

All photos are mine and my wife's, and taken with two Samsung phones.

We arrived in Lyon at the La Part-Dieu train station from the airport, at night at around 11:00 p.m.on October 1, 2018, and we went straight to the hotel, which was 2 minutes away.

We always do it that way as it doesn't require us to take a taxi.

This is the train station where we walked to in the morning, looking for a place to have breakfast.

That was quite busy in the morning.

I liked the live music there.

On the other side of the train station we found a café bar opened where we had our first breakfast. You can see what we were wearing and I can tell you that it was freezing cold. Hopefully, after a couple of days the weather improved a lot.

"Croissants" and "pains au chocolat" were excellent and the coffee very strong.

After breakfast, we went for a long walk in the city and this is the map.

In fact, we even walked more than that, maybe one more kilometer, but my phone battery was dead. We returned to the hotel taking the subway.

Let's walk now...

I found this building quite interesting!

We arrived at the Parc de la Tête d'or, or "Park of the Golden Head," which is worth visiting if you go to Lyon. It is very popular in the city and has a small zoo.

We got quite tired after this and we used the subway to go back to the center of the city for lunch.

This is what we had.

Finally, we ended up in a local kids' accessory store to buy a booster seat for my daughter, which will be used in the motorhome during the rest of the trip.
