    Lyon, France

    August 29, 2017 in France

    Originally we were heading to Marseillan from Nice however I made a change of plans and decided to take Nana to Paris via Lyon. It worked out well as we were able to see a bit more of France and fill up some of our spare time. I'd never planned to go to Lyon when I left NZ but it's a lovely city with plenty of dinky little alleyways, cafes and two Rivers's inning through. It was sooooo hot in Lyon and our accommodation didn't have air conditioning so we had two horrible nights of sleep but the highlight of Lyon was walking through the city and up to the Basilica. Nana and I walked up over 500 stairs and it was super tough for Nana, I was so proud of her when we finally got to the top, and we walked into the Basilica and were absolutely blown away with it. This was the first Cathedral we'd seen lined with lead lights which had all been removed during WWII to ensure they didn't break. Nana and I sat down and took in the full beauty of the building, absolutely amazed at how much work had gone into making it look as spectacular as it did. As hard as it was for Nana to climb those hundreds of stairs, she sat in the church, grabbed my arm and said thank you for getting her up here to see such a beautiful Cathedral. The funniest thing was, we walked out a different door and saw a train that we could've got up instead of walking!!!! But nonetheless it was awesome to see Nana accomplish such a physical task that she didn't think she'd be able to do. We explored the area a bit longer before navigating the public transport system back to our hotel. It was a short but sweet stay in Lyon and we didn't need any longer than two nights.Read more
