Things To Do in Lyon: Visit Musee Miniature et Cinema

June 22, 2013
This is probably the best museum I’ve ever visited in Lyon. It was highly entertaining for me and the place really piqued my interest. I even went back to some of the rooms in this museum to admire what’s on display once again. Highly recommendable for those who are movie freaks like I am. What exactly is it? Created by miniaturist artist Dan Ohlmann, the Musée Cinéma et Miniature presents two rare a

Random Street Photos of Lyon

June 20, 2013
Walking around a city which is new to me is actually my preferred way to discover it. Fortunately, Lyon is a very walkable city and I was able to explore it as much as my legs allow me to. However, I stayed mostly in the old part of Lyon and didn’t go much in the city proper itself. Maybe next time. 🙂 Here are some of the Street Photos of Lyon that I took from my self-guided walking tour. For m

Things To Do in Lyon: Visit Musee des Automates

June 16, 2013
To tell you honestly, I had no idea what to expect when I visited this museum. I just saw it on the list of the places to see on the tourist information cum Lyon map that I have so I visited it.

Well you see that’s what I like about Europe, they have a lot of greeneries which probably is the reas

Things To Do in Lyon: Enjoy the views from the Fourviere.

June 11, 2013
One of the many things that I was looking forward to for this Lyon trip is to visit the Fourviere which is the highest point of the city. Fourviere is a district in Lyon which is also called as the “hill that prays” since you can find a lot of religious buildings like convents, monasteries, chapels and of course the very famous Basilica of Fourviere – the symbol of the city. It is serviced by the

Where I Ate in Lyon: Le Petit Glouton

June 9, 2013
I have mentioned before about my criteria when choosing a restaurant to eat while in France, a place where the language is obviously a barrier. I normally go for those restaurants with an English translation of their menu but I broke that rule when I dined in this charming little, side street restaurant in Lyon. The name of the restaurant caught my attention: Le Petit Glouton which for me, literally translated to
