Things To Do in Lyon: Visit Croix Rousse

July 7, 2013
I’m pretty sure that there were a lot of other things to see in Croix Rousse than what I’ve seen when I went there. It was the last full day of my vacation and I was just totally beat. All I really wanted at that time was to lay down on a beach somewhere, sip a margarita while I observe the life around me pass by, too bad there was no beach in Lyon. To top it all off, I decided to visit this area when

Where I Ate in Lyon: Le Panier du Chef

June 26, 2013
If you’re getting fat, do it in style and where else can you do it more stylish than in the gastronomy capital of France itself – Lyon. Lyon has a lot of restaurants not to mention the mini stalls that they have all around town to sell you crepes, merengues, ice creams or just about any food that you can eat while walking that you can think of. So yes, I’ve been eating almost the whole time that

Things To Do in Lyon: Visit Parc de la Tete d’Or

Parc de la Tete d'Or
The weather was fantastic when I visited Parc de la Tete d’Or. Unlike the very cold Paris where I came from before I went to Lyon, it was relatively hotter in this part of France in April. I had to buy normal shoes as I only brought one pair of boots with me for this trip, the light packer that I am. I love parks in Europe. I’ve been to quite a few but Parc de la Tete d’Or is probably the best

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 that’s after I got lost a couple of times since Lyon, as previously mentioned, does not have clear signage for directions and tourist spots. I followed the way to Rue St Georges which as per my map, is the locat
