In the spirit of spontaneous adventures, our boarding house recently embarked on a day trip to Lyon, and let me tell you – it was nothing short of magical! From the early morning excitement to the laughter-filled train and bus rides, our day in Lyon was a delightful escape, offering a taste of the city’s charm in just a few short hours.
Lyon, nestled in the heart of France, is a city renowned for its rich history, delectable cuisine, picturesque landscapes and amazing shops. Our first stop was the heart of Lyon – the Old Town. Narrow cobblestone streets, charming boutiques, and the scent of freshly baked goods in the air greeted us. Lyon, famed for its culinary prowess, beckoned our taste buds and we had a lovely lunch in the old town.
No trip to Lyon is complete without a leisurely stroll along the riverbanks. The Rhône and Saône rivers provided the perfect setting for relaxation and reflection. We then spent the rest of the day shopping till we literally almost dropped.
As the day unfolded, our boarding house family shared laughter, stories, and the joy of exploring a new place together. Our day trip may have been brief, but the connections forged and the experiences shared made it a chapter in our boarding house story that we’ll cherish forever.
A special thank you to Melissa for planning the trip. Until the next escapade, Lyon – merci for the memories!
Lots of Love,
Aida & Yewande
