I’m not sure what to write about Lyon. It left me empty and numb, just as its life seemed to be, although I appreciated the climbs and the relaxing banks.
It is here I always feel most at home, exactly where I’m supposed to be.
And what I admire is how the touristy and the local intermingle on the banks.

I keep coming back to Valparaiso in these challenge-inspired posts and now, it is becoming clear why. It is the city where I had most fun, for sure.
We are in France, right? Officially, yes.
Whether a stairway or an alley, I found that in Valparaiso, it is the narrow ones that steal most of its charm.

The forgotten quarter of French capital? By tourists, maybe. By locals, no.
It seemed to me that this city is the European capital of street music.
There is one eternal criteria that a city has to fulfill for me to really love it. I have to find nice little spots to read, not necessarily in calm, but certainly in ease. Paris nails it.
Vernon is where you step off the train from Paris if you go to Giverny, visiting Monet’s garden. Since it is on your way, why not take its streets for a quick walk and find houses, carrying history on their walls.
One of the best things you can do in Paris when summer hits the streets, it’s to escape it. Direction: Monet’s garden.
This city is perfect for solo-travellers. Every day there is a new treasure, waiting to be found.
