If it’s Friday, it must be France …
Bonjour! We have just passed the halfway point in our month-long stay in Nice … gone in the blink of an eye! Life is busy and full with so much to do and enjoy, every day is a treat.
We returned from 3 days in Lyon last night. The second-largest city in France and known as the “Gastronomic Capital”, it’s well worth a visit and there is much to share. I haven’t downloaded or edited my photos from the trip yet, but here are a few shots of this beautiful city. More to come!
The trip home did not go quite as planned and let me just say this: it was not the TGV’s (Train Grande Vitesse) finest moment. I will be brief. (Clarification ~ as brief as is possible for me.)
The departure was almost an hour late. Then there were two additional train changes, the latter I just happened to catch via an announcement in French that was at a volume easily missed (my husband did not hear it at all). To add insult to injury, this last train stopped at every petit village between Toulon and Nice ~ and I think they may have made some up just to annoy us ~ so we arrived home at 2:15 a.m.
I usually love the train service over here … but last night … not so much! However I also know that can happen anywhere so we will just chalk it up and move on. My point is that I’m quite tired and it’s 1 a.m. here. I’ve been working on social media and trying to squeeze in some writing time and I have to say something that I don’t often say. I’m tired! So I’ve decided to give myself permission to go to bed.
The Nice Triathlon is on tomorrow (oops – I should say today now) and we want to get up to watch the amazing athletes, of all ages, who have gathered to participate. My husband and I will be participating in the spectating event and cheering loudly!
Bon soir et bon weekend tout le monde! I’ll catch up with you later …
Do you often have glitches in schedules when you travel? Was there one that really stands out? Tell me about it and then I will realize that last night’s really wasn’t so bad after all! Merci beaucoup!
