Things I love About Lyon

J’adore Lyon! Yes and I will tell you why…

So I cannot resist really! I love Lyon! I like it when its colourful and sunny. I like it when its chilly and greyish. I like it black and white (oh well…with a bit of my personal colour touch ;-)…I also cannot resist the colours (this is a fact!).

I like when Lyon is crowded and full of people; but I also appreciate when its quiet and the streets are empty. Anyway that sounds like I am working for some Lyon Tourism Board whose aim is to promote its city. No way…I like & love & J’adore Lyon and I am sure you will as well.

So I have been playing with my photos of Lyon and got a set of black & white ones which I wanted to share with you. Hope you like them.

But this got me thinking, I have been in Lyon over 3 months (all together) and so far there are already so many things I love about the city!

  1. The view and landscapethe city on the hill!
  2. The idea of 2 rivers: Saône and Rhône mergering!
  3. The monuments & museums & galleries to visit
  4. Old & historical feel of the city
  5. Amazing city centre I cannot resist for walking & talking photos
  6. Vieux Lyon & Fourviere & Bellecour & Parc de la Tête d’Or

I am a Polish girl who felt in love with Lyon from the first sight! Jadorelyon is my way of exploring France, the French way of life, their cuisine, sharing the experience from visiting beautiful places in France. Jadorelyon is my new way of adding some Polish influence into French lives and watching on how they like it...
