Yet again, in another train. 14/28 days, and already the 7/10 traveldays. We’re headed to Paris for 4 nights there, and I really have to cut my hair. We’ll be staying in a hotel again, it’s like 20 € cheaper that the hostels and it’s in the city. I don’t understand how that’s even possible, but a tip for all other backpackers, look at the hotels too! My only fear is that the website we booked through says you have to be 18 to check in to a hotel. But I guess they’ll have to call our parents then haha.
Lyon was very nice, we didn’t know anything about it so it was all totally new. We had a very slow, nice, vacation-kind of stay. Yesterday we just walked around and took pictures of nice buildings and went to some churches, and then we happened to climb a mountain. There’s a church on the top of a hill called the Notre Dame de Fourvieré, and there was a nice parkway all the way up to it. The very well-informed tourists Bicca and Emil did not know that this parkway existed. Instead, they happened to climb up a very straight hillside in the middle of the forest, grabbing roots and stones to keep going. After blood, sweat and tears we reached the top and saw others casually walking through the park. Well, that happens.
I’ve also got stung by a wasp. And we were out of water yesterday morning until we found a drinking fountain. Emil keeps being irritated on my not-always-that-appropriate behaviour (feet on the table, not being polite when I talk to people, wearing shorts and a top in churches, taking pictures of people and things) and I’ve got a hard time understanding why he needs everything to be so super hygienic. We come from very different backgrounds, apparently.
Otherwise everything is very nice. France is a little cooler than Italy and they also have drinking fountains, so we’ll be fine. We had a luxurious breakfast containing freshly baked croissants, yoghurt and orange juice for less than 3 € on the train station this morning, and I just ate a sandwich. Vive la France!
