Destination: Lyon, France (Fête des Lumières- 2017 Edition, Part 1)

Bonjour!

I had the great opportunity to attend the fête des Lumières in Lyon this past weekend for three nights. From last year’s post, I had also attended, but it was only for one night: it was not enough time to see everything (or even close, really), so I was determined to stay longer this time– it turned out to be a good decision, because I managed to get more of the full experience that I hadn’t gotten back in 2016. 1,097 more words

Once Upon A Vin Chaud

December thus far has been a blur of cheesy foods at the Christmas market, vin chaud (hot spiced wine), light shows, and friends visiting Lyon! 1,069 more words

Fête des Lumières

Every winter, I note with wonder the unifying theme of many cultural and religious holiday traditions: LIGHT. There’s something beautiful about everyone deciding that what we really need during the year’s darkest days is to light up our homes and celebrate with family and friends. 260 more words

Belle lurette

The French use the expression ‘depuis belle lurette’ or ‘il y a belle lurette’ when it’s been a good long while since the last time you went somewhere or saw someone. 451 more words

La fête des lumières

Sometimes, the most magical events we attend, are the most unplanned ones.
La fête des lumières in Lyon is one of those. It was a small reminder of how us, humans, are capable of creating amazing sceneries and not just war. 17 more words

It’s been a few weeks since I last wrote a blog post, but I’ve been too busy to write until now. I’ve enjoyed Lyon’s Fête des Lumières,  600 more words
