Lyon (Fouvier at top)

After spending a week on the French Riviera (in Nice and Cannes), I drove north to Lyon, on my way to the Loire Valley. As usual, I typically have a destination when I travel, but no itinerary for the journey there. Lyon was no exception. Without an inkling of what I was doing, I headed to

the highest, most visible structure I could see: the Fouvier. Sure, I tried to follow the map, but it was impossible to understand. It was much easier to navigate by just driving "up".

There were no hotels rooms available due to the enormously popular World Cup soccer event that was occupying the country. I ended up talking to a woman that worked in a gift shop next to the Fourvier church, and she offered to let me stay at her house during my stay. She also had the next two days off, so she was my host and my tour guide, showing me all the great parts of Lyon and its surrounding areas. I was especially fortunate in this regard, as she took me to places I never would have found on my own. (Perhaps I would if I could just read the maps.) One such place is the Beaujolais region, described much further down on this page.
