Bonjour Lyon

I am back again, but this time signing in from new place! I recently moved to Lyon, a city of East France for one of the most important beginnings of my life.

Lyon is famous for its food and the UNESCO word heritage architectural sites. I spent my first weekend in Lyon and visited few places and of course tried to click some beautiful pictures. Regarding my experience, yes it’s totally different experience for me because I was in more calm and countryside sites before coming here. There are lots of places to visit, spend time and do some photography. I think I won’t be bored living here. In my free time, I was able to go to very few places and there is always a lot more to explore! Here are few pictures.
