I don’t think I’m in France Anymore

The university I’m at, Université Lumière Lyon 2, offers some weekend trips for the students to go on. This semester they offered three different ones and one of them was a day trip to Annecy.

I had been to Annecy before (with my parents) so here’s a throwback to that time:

As you can all see, it was .. well kind of cold!

But here I had the opportunity to see this beautiful city once again but without the cold weather, of course I was going to take it.

Actually, this French city used to be an Italian city.

And there I am in the same place where my father was but with the sun and really good weather. He was so jealous!

We actually did learn something during our short amount of time there. The city used to be an Italian city and that is why it has more of an Italian city vibe (they call it the little Venice) than an actual French city. Most of the architecture there is Italian. But another cool thing is that if you cross the lake (it’s a really big lake), you’ll probably end up in Genève! This is why I love Europe!

That day we had a little tour of the city and then were able to jump into the lake and swim, which with the hot weather was a blessing to us. Annecy

People actually swim in the river and it is the most amazing river i've ever been in.

By the end of the day, I was tanner and tired and ready to go back “home.” I don’t think I’m ready to go back home-home just yet, but I think I will be soon enough.

A bientôt,
