My very first roadtrip


7 October 2017

Definitely the nicest way to end a tiring roadtrip πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ
Exploring our hotel

6 October 2017

Relaxed at the bar before spending quality time at the spa🍹
Ate cheap at this hotel πŸ˜‚
Touchdown!
Now to the last stop : St Remy de Provence
On the road to BΓ©darieux to visit my bf's grandma
Back at the hotel, we discovered that we didn't have πŸ’§ ... What an awful night

5 October 2017

🍜 ramen heaveness πŸ™πŸΌ
Exploring Bordeaux by myself, on the hunt for a belt.
Nice studio, pretty cheap too !
On the road to Bordeaux, 4hr drive.

4 October 2017

Stayed the night at my grandparents' house
I liked Nantes, it's at the same time modern and traditional, I wish we could have stayed the night in the city.
2hr drive to Nantes
I lived in this city for a school year, we visited vefy quickly the city centre before heading off to Nantes

3 October 2017

Final destination for today and we arrived later than we planned because of two blocked exits ...
Quick stop and lunch at Bourges
By now, we're not surprised by the number of highway works happening on the road .. πŸš§πŸ›‘πŸ›£
Left Lyon too late again, it took us an hour to leave the city because of road works and traffic πŸ˜’

2 October 2017

As for dinner, we stopped by at the Hard Rock CafΓ©. I ordered pulled-pork burger which was delicious. It wasn't that lively when we were there, I'm guessing, since a Monday night. I was quite disappointed with the cocktails we ordered ..
More exploring happened
I thought I lost my backpack which contains EVERYTHING ! Ipad, wallet and IDs. Left it at Starbucks, luckily the staff found it and kept it until I came back to get it.
Stop at Starbucks to reenergize β˜•
Exploring the other streets πŸ“Έ
We decided to take a nap first 😴 before exploring some more. Lyon was a 4-hr drive after all.
We found this place, well I found it. I'm asian so I'm always craving for asian food, and the yakisoba I ate was close to home πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ
After a quick shower, we decided to go out and explore but especially find somewhere to eat.
Upon arrival at Lyon, we noticed immediately, the big difference in the temperature compared to Aix-en-Provence. We found that strange since Lyon is towards the north ...
I really liked this hotel, not far from the city centre and unique.
By car, I wanted to leave Aix-en-Provence quite early to avoid traffic, things happened and we finally got on the road at 8am.
