Ryan's Journey to France

Current Location

Lyon, France

Bonjour! Hello! My name is Ryan, and I am super excited for you to join me on my journey to Lyon, France! Follow along for my take on French culture, food, museums, monuments and much more.


My second week of classes is complete! I visited Chamonix Mont-Blanc this weekend for some fun skiing adventures. Read on for more about my week and my experience in the French Alps.


I am so happy to have taken this journey with you all! Read my final journal entry for my last thoughts on Lyon's places and people, as well as my reflections on the past six weeks exploring the city.

Brussels, the capital of Belgium, is only an hour and a half-long flight from Lyon! This weekend, I visited the bustling (or should I say, "Brussel-ing") metropolis and saw all the city had to offer.
