Yvonne's Journey to France

Current Location

Burgundy, France

Bonjour! Hello! My name is Yvonne, but you can call me Bonnie. I'm so excited for you to join me this winter as I travel to Lyon, France, stay with a host family and take university classes. Let's go!


For the school week, I remained in Lyon for my classes. However, once class ended on Friday, I sprinted to the bus station with my friends to catch a four-hour bus ride to Chamonix, France!


It has been my pleasure to share my journies and experiences while abroad with you all! I will leave you with my most recent adventure to Brussels, Belgium.

Field Notes

Burgundy is a region in France near Lyon that is known for the wine that it produces. This region depends on the environment to make its wine, so it can be sold around the world. 


As a program, we took a bus to the region of France called Burgundy for the day! It is two hours away from Lyon and we went to a museum, a market, a wine vineyard and ate lunch in a wine cellar!
