DAY 3 - CONTIKI TOUR 3 Paris - Lyon
15.01.2007 - 15.01.2007
Today is what we call a 'Bus Day' which basically means we spent the entire day on the bus, broken of course by various stops. Apparently we will be having quite a few of these over the next few weeks, so unfortuently there is not alot to report on these days.
Today one of our stops was at Fountain Bleu where we were able to view the Chateux of Fountain Bleu which is an amazing Chateux with breath taking gardens. The gardens are absolutely massive and expand for as far as the eye can see. We were able to walk around a very small part of the gardens before heading back to the bus to continue our journey into Lyon.
Upon a arriving in Lyon we checked into the hotel before walking through the Historic area of Lyon where we had dinner. We were both very courageous a tried the French delicacy Escargot (snails) cooked in garlic and parsley. It was definately an experience and they actually tasted alright (kind of like Mussels) although we dont think we will be trying them again any time soon.
