What to do in Lyon, France

I LOVE to travel, and I adore visiting my best friend, Greg, and his wife in Lyon, France. Greg and I grew up together as teens in Hong Kong. He is half French and moved to Lyon after graduating high school.

It’s wonderful to have a friend in this beautiful city that I can visit every year! Here are some snapshots from my visit so far...

A visit to the Max Chaoul Couture boutique. My, oh my, this makes me want to have another wedding!

Wine tasting in the Beaujolais region. I know, seriously spoiled.

We visited Chateau de La Chaize, which makes the finest Brouilly wine. The estate was gifted to the original owner by Louis XIV.

They gave us the key to the gate! Whoppee, we’re moving in!

Can you imagine living here?!

The chateau’s vegetable garden. I would love to host a cocktail party here.

Back in the winery building, the cellar where the wines are aged.

We were honored to receive a personal tasting from Marquise (duchess!) Caroline de Roussy de Sales. Her ancestors owned the chateau and built the winery, and she owns and operates it today.

A few other snapshots from my awesome time in Lyon!

The dessert selection at L’Epicerie Bistrot a Tartines. We had the chocolate and pear tart. Yum!!

Perouge, a beautiful medieval town that is still inhabited today.

The Rhone river in Lyon. Beautiful!

Happy and safe travels!
