The first market was near our hotel …

A travel blog entry by tina_nixon


The day started with a five hour train ride from Tours to Lyon through the countryside. The good thing was we only had to catch one train - a regional train which travelled direct.

to know how to do it myself. I’m sure you can see where this is going. As I

    This comfortable hotel is decorated with lots of cherries - this is the owner's personal touch. The rooms are comfortable and neat. It is also very closets a railway station.
