One thing that I have learnt while I am here is that the French are very regimented when it comes to their food. In other words, you don’t snack between meals, you have meals at set times every day and every meal is balanced perfectly. There are no exceptions to this, deal with it.
This rule means that breafast doesn’t exist in France after 11am, if you have missed it then you wait til lunch, simple as that. It makes sense I guess…I didn’t quite see it like that after missing breakfast this morning though!
11.30am may seem early to have lunch but when it comes to goats cheese and honey on toast I am pretty happy to have it at any time!
Next was the site that every tourist visits in Lyon: Fourviere.
The Basilica sits a top the hill and provides one of the best views of the entire city. I’ve lost count of the number of times that I’ve been into the building itself but every time I am in awe of the intricacy and beauty of the interior. I am not somebody who is overly religious but I think it is hard not to simply appreciate the building itself!
Late, late, late and very chilled lunch: more Lyon classics, quenelles! We think we’ve found the best description of them, think Yorkshire pudding meets dumpling, all served in a lobster sauce, so so good! How a day should be: sun, rain, food, food, coffee, sites, chill, family – bliss 😀
