“Travel brings power and love back into your life.”~ Rumi Jalalud-Din

On Sunday we left North Carolina to fly to Paris, then the TGV train from Paris to Lyon, then a Blacklane car to the InterContintenantal Hotel in Lyon. In summary, it was planes, trains, and automobiles and little to no sleep.

“Sleep deprivation: the closest thing to time travel, because you’re never sure what day it is.” ~ Unknown

It was still a lovely day and we met our friends Barbara and Tom and traveled with them on the train to Lyon. One of the best parts of travel is to meet friends who are now your family and to make new friends.

We had a lovely quick lunch, a two-hour nap which was incredible. Then after a quick shower, we met the group for a welcome reception – this is my only photo!

After a delicious dinner of pork rougail and rice at Le Comptoir Cecil, we returned to the hotel and wearily walked down the longest hallway in Lyon to our hotel room to catch up on over thirty hours without sleep.

“Sometimes I lie awake at night, and I ask, “What can I do to keep my life from going by so fast?” Then a voice comes to me that says, “Try slowing down at the corners.” ~ Charlie Brown, from Peanuts, on the speed of life.
