Starting the roadtrip - Lyon and Avignon

Benjamin and I started our roadtrip towards Spain/Portugal on 10.08. and after starting at 4 am we arrived 3 pm in Lyon. Right away we took a walk through the city :D A really lovely old city centre.
At the evening we met our couchsurfing host Thomas who took us to a CS picnic to hang out with some more Lyon CSers. After the picnic we were a little tipsy and enjoyed a ride on city bikes through the city at night. A perfect first day on the trip^^ The next morning we went sightseeing through the city again, especially to see the Basilika and the great view over Lyon from there. Afterwards we enjoyed a 3 courses menu for lunch which was absolutely amazing and proved why French are famous for cooking.
At the later afternoon we drove towards Avignon and walked through the city centre during sunset time. Then enjoyed a picnic in front of the pope's palace before we continued to Montpellier, where we slept at the beach :D
