Travel inertia sets in.

There is now going to follow, in this lamentably tardy blog, a series of days which are all very much the same and which the reader may wish to skim-read or even skip entirely. Believe me, there are some pretty crazy things to come!

Basically, I eventually fell foul of what I refer to as “travel inertia” insofar as I get to a place I like and just cannot get up the impetus to move on. It is not country or even continent specific, it will happen to me just about anywhere sooner or later on a trip.

As I mentioned in the previous entry I had instantly fallen in love with the Flaneur hostel (although it calls itself a guesthouse) and was to fall similarly in love with the city of Lyon over the following days.  I had only booked two or three nights here but ended up staying a lot longer as you shall see if you follow this blog on.

There was even a hammock.

My images for this day show that I appear to have spent most of it in the hostel, specifically the lovely back garden area, and went for a bit of a wander in the evening for a few beers and a look round the area which I was to get quite attached to.  I did manage to add a little something to the wonderful blackboard they had in the garden with the title “Before I die I want to…..”  See if you can guess which one I added.

That is my kind of record collection, two of my all-time favourite albums.

Not too much to report therefore but there is more to come so stay tuned and spread the word.

Hello there. I am a child of the 50's, now retired and had been enjoying travelling pre-virus. Now I am effectively under house arrest. Apart from travelling, I love playing music (guitar, vocals and a bit of percussion) as the profile pic suggests and watching sport, my playing days are long over. I read voraciously, both fiction and nonfiction I'll read just about anything although I do have a particular interest in military history of all periods. I live alone in fairly central London where I have been for over 30 years since leaving Northern Ireland which was the place of my birth. I adore cooking and I can and do read recipe books and watch food programmes on TV / online all day given half a chance.
