Weekend à Grenoble en photos

Lionel and I spent the past weekend in Grenoble visiting friends, and it was an amazing weekend.  The weather was beautiful and we had a great time relaxing outside, visiting the city and exploring some of the nearby area.  A beautiful city and a wonderful location, surrounded by mountains!  It was our first visit, and we are already hoping to go back again soon!

  2. yay for photos of Grenoble! I havent started thinking of it as my future home, but your photos certainly help make me even more excited to be going there.
