By motorbike from Prague to Sahara – part 4

Lion city Lyon

Lyon and get sick

If you have a runny nose, normally wipe it on a handkerchief or sleeve. But if you have a helmet…

There was nothing to be done, it was necessary to get together somewhere, and Lyon was perfect for that. It’s a bigger city, if I happen to feel a little better, there will be a lot to explore before I’m completely ready to continue driving.

Walks in Lyon

The hostel was also an ideal environment for work. In France at that time, they newly introduced the obligation to identify yourself when logging in to wifi. In other words, every hostel in France I’ve stayed in has had to create an account with my email address to log into their wifi. And I have to admit, it’s an unpleasant feeling when you download a movie from the net to pass the long nights. But a little adrenaline never hurts, the idea of French gendarmes flying into the hostel is worth the risk 🙂

After two days of lying down, my condition improved a bit and I started to walk and discover the corners of the city of Lyon. I have no idea what part I was in, but it was right next to the river and overlooking Disney Castle and the Eiffel Tower. When I looked in the other direction, I saw the Masaryk bridge again. It’s like in an amusement park of unusual development projects.

My main goal of the trip was to arrive in Marrakesh. I had exactly 3 weeks to do it. Which seems like plenty of time. I already had 5 days, but I still have to go to Africa. And why did I have to be in Marrakesh within 3 weeks? Because at that time @maya_cz will fly there and our paths will connect. Next, we will explore Morocco on a motorcycle together. Out of 21 days, I now have only 16 left. The main thing is not to stress, it will be done.

Město Lyon, Francie - Andyho Cestopisy

I really liked Lyon… I can’t really explain why. It was probably the feeling I got from all over France. It’s a country I’ve always wanted to visit, and now that I’m here, I feel like I should have been here forever.

But you need to count the kilometers, it’s still 1,800 km to the port in the south of Spain. I get on my motorcycle and head south. The next stop is the predecessor of the Vatican, the city of Avignon. And I’ll be in the south of France and then everything will go like clockwork, it won’t be cold and the views of the sea from the motorbike will definitely be worth it!
