Something I love immensely about French culture is that they love to spend time outdoors. Grenoble itself is a very outdoorsy city, and people here go hiking all the time. I have always enjoyed being outside (geek analogy: if I was a Sim, I would have the “Love Being Outdoors” moodlet), especially this time of year when Spring is bursting forth from all around. We have had an unusually warm winter this year. Last year in March, it was raining practically every day and then it snowed just after Easter. This year, it rained quite often a few weeks ago, but since then we’ve had perfect early spring weather. I love spring! Eating lunch on the terrace outside, starting my little herb garden (hoping for better results this season), and taking hikes with my little family.
Yesterday afternoon, we went on a short hike to La Tour d’Arces. It’s a medieval lookout tower that is less than 10 minutes away by car (just another advantage of living in France: medieval ruins practically in your backyard!). There’s not much to say about it, so I will let these pictures speak for themselves :)
Hope you all are enjoying the beginnings of springtime, from wherever your corner of the world may be :)
