Grenoble is a city in southeastern France, at the foot of the French Alps where the river Drac joins the Isère. Located in the Rhône-Alpes region, Grenoble is the capital of the department of Isère. The proximity of the mountains has led to the city being known as the “Capital of the Alps.” (source: Wikipedia)

More photos from Grenoble will come. In the meantime, here’s a photo of a bicycle in Villard-de-Lans:

    • Thank you Rick and good evening from Grenoble!
      According to a quick google search the distance from Spokane to Grenoble is:
      8307.4 Kilometers / 4482.7 Nautical Miles / 5162 Miles
      Approximate flight duration time from Spokane to Grenoble is 10 hrs, 43 mins

      In other terms: pretty far away 😀

      BTW: are you on pinterest?

  1. Beautiful! I would like to go France some time. I have heard they don’t like the Canadian French accent, however whenever I go to Quebec and speak French they can’t tell I am from Canada either, they say where are you from? Your accent is strange – so maybe the French won’t know I’m from Canada either 😉 the last best guess the Quebecois came up with was Belgian, hooray! At least I hope that’s a good thing!

    • You should really go to see France! Don’t miss it!
      I can’t speak French, but still we didn’t experience to many problems communicating with the locals – except for one person that clearly didn’t understand/didn’t want to understand a word english!
      We asked her: “can you help us?” on which she replied “bus?”.
      So we spoke more clear & slow:
      “No. Can you HELP us?”
      “Bus?”
      “Ok, nevermind. Merci.”

      Many young people speak English in France, but since you already know French the language barrier wouldn’t be an obstacle.

      “Hooray” is a good thing. We say something similar in Norwegian “Hurra”, and it’s something you shout out when something is good/positive or when someone has achieved something great.

      • I find that beyond hilarious that the only word she knew in English was “bus” but maybe that’s just me being cruel 😉 Montreal is like that too – very Anglo-friendly, it’s more the rural Quebec that doesn’t have as many English speakers.

  2. Seems like a truly beautiful place!! I might need to check that out soon! Lovely shots!
