It's Spring!!!

Well it isn't officially Spring as yet, but the weather sure is great! :-)
For example: I no longer need to wear a coat; I even turned off my heating and opened the windows for some cool breeze (though the heating is back on now, but on a lower setting); and there are lots of people up and about cycling, jogging, rollerblading, etc!

View from my window. Sunny day, blue sky!
(This pic was taken 2 weeks ago!!)

Yesterday was particularly sunny and warm (around 18°C, could be higher) and I thought it would be a shame to stay in my apartment for the day! As a result, I rented a bike!!! Yayyyy, finally!!!

Voici mon vélo! I rented it from the Vélostation

Aujourd'hui, ça fait six mois depuis mon arrivée en France! and I continue to really enjoy it here :-) Today I did a bit of work for uni and teaching, then hopped on my vélo and cycled to Lac du Bourget! Gotta love cycle paths, especially the Avenue Verte!!
Here are some picture highlights from today:

Lac du Bourget

Mountains, green grass, sunshine!

Alongside the Avenue Verte: a river leading to the Lac du Bourget

The Avenue Verte! I'll be cycling here again!

Oh look! A Statue of Liberty behind a building next to the Avenue Verte

I'm so excited about it finally being spring too! The campus is so much prettier now. I think it's going to rain most of this week though. :(
