25 Jun Colorful Dijon
Traveling around France (or anywhere for that matter) I tend to rate each city based upon the usual suspects like the ease of navigating it, the hotel options, and the quality of the museums and local attractions. However, I also rate them on subjective criteria. I judge things like how I feel about the city, the people and the mood of the local folks. Dijon rated an “A” in my book on most fronts, but especially in the “mood” category. Dijon is esthetically a cheerful city with its colorful flags lining most streets, and its vibe is a combination of contentment and general happiness. The natives seem to move about the city with smiles on their faces spreading good cheer by their mere presence.
Enjoy the colors of Dijon – they make me smile and I hope you as well.
