Visiting France - Paris to Grenoble

Hello coleagues,

I am planning to have a visit in France. Landing on 10.03 in Paris, then straight from the airport by car to Reims (no booking in Reims, still thinking).
Then some ideas that I got from Frederic here.
Then most probably 14.03 in Lyon
15.03-16.03 in Grenoble
16.03-22.03 in Paris (no car then).

Now, I read some guides what to see. I am coming with my wife nad 4yr old son.
Gear I have: K5,Tripod, SMC DA 18-55,Sigma 70-300 APO DG MACRO, 43ltd, 77ltd, DA 50-135
Plan to take: K5,tripod, DA 50-135, 43ltd, da18-55 (or thinking of upgrade for wider view in low light)

Questions - any suggestions on must see on this route on this time? Especially between 10.03 evening and 15.03 midday.

Ah! Dates! I thought you'll never make Grenoble in 6 hours from touchdown! The only thing I'd say is Grenoble may be good as a base but we drove through there in 2012 and I was very disappointed. I was expecting a quant city nestling in a valley but it just seemed to be a mass of industry and roads. We hit our first mega traffic jam in Grenoble after leaving Calais. The only area that I know of that may be of interest (especially photographically) is the Auvergne area between Paris and your final destination. Lovely rolling hills and countryside.

Thread moved. The General Talk section you posted in is for non-photography related subjects.
