"Brittany in general" Carnac by alza

Les alignements mégalithes de Carnac -- babelfish should help....

It was summer everytime I went to Brittany, but there was always lots of wind, sometimes a drizzle (was it the ocean mist?) Bring some warm sweater or buy a beautiful sailor's knit, Armorlux had the nicest stuff (I mean, it really fits, not just a big bulk of egg-shell wool.)

Best memories are the crêperies and the cider, talking to the café owner who used to be a sailor, sailed the high seas, lived in NYC for a while then came home to open his little place. Meanwhile my friend was pitying me for not enduring the walk along rocky cliffs all the way to La Pointe du Raz. Well, I saw it well from the Crêperie.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:sit back, have a crêpe with cider
  • Cons:mostly rocks
  • In a nutshell:La mer! toujours formidable!

    A great relaxing page , i like the way you concentrate on your personal perception of a place rather than listing guide book facts.

    Crêpe with cider, meeting interesting people and enjoying a great view... I don't think anyone can pitty you for that! Bretagne has always fascinated me, altough I've never been here. I hope you will share some more of your travelstories!
