Sea, Sand, Coast, and Brie

Visit Brittany is a gorgeous trip, so many great city with the history, chatèau, beach, coast, lighthouse, and amazing landscape.

Brittany occupies a large peninsula in the northwest of France, lying between the English Channel to the north and the Bay of Biscay to the south. And Rennes is the capital of the Bretagne région.

This region is divided into five departments:
Finistère in the west (Quimper)
Côtes-d'Armor in the north (Saint-Brieuc)
Ille-et-Vilaine in the north east (Rennes)
the Loire-Atlantique in the south east (Nantes)
Morbihan in the south on the Bay of Biscay (Vannes)

Flag

When my visit here, saw this flag everywhere.... and find out that this is the Bretagne's flag... and they also have their own special dialect or language, 'Breton'

The atmosphere of this region feel so different from the other region in France! It's Bretagne, Breizh!

Galette, Crepes, Cider

While visit here don't forget to try traditional gastronomy of Breton, galettes, crepes, Far Breton, local cider & many kind of seafood.
