I have always wanted to go to Dieppe, well since I was 12 years old anyway. Ok, it isn't the most exciting place in France, but it was one of the first places that I learnt about during my French lessons at school. For whatever reason, the early studies were based around the port town of Dieppe and I hoped that I would visit it one day for myself, and perhaps ask for directions to 'la gare' or how to get to 'le chateau'.

So, during a driving holiday in Normandy I made sure we had at least a few hours to get a feel for this ancient seaside town. And I was glad that we did!

    Looks like a nice town, and a good place to visit while exploring Normandy. The battle which took here during WWII is unfortunately often overlooked.

    I used to come here a lot many years ago. I don;t suppose I would recognise it now. I loved the oysters there. The tips brought back memories

    A great little page on Dieppe! It looks like one of those quaint places I would like too. Interesting to see those pebbly beaches where so many Canadian soldiers fell during an ill-fated 1942 test run for D-Day.

    Isn't visiting places you heard of in childhood great and it seems you can't go wrong in France. Great photos and tips as always. Thanks for the BD greetings. Glad you liked Dinan - do you have some pics from there?

    Très bien, mon amie....but it looks like you didn't find "la gare", so your French teacher wasn't too good ...anyway, perhaps I should visit Epping in England and ask for directions to the station ... :-)

    "Hoon"? Is that some strange foreign French activity? Or something the Aussies do on roads? ;-) Nice page hun!
