    June 16, 2018 in France ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    After a couple of hours driving, and a couple of breaks in the aires for drink and a picnic we arrived in Rouen. Roadworks made us detour to a different car park but a short walk later we were in our hotel. Our room was on the 4th floor and had a spectacular view of the old court building. We went for a walk around the old medieval town and stopped off for galettes in a well reviewed creperie. We’ve enjoyed Rouen each time we have been and should spend longer next time.Read more

    Sovmorgon till 8. Håller på att bli vuxen på riktigt😁
    7 km vandringsled i skogen runt Jumieges. Gick nästan rakt på några stora vildsvin som turligt nog vek av åt motsatt håll. Första gången jag fått se svinen i sin egen miljö. Sen ett liten linch inne i byn före avfärd mot Trouville.

    Vandring i Le Crotoy

    May 8, 2017 in France

    Gick upp relativt tidigt för en morgonpromenad innan avfärd söderöver. Ett otroligt lågvatten i byn bidrar till ett rikt fågelliv. Gick runt sjön. Vad är sannolikheten att stöta på en svensk bosatt i Bryssel..?! Väldigt trevlig pensionerad advokat (!) Som sällskap.

    Camping Jumieges

    May 9, 2017 in France

    Efter att den manuella GPS:en läst fel på kartan hittade vi äntligen till den camping vi hade som mål. Finns hur många ställplatser och campingar som helst i Frankrike, men inga skyltar. Men här är det helt perfekt! Finns verkligen allt man behöver. En av de bättre ställen jag sett!! Tennisbanor, basketplan, samarbetsbanor, badstrand, you name it!!
    Idag har vi avverkat 11 km vandring runt sjöarna i byn. Vin och cidertillverkning blandas med historiska inslag som krigsbunkrar längs vattenbrynet. Överallt finns spår av krigen kvar i detta land.

    September 22, 2018 in France ⋅ 🌧 59 °F

    When we were first married we saw three views of the Rouen Cathedral at the National Gallery in Washington. Then and there we fell in love with the work of Claude Monet. Today we visited that cathedral, along with the Parish Church of St. Maclou and the Church of St. Ouen. I was able to pay photographic homage to Monet by attempting to duplicate his beautiful images on this rainy Saturday. I had not realized before that the heart of Richard the Lionhearted is entombed here, along with the remains of Rollo, the first Viking Duke of Normandy. We also went to the place where Joan of Arc was tried, then to the church which has been built over the site of her execution. This modern structure, built in 1979 incorporates stained glass windows salvaged from churches of the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries that were destroyed in World War II. A visit to Rouen’s Museum of Fine Arts capped off a wonderful afternoon. We saw one of Monet’s views of the Rouen Cathedral right here in Rouen. There was also a wonderful painting by Pisarro of the Pont Boïldieu, the bridge by which the Viking Rinda is docked. At night there was a sound and laser light show, using the facade of the cathedral as a screen. One presentation gave the history of the Viking invasion of Normandy, and another gave the story of William the Conqueror.Read more

    Une nuit dans les champs

    September 25, 2017 in France

    Une nuit dans les champs au pied de nos amis les éoliennes. Ici nous sommes sûre de ne pas trouver de ventouse. Plus il y aura des éoliennes en France et plus il y aura d'endroits pour les camping-cars stationner en toute tranquillité, Si toutefois les fermiers nous fiche la paix.
