Caen, FranceApril 1 in France
I was skeptical of spending the day here, but this city should not be underestimated - it's a beautiful retreat from Paris (2 hours away).
An old but well preserved castle with great views of the pleasantly small city, a thorough and informative museum about WWII dedicated to peace, and a bustling marketplace with juicy apples and tasty (cheap!) almonds. What more could you ask for?
