    3000 km französische Atlantikküste

    September 4, 2019 in France ⋅ ☀️ 18 °C

    ...solang ist es von der Bretagne bis zur spanischen Grenze, wo wir bald ankommen werden. Wir waren in der hübschen Stadt La Rochelle, natürlich bei Arcachon auf der größten Wanderdüne Europas (110 m hoch!) und leben nun ein paar Tage am südlichen Küstenabschnitt unter den typischen hohen Pinien an breiten Dünenstränden. Im September hat die Nachsaison begonnen: die Strandhütten kommen schon ins Winterlager, es gibt immer weniger Kinder um uns herum (was Bruno ärgert), entspannte Senioren und surfende Hippies. Davon werden wir uns nun mal einen zum Malen schnappen... long as it is from Brittany to the Spanish border, where we will arrive soon. We were in the pretty town La Rochelle, of course near Arcachon on the largest shifting dune of Europe (110 m high!) and enjoy now the southern coastal section under the typical high pine trees at wide dune beaches. In September the off-season has begun: the beach posts are already coming to the winter camp, there are fewer and fewer children around us (which annoys Bruno), relaxed seniors and surfing hippies. Of it we will grab now times one for painting...

    La Rochelle

    February 17, 2017 in France ⋅ 🌫 7 °C

    So sad to leave Bordeaux this morning. Super foggy walk to the bus station but very refreshing. The bus was an hour late and I made it to La Rochelle only a half hour late. Checked into my beautiful room with memory foam bed and pillows and only 12 minutes from the Gare. Quickly went out to scope the city out! Wow, another amazing place. Reminds me a bit of Granville island and Lago di Garda Italy. Spotless, art studios everywhere and gorgeous scenery. I'm hoping to meet Corinne's aunt and uncle tomorrow so I can send her a recent photo. The air is so good here, just like Bordeaux. Found the Marche and they were selling fresh oysters for what I thought was a pretty good price. Can't wait to explore tomorrow. And.....this is now Cognac country not wine as I found many Cognac boutiques and Cognac is only 25km away from here.Read more

    La Rochelle

    July 5, 2019 in France ⋅ ☀️ 27 °C

    Furgo aparcada, apestosos en chanclas y a dar una vuelta. Desayuno de campeones. Vueltecita por La Rochelle hasta encontrar un PopUp donde echar unas buenas, apetecibles y ya necesarias, primeras cervezas del viaje.Read more
