    La Rochelle-day 2

    February 18, 2017 in France ⋅ ☀️ 12 °C

    Another stellar day in La Rochelle! Corinne gave me the address to her aunt and uncles place to go and say hello. I walked the beautiful park where they had a small zoo and then the beach. I arrived at the Villa Marcotte where Corinne's family lives and rang the bell. With my best French I introduced myself to Michel and told him I came by to say hello and take a couple of photos for Corinne. He said Brigitte was not home and so I shook his hand and left. Went to the beach and enjoyed the sunshine and found a fossilized rock. Found a couple of nice shells to take with me. Walked through town in search of new shoes and found a place with great sales. Bought myself a new pair of fancy running shoes with memory foam for €23.60 (60% discount). Bought myself some duck pate and beautiful baguette made from corn a beer and had my lunch back at the room. Heading to Limoges tomorrow and the bus and train schedules were crazy long and more than I wanted to pay. I booked myself into a blablacar ride, which here in Europe is great because it is private car rides for cheap and then you get to see the countryside. I have a direct trip of 3 hours booked for €17 euros. Christy and I used this from Italy to Budapest for €15 each and it was a 5.5 hour drive. Great optional way to get around!Read more
