At about 250 km north-west from Paris, walking on the coast of Normandy, we came across 5 legendary beaches, visited every year by many tourists, especially Americans. From East to West, facing the English Channel, they are: Sword Beach, Juno Beach , Gold Beach, Omaha Beach and Utah Beach. These places bear the mark of WWII and give everyone an important history lesson.
We came to Giverny on a beautiful Spring morning and left our car in a parking place close to the painter’s house. The village was small and you could easily guess where every tourist was going. The weather was beautiful, just perfect to take a trip into Claude Monet ’s beautiful gardens.
A few months ago, as I was preparing for our road trip to the north of France , I started searching the internet for information about the weather out there in April. We wanted to visit Lannion, Saint Malo, Mont Saint Michel, Fougeres plus a part of the Loire Valley and a good weather would have helped us.
If you find yourself in the north west of France, Mont Saint Michel is definitely one destination you should think about, whether you are a pilgrim or just a tourist. You cannot help yourself from noticing this legendary fortress even from a large distance and remain mesmerized by its immensity and castle looking shape.
