Etretat

  As I type today’s post and gaze out of the window, the sunshine and warm temperatures that had been the norm for the last several weeks are now but a mere distant memory. Instead, in their place are grey skies, wind, and rain. As you can imagine, I am really missing the beach right ...
Mount St Michel

  France is a country I can’t help but be in awe at. Their countryside is beautiful, their weather is surprisingly pleasant, the architecture there is second to none, and the food is simply out of this world.

Calais Hotel-de-Ville

  At the behest of one of them, a group of four friends decided to embark upon a historical tour. Given their shared fascination with the fantastic effort of the D-Day landings, the destination was predictable: Normandy. Precisely 75 years (and almost a month, but I won't tell if you won't) after the momentous event ...
