I tuned into my local news channel the other night to hear of jubilant crowds in France cheering on Francois Hollande, the newly elected president of France. To be honest I don't follow politics much but it moved me , so much so I wanted to be there!!
Thinking back to my trips to France in the past, I remember the friendliness and hospitality of the people.
I remember their passion for food and art. It's been a while. I think a trip back to France is long overdue..my boyfriend would disagree.....but watch this space!
Sincere apologies for my long absence...I had promised to provide updates on my trip to Rennes - I am so sorry it has taken me this long. I visited Rennes in July 2015. I had not long recovered from cancer and my husband was kind and understanding enough to realise this was what I needed to experience once more what I truly love - GOING TO FRANCE!
I visited Rennes over several days....my first thought on descending the plane was that ''I wish I had packed welly boots'' as it had been raining before the plane landed! I had no other footwear other than sandals for the trip - due to previous trips to France - I predicted that the weather would be nice.
My visit was a really interesting one. I stayed in a hotel in the Old Town part of Rennes. a perfectly centrally located base for doing all my exploring....
I took many photos during my stay - here are some of them:
