Brittany 2013


These are some thoughts on our holiday in Brittany during September.
We spent two weeks in a little gite in northern Brittany near La Roche Derrien.
It was a beautiful time spent in the quiet of the country surrounded by chickens, geese, and goats. We had the car and the bikes with us and were able to explore the area to our heart’s content.

Some thoughts on living in the area:
Generally people seemed to smoke more. The Irish attempt to give up seemed to be miles ahead.
The roads were in a very good condition and the drivers were very generous to us cyclists.
The cost of living at the local supermarket was at least 20% lower than we are experiencing in Cork.
Eating out was yet again cheaper and the standard of service and the quality of the menu was much higher.

Gite, bike and himself...
