saint malo

FRANCE | Thursday, 23 Aug 2007 | Views [399]

my cute-o-meter almost broke with all the cuteness.  this little town on the coast full of gorgeous cobbled streets, cafés, sailboats is lovingly cradled in a careful embrace by big old ramparts.  but the tourists really do get in the way

more clichéd sights and activites than you can shake a baguette at - picnicking at les jardins tuileries, fighting the crowds to see mona lisa at the louvre, a bottle of rosé under a glittering eiffel tower, getting a crink in your neck under l'arc de ... Read more >

calais

FRANCE | Saturday, 18 Aug 2007 | Views [366]

after 12 hours of travelling, i met calais.  we got on ok, although she was a little subdued, and obsessed with moules frites. and also harbouring a runaway party of intellectually challenged individuals at the local youth hostel.

seeing people hanging upside down, being held onto by a friendly paddy to kiss a piece of stone built into the wall of a falling-down castle is amusing.  it is also tradition.  it is blarney
