And now it's time for me to share my summer travelling experience which has been in Northern France this year. I just came back yesterday and the memories are still fresh and overwhelming! I was extremely lucky to actually get so many sunny shots, as usually summer in the Bretagne is pretty much non-existent.
I stayed at a hotel in Roscoff and travelled by train to discover some cities nearby.
Roscoff itself was extremely charming, with beautiful views of the sea, and the restaurants were to die for!!! Fresh sea food and fish made every lunch or dinner a huge & delicious feast!! :D
St. Pol de Leon, Morlaix and Dinan - such cute and antique looking cities, typical examples of the architecture of the region. Most of the houses there are built out of stones and with wooden details.
And of course Rennes, the capital of the Bretagne, serves as the perfect combination of antique elements in the city centre, and a more modern part - definitely worth a visit as well!!!
Have any of you ever been to that part of France? Or maybe even visited the same cities? I'd love to hear about your experiences :)

cute little streets of Roscoff, creperies on each and every corner luring you inside with all the delicious smells!! ^^

another trip the next day - to antique and medieval looking Dinan
visiting Rennes - typical wooden houses in the city centre
the contrasting sides of Rennes - classical architecture in the city centre & skyscrapers in the background
the next trip was to an island near Roscoff - Ile de Batz

just spent hours & hours walking around there and enjoying the incredible scenery!!
and this is what the incredible sunrises looked like I woke up to every morning thanks to the seaview right outside the hotel room window
