R is for Rouen


I was looking forward to seeing Rouen, France.I was not sure why or what to expect, but this is truly a charming place to visit with some wonderful architecture. This is also famous for its connection to Joan de Arc. I was so engrossed in the architecture, that I walked into a cement pylon and fell — but my camera (and I) were fine and I got the picture!

  1. Out blog hopping from North Carolina during the #Challenge. It took me a minute to know that your theme, the clarity of your blog, was right up my alley. Went right to the FOLLOW by e-mail button. Looking forward to arm chair travel with you. Visiting you on the R letter day. I have been writing about hotels and inns and today it is about a hotel in Rome, Italy that I used in a second novel. I wish I were writing to you from there tonight, but having fun with the AtoZ, nonetheless. Hope you are too. Come see me if you have time or interest. Cheers.

  2. I’ve passed Rouen a few times, journeying between our old home in England and our present home in central France. Perhaps on my next trip, I should take the A13 and A28, instead of the A16 to get from Paris to the tunnel – that would let me stop off in Rouen and have a look around.
