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!
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.
I love looking at different travel blogs! As I’m writing these for the #AtoZChallenge, I’m preparing for my next trip — I leave in a week for the UK. Part of my trip is a mystery — so it should be fun to see where I end up! Happy travels to you!
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.
The stop doesn’t have to be long. It is small and easy to see. I did not mention the café where I got an espresso and could watch Canadian hockey!
