NetflixTiein

Wanderlusty Wednesday: Normandy in Spring

JPEG image-E91A0AE94570-1

A brief break in the reading and writing content today for me to reminisce on the fact that it’s been 10 years since I left Normandy, and still, it’s rare a day will go by that I don’t think of that place and my experiences there.

I still think it’s the most underrated area of France to visit — most people I know who’ve been there have taken a day trip from Paris to see the beaches and that’s it. But I maintain it’s a place you could spend a year in and still not take it all in.

So in case you’re considering a trip to the Contentin peninsula sometime soon, I highly recommend going in spring. And in case you need ideas on what to do …

Stop in Honfleur

Bayeux

… Rouen

… and Étretat.

See the beaches

… and take a stopover in Saint-Malo

… and Jersey (the island, not the state).

Don’t let public transport get you down

… talk to strangers

… and maybe bring some company in case you don’t like traveling alone.

And of course, go to Giverny while you’re there.
