What’s coming up: Admittedly, it has been challenging to post daily videos throughout this road trip. 😅 So, the frequency will go back to a bit of a “normal” pace when I return to our house for the summer. Meanwhile, I look forward to sharing my gorgeous Cotes d’Armor with you throughout the summer months. I love her history, a “Breizh” culture unique to the area, cuisine, artists, and beautiful villages and locations throughout the region.
Personal travel planning takeaways from this trip: I have thought a lot about what we loved 🥰 most about this journey and compared it to others. Jeff and I came up with this list that we plan on using to audit and help us plan for our future travels around France 🇫🇷
Location: We are decidedly drawn to water 🌊 and will focus on staying in places on rivers, canals, lakes, or oceans, using that as a home base to discover the micro-region.
Place: Without a doubt, mid-sized, authentic homes with loads of amenities and charm is a primary focus for us. The quality of the vacation rental means a lot to us and affects our stay significantly. We will continue to place a priority on this. ✅
Ecotourism: I would like to continue to make this another primary goal of our travels, including researching in advance locally sourced foods, farms, purveyors, auberges, cantines, and buvettes, plus ecotourism related activities. 👍👍
What do you think about this list?
Bisous and big hugs 🤗 from France,
