Exploring Fougeres in Bretagne
was just sitting on the steps infront of the church in Fougeres, waiting to find out our next destination. We had spent the entire day touring the castle in Fougeres, the church and the nearby gardens. We were all exhausted, which explains why we're relaxing and joking around on these steps. These moments were always fun. (By the way, I'm the girl in the white Fougeres t-shirt)
learn about the local economy!...
learn about the local economy! Ok, I admit, this really isn't a 'must' - but here's a brochure illustrating Fougeres' main industries! Yes, for those who thrive by stereotypes, France's economy is more than just wine and cheese...
was visiting the school Terese St-Pierre the second full day we were in Fougeres. I was able to sit in during their English class. The teacher assigned us to read parts of a book to her class so her students could hear a 'proper English accent' - of course, once we started to read, the students looked confused and looked up at their teacher with questioning eyes, almost as if to say, 'are you SURE that's a proper accent?!' The teacher then chuckled and told us, 'They're used to hearing accents from England, they're not used to hearing Canadian accents'. It was rather funny all together. We were able to tour around the entire school, and we also had lunch at their cafeteria. Here's a picture of the Canadian students and the students of Terese St-Pierre infront of the school before we left.
When you visit each town and city, there are usually information centres where you can pick up free maps. Take one! They'll give you a visualization of the areas you're visiting. Not only that, but you can discover so much more with a map, and you won't get lost! Here's a map of the town of Fougeres in Bretagne.
Fougeres is a medieval town located on the River Nancon in Eastern Brittany.
It is home to a magnificent medieval castle which is well worth a visit if you find yourself in the area with a couple of hours to spare.
