    Half-timbered houses

    Favorite thing: Also in Caen, like in Angers and in other French cities, you will see a lot of half-timbered houses like those you see here. One of them hosts the Musée de la Poste, which I didn't visit. I really like this kind of house.

    Favorite thing: Start every morning with a butter or chocolate filled croissant from the Boulangerie on Rue St Pierre- easily the best in town!

    Fondest memory: Seeing the chateau every day and having a glass of Bordeaux rouge in Cafe Le broc
