    If you're travelling west from Le Havre make sure to go over the Pont du Normandie. It's a huge bridge! It's an amazing view when you approach it!!! It's unfortunately a toll bridge as well. It costs 33 Francs (approx. 5 Euros) to drive over it.

    I came by car but I left for England on this ferry. I love travelling by boat. It gives you a different perspective of your surroundings and there're no traffic lights.I spent a lot of time exploring the town by car. It took a little while to get used to the rules about right of way. Most of the time I was parked by the beach walking up and down...

    All the restaurants and shops at Mont St. Michel looked like tourist traps. I don't know for sure but I'm sure they are really expensive!

  • Beaujolais Nouveau Night !

    I was asked a few years ago to work for a few days here in Le Havre. Although my English and American colleagues had to work through to Saturday, I explained that I was returning to England on Friday morning. We all were due to meet up at my hotel lobby after work and a quick shower to have a group meal at a well rated restaurant. The others were...

    Watch the waves crash on the sea wall at the port. I spent many hours watching waves crash on this wall protecting the boats. There always seemed to be a storm coming in when I was there. Sometimes the waves would crash completely over this wall so protect your camera.
