So near to Paris yet such a different universe. Going to Normandy is our weekend escape from the never-ending rush in Paris.
You can just decide to spend a day or two in Normandy without especially preparing your trip. Meadows and woods, small villages, castles … Just take this road or the other one and you will be certainly discover a hidden gem.
Visiting a castle and its arboretum created during the 19th century.
After the visit of the castle and its gardens return to the village and take time for a snack.
Every last weekend of July Bad Kissingen hosts the Rakoczy Fest. The festival lasts during 3 days. The highlight is the parade on Sunday and finishing the festival with big fireworks in the evening. The festival tells part of the city’s life as a cultural and health center of Germany in the 19th century. A lot of princes, military and other important celebrities came to Bad Kissingen to get benefit of the healing sources. Today the city is still known as a medical spot and is appreciated nationwide.
On our way back from the North we quit the highway for a break. As I had never visited Göttingen, I was happy to spend some time in this beautiful city. You can judge by the pics that the city center is quite well preserved with a lot of beautiful ancient buildings.

I wanted to publish an article friday night, saturday and then arrived sunday… I hadn’t found the appropriate words to express my utter desolation. Only one word comes to me :
How can human beings commit such atrocités?
Why kill innocent people to punish a government’s actions?
Why such hate?
I republish this picture of the memory tree I encountered on the beach in Normandy. We should never forget the horrors of WW2. We should love and share this world in a sensible way.
I just sax this phrase of Mahatma Gandhi on instagram :
“An eye for an eye will only make the whole world blind. ”
In spite of the terrible events, I was and am still happy to celebrate my husband’s birthday : 55 rounds of the sun.
