Normandy … Another world

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.

Normandy seaside

A day away from Parisian life😄 Sunny weather, blue sky, white clouds… An amazing day on the coast. Eating pancakes Crêpes Never without a coffee Café crème View from the restaurant Stylish for the beachlife Walking on the beach where the Allied Forces during World War 2 landed. Here are so many memories like the remnants of the floating harbour. View of Arromanches from the beach Tractors are pulling the boats down to the waterline Walking on top of the cliffs Hey if you go straight over the cliff, you can reach England and then head for America! Salute to Villainettes sisters on the other side of the pond😘❤🇫🇷🗼😍 Never forget the names of those who fought for our freedom. Love and respect for those men and women who gave their lives so we can live in a free world. Canadian war cemetery


Normandy is just one hour away from Paris. By train or by car, you can easily visit this beautiful region.

Beaumont le Roger



The castle and the arboretum of Harcourt


A city in Friesland, North of Germany, the seaside is beautifully arranged. It’s called Südstrand.

You can eat amazing icecream.

Icecream with sausage flavoring for dogs.

You can take a ship to visit the harbour.

The German marine stations there flagships here.

Visiting the city…

The marine museum

The symbol of the city : Kaiser-Wilhelm-Brücke

Some nice buildings on the other side of the bridge. The rest of the city is in rather bad shape. Several buildings are being renovated ….


The Friesland is a region of the North of Germany. There are the isles along the coast like a snake.

The landscape is very smooth, no hights, a lot of green, prairies, kettle, small cities and villages with red brick houses.

You should definitely taste cake or a freshly prepared sandwich in a coffeeshop.

Our first B&B was an ancient farm house.

The proprietor said that dogs were allowed. But in the morning, we had a hard time to negotiate that our dog an remain with us for breakfast. She wanted us to put him in the car ….

Other negative point : only one bathroom/toilets for 11 persons.

In the evening, we ate pizza. We had to get seated outside because of our dog.

Inoui got a big wet 💋

Next day visit of a nearby forest.

And finally discovering our apartment near Wilhelmshaven in Mariensiel.
