Brace yourselves, this post contains a lot of pictures!
We started off from Brest…
On the first day of our week long Autumn break, my friend Amira kindly invited me to a one day roadtrip with her friend – merci again, habib galbi! We met up early in the morning, got a rental car and pinpointed the places we wanted to visit.
– Daoulas –
Everything including the abbey was closed so after a quick walk in the crisp early morning air, we drove on.
– Landerneau –
The morning mist looked amazing on the river and the calm city was just beginning to wake up.
– Ménez Hom –
We were just so lucky with this weather, as Brittany – Bretagne in French – is more known for its rain and gloomy-moody seaside weather. Hiking up the windy hill, we noticed a grey cloud getting closer. Luckily, all we got was a sight of a rainbow!
– Camaret-Sur-Mer –
We arrived by the sea at the low tide. I will admit this blog is more about landscapes than looks these days – a whole day and a million pictures and only one of them a somewhat outfit-like composition? Yes, it happened. And yes, I was too mesmerized by the scenery. We picked up some seashells before having a lovely seaside sandwich lunch break and heading on towards the oceanside point of Pen Hir.
– La Pointe de Pen-Hir –
Facing the Atlantic, just like that. The ocean, the sun, that beauty. While I edit my pictures, I will point out that the sky and the sea at the bayside were actually this blue.
– Douarnenez –
Tried Kouign Amann, the most buttery-sugary cake ever – in the top left corner of the picture. After walking and hiking all day I was starving but a few bites later I could barely walk, honestly. It was a tasty treat but if you are going to try it, make sure you’ve been exercising and starving the whole day prior to that.
– A Sunset in Daoulas –
After a quick road back to Daoulas, we realised the abbey was already closed so we drove on…
– Back to Landerneau –
I hope you enjoyed the content of this post as much as I enjoyed creating it! If you ever needed a reason to visit Northern France, the photos speak for themselves! À la prochaine !
