To Bordeaux. French hostels are open all day – good! Trains in France seem so fast and efficient after Italy and Spain.
To Saumur on the Loire River, swam in an Olympic-sized pool. Crêpes and apricot jam. To the château, neat museum and horse museum. Tour of wine cellar – yum.
To Angers, to Quimperlé, had soupe aux poissons with croûtons and shredded cheese. Brittany and Normandy are lovely – rolling hillsides, wooded and fielded, towns are so picturesque, all white or all stone with red roofs or black roofs, with a church always dominating and majestic, often on a higher central piece of land.
