Normandy - Lower Auberges de Jeunesse


Normandy - Lower


Normandy - Lower Commentaires

I was in Cherbourg a few years years ago, when the U.S.A. had just started bombing Iraq. I was cursed, sworn at, shouted at in French, sworn at behind my back in English, cheated by the Ferry -- 100 Euro to make a two-hour crossing to Pourtsmouth. I was going to spend some days there hiking, and enjoying France, but the one night in a hostel was enough. I left the next day for Portsmouth and when I landed, I got down on my knees, and I kissed the soil of England. Never was I ever happier to be off the continent. Cherbourg does have an excellent baguette shop however -- best baguettes I ever tasted. Cherbourg is a good city to pass on your way to anywhere else.
Get a phone card. Or buy worldwide cell card. Pay phones don't take cash around Bayeux or at the Normandy beaches.
That cathedral in Bayeux is magnificent. Great arcitecture. By far the greatest cathedral in Europe.
I loved Bayeux! It is a delightful town with a fascinating history. Definitely worth a visit!
Bayeux was awesome!
Cherbourg … I had an experience in Lyon at the time of the U.S. invasion, being sworn at for being American -- and I'm English. I still love France though, and remember that a few idiots don't make the entire country.
