On Thursday we left Venice bright and early and flew into Beauvais Airport in France (about an hour and a half outside of Paris).
This was a trip that we’d been waiting to take for a LONG time. Especially J, Mr. History Major. We sprinkled fun day trips in with the heavy historical stuff and I recommend this trip to everyone. It was wonderful.
We picked up our rental car and drove directly to Rouen, where we were spending one night.
We flew into France smack dab in the middle of a transportation strike. It delayed our flight about an hour and then the metro completely shut down in Rouen so we just walked the entire town.
It was quite lovely. I was worried about the weather on the trip, but we totally lucked out on almost all the days. It was just beautiful.
macarons for days!
Whew! That’s a lot of pictures! But I can’t help it. I want to share every moment with y’all. 🙂
Tomorrow I’ll be back with days 2 and 3- Honfleur.
