A week-end in Brittany

This post is also available in : French

A friend of mine and I wanted to escape a bit from busy Paris, craving to breath some fresh air without spending a huge amount of money….

We had a look at the prices of flights, trains and rental car to see if we could escape on a roadtrip for a day or 2, being near the ocean or the sea would be a bonus….

I then realised that I had a friend in Concarneau, that I havn’t seen for a while (since she left Paris to moove back there, few years ago…)

and here we were : booking a train to Brest for 60€ roundtrip, and a rental car for 2 days 100€, we’ll sleep at my friend’s place, and I’ll knit while in the train ! 🙂

And that’s then in August then, that I get the chance to discover Brittany ! 🙂

We were Lucky enough to be there, in Concarneau during the music festival festival des filets bleus,so I get the chance to admire traditional Britan outfit wore by “bigouden”  🙂 <3




And listen to traditional music 🙂

but most of all, to finally get to taste the very famous desert Kouign Amann  and well, in case you don’t know me, you have to know that I had 2 of them ! (because it was sooooooooooo good !) 🙂

So here is a good reason to discover Brittany 🙂

Kouign Amann-2


Concarneau is a lovely town, with an old historic district, I really loved it 🙂

The next day, we drove to Pointe du Raz, and we were lucky enough to have a beautiful weather, quite sunny but also really windy. No rain ! which blows up all my clichés about Brittany 😉

Pointe du Raz-3

I felt in love with these tiny purple flowers that were all over the ground there 🙂

We then drove along the coast a little bit…





and stop at  Locronan, to have lunch. Locronan is one of the most prestigious (historically) place in Brittany, beautiful old architecture, very preserved, I loved it ! 🙂



And then we quickly drive back to Brest where our train back to Paris was waiting for us.

We stayed in Brittany for a bit more than 24hours, but this escape was exactly what we were looking for.

It gave me the chance to discover a region I didn’t know, but that I feel I could totally fall in love with.

And it costs us about the same price as an evening in Paris drinking cocktail + restaurant + fancy dessert !


so I’LL HAVE TO BE BACK THERE ! 🙂 (but maybe stay a little bit longer this time, in order to take more photos)

Hi there


Photographer, traveler, and silly knitter

Alone, driving a car for miles and miles, with a good music playlist, my cameras on the passenger seat.

Witnessing the beauty of a landscape, or the raw feeling of real love, emotions and bonds people may have with each other and sometimes crying just because this is just so beautiful...

That's where my best memories come from... and photos too :)

Andalusian in my heart, I've been dancing sevillanas (flamenco) for more than 12 years, I also spent 2 years living in USA. (I'm deeply in love with Oregon and the Pacific Northwest area)

Native French, I do speak English, and Spanish and love learning about cultural differences

Feel free to contact me  for further informations :)
