This time next month I'll be in Rennes, hopefully recuperating from visiting the second-largest flea market in France a couple of days before (if it's not canceled like the one in Lille was:(
I'm staying for about a month and I've read/researched a lot. But of course, there's still that fear of missing out on something and I'd appreciate the expertise of anyone who's already been.
Rennes will be my home base but I'm not averse to some overnight trips. I've a little over 2 weeks solo and then the hubby will join me.
St Malo is my first destination (influenced by Anthony Doerr's best seller), Fougeres, Vitres, Vannes, Dinard and Dinan are other places I've in mind. I'd like to make it to Ile de Brehat. I love medieval architecture. Not interested in oysters or the big rocks. If I could go puffin or penguin watching, that would be memorable.
The hubby and I have plans for Nantes (we want to ride that elephant thing; silly but I can't help it:) and Mont St Michel in Normandy.
I keep toying with the idea of a 48-hour jaunt over to London, tempted by the cheap airfare from Dinard, but it seems quite a feat to get there without a car?
Does anyone have any experience with the bus system. I've used the rome2rio site for searches and bus fair seems very cheap.
I'm open to any suggestions, words of advice!
