Bretagne and back – Days 4 & 5

Landeda – Camping les Abers Nous sommes arrivons – 26th June 2019 Having driven through rain, into sunshine, arrived at our 3-night campsite and settled in with a beautiful sunset the night before – the rain then followed us. I’m not a superstitious bloke but I can’t help the holiday gods have got it in […]

Bretagne and back – Day 3

Dramatic coast, mist and a moustached bale. Brittany in our grasp – 25th June 2019 Leaving Treguier was a little sad as it was such a lovely spot – we could easily have stayed another day or two and explored further, but we had an appointment to keep at Camping les Abers near Landeda. Once […]
