10 days in France, part II: the South of Brittany

Hullo there! I’m back again with more stories about my fantastic road trip through the west of France, more precisely Brittany. You see, Brittany seems to be so large that a drive from the north of Brittany to its south lets the temperature rise for about 10 degrees (Celsius). Not kidding! From the beginning: We started early Monday morning, and note that I wore long blue jeans, a t-shirt and a jacket. It was a bit misty, but as usual the air was clear and salty.

Off we went, and after some time driving south we could see on the dashboard that the temperature would slowly rise, degree by degree. I really got excited to finally feel some summer! When we arrived in Vannes, our first destination, I was more than happy to ditch the jacket. And I would have exchanged my blue jeans if I could.

Part II: Brittany, Carnac

About the south of Brittany: Yes, it is definitely hotter down here, more Mediterranean (although we’re still at the Atlantic Ocean) and a bit more touristy. Expect long beaches, beach bars and sunbathing people, quite a change to the north. Carnac and the south of Brittany was such a contrast for us, we really needed to sit down for a moment and just enjoy the sun before throwing ourselves back into adventure. As I have written before, we started our time in the south in Vannes because our accommodation wasn’t ready yet. We spend some time there and then headed further south to visit the town of Carnac and have a nice lunch at the beach. What a feeling of vacation!
