My last day in wonderful Normandy and I can without a single doubt say it was my favourite day. One reason for that might be the endless blue sky, not a single cloud in sight and the sunbeams resting on my nose. But the main reason for my good mood and for choosing this day my favourite, was the place we visited.
What can I say about this place? Well, it’s just WOW! It’s obviously underrated because there’s this Hype about Mont-Saint-Michel, which I loved as well, don’t get me wrong, but Saint Malo is just as beautiful if you ask me. It has all the typical things of Normandy, like Stonewalls and colourful doors and window shatters. A bit like Granville. But it doesn’t end there. There’s a surprise around every corner and the scenery can change unexpectedly. Moreover, it has these tiny Island all around the center, whose you can visit if the tide is low. Unfortunately we didn’t have the chance to do so, but if you have, definetely do it!
So, let me tell you a bit about our day, from a personaly point of view. First, we went for a typical french Crepe. I had one with Nutella, because I’ve been a chocolate-lover all my life, but the decision was not that easy because there were many toppings to choose from. Then we sat togheter at the terrace of a little cute Café, eating our Crepes and drinking hot wine. I couldn’t believe that they sell it in France the whole winter long, because in Austria it’s only around Christmastime. Obviously way to short for this amazing drink, right?. After that we went to a bookshop, because as you may already know, I freaking love books! And guess what? It was closed. Like the ones in Granville the other day. Well, it wasn’t the end of the world because what we did then was my highlight.
We went for a picnic on the beach! Sitting on the ground, listening to the sound of the ocean, enjoying our food we packed in advace and inhaling every sunray that reached us. Seriously, this beach is so beautiful with its mixture of sand and rocks. I just loved watching the waves breaking on the edge of the sharp brown rocks, that appear and disappear, depending on if the tide is high or low. As I already mentioned, the tide was too high for us to visit the island, but it didn’t matter because we just had a great time anyway. If you catch a day with weather like this, you’re probably the luckiest person on earth, and if not, I’d still recommend not to miss the chance to go to this amazing place.
