Le Mont Saint-Michel, Normandy, France
A real life postcard!
We were fortunate enough to have perfect weather when visiting this beautiful part of the world today. When the sun broke through the clouds Le Mont Saint-Michel actually looked surreal… breathtaking. I guess its one of the reasons this rocky island and its bays are part of the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites.
Inside the walls are a maze of narrow stone paths, lots of overpriced cafes, even more tourist shops and again even more tourists! Wikipedia info says the population of the island was 41 in 2006 yet it has over 3,000,000 tourists annually! Go figure.
It took us about 2 hours to walk the entire path once inside and boy were there a lot of steps. However, once up there the gorgeous vantage points of the surrounding area make it all worthwhile.
I’ve become really unfit from eating too many pastries - I need to stop eating so many pastries!
