Exploring the walls and beaches of St Malo

Posted by on in European Travel

During the recent school spring holidays we spent a week based in Rennes, in Brittany, exploring parts of northern and western France that we as a family didn’t know.  We visited places that had long been on the “desperately want to see” list (I don’t do “bucket lists”) including weird and wonderful Nantes, iconic UNESCO World Heritage site Mont St Michel and the magnificent walled town of St Malo.

A random act of kindness

Posted by on in Blogging

There is almost nothing better as a blogger than getting unexpected and random appreciative feedback in the form of emails from unknown readers.  We all love comments and social media shares, in fact we rely on them to help get the blog post seen, but when someone who has never manifested themselves before gets in touch to thank you for something you've written, well that just warms your heart.
