1994 - Brittany, France

A week driving around the Brittany region of France.

Another week off, this time in Brittany in north west France. I decided to take my car over on the ferry and drive around. Driving a right hand drive car on the right hand side of the road is interesting to say the least, especially when getting toll tickets and trying to overtake. Only once did I try to go around a roundabout the wrong way!

The first town I stayed was Morlaix. Nice small town with huge railway viaduct running through it. From there I did a few day trips to other parts of the area.

The next town I stayed in was Pontivy. This is a bit further south and so I could travel backwards and forwards to places on the southern coast of Brittany, especially Vannes and Carnac.

From there I had a couple of days in Paris and then back to the UK via Caen and the port of Ouistreham. I had time before the overnight ferry to go out to Sword Beach, one of the sites of the D Day landings in June 1944.
