Mont-Saint-Michel, France

Mont-Saint-Michel is an island with a monastery and abbey, located in Normandy.
It’s an amazing place, no wonder it’s listed as the UNESCO World Heritage Site.

When I was a child, my grandmother was telling me about her visit to the Mont-Saint-Michel and since that time I wanted to go there as well.
And I wasn’t disappointed by it at all; it’s stunning and very impressive.
It’s also interesting to visit the Mont-Saint-Michel twice, to experience different tides.

Mer de Glace glacier in 2007, France

In the French Alps, you’ll find amazing glaciers, one of them is called Mer de Glace.
Go there to see the lovely scenery, but also “experience” how it’s melting and shrinking… You can compare the current view with the older pictures, and the difference is sadly huge…

Alpe d’Huez, France

Winter in snowy French mountains can be lovely.

But winter in Paris, when the weather is quite extreme, may be muddy, rainy, and annoying or surprising. Everything is possible…
I experienced nice winter in Paris, but also a very bad one with e.g., lots of flight cancellations because it was snowing a bit and nobody was prepared for it…

Autumn – here warm and sunny;
rainy, cold and “better stay home” is also possible.

Arcachon, France

Summer and a romantic sunset by the ocean.

I rather avoid, if possible, traveling to France in summer;
it may be charming,
it may be crowded…
