A small escape from Paris and we end up in Brittany to visit the Presqu’île (= “almost-Island”) of Le Mont-Saint-Michel.
Inside Mont Saint Michel Monastery, Fred’s initiated a new jumping style: the praying jump ! Good job 🙂
Sintra is a little village outside Lisbon, facing the Atlantic, and now part of UNESCO World Heritage. At the top of the hill, lies the Pena National Palace. This 19th century palace, offering outstanding views of the surroundings, is what could be a palace out from a Disney movie with many colors, towers and mix between different styles across centuries (from middle age castles, to renaissance palaces and Moorish architecture).
Mauritius at this time of the year is awesome. Everage temperature is 28°C (sea water at 26°C), paradise island with many colorful animals, cheerful people, tropical fruits and white sand beaches. As one would say: what else ?
These pictures below were taken on a small island on the west of Mauritius, called L’Ile aux Cerfs.
Quoting Wikipedia: “Founded in the 10th century, the Rila Monastery is regarded as one of Bulgaria’s most important cultural, historical and architectural monuments and it is a key tourist attraction for both Bulgaria and Southeastern Europe as a whole.”
It took us 4 hours driving to find that Monastery. It seems that GPS maps of Bulgaria are not as accurate as they could be 🙂
The monastery is lost in the mountains and I wouldn’t like to spend a whole winter here!
