Under 4000 people commune in Loire Atlantique, western France. Yes, it’s small. It’s like walking in real life Beauty and the Beast though. All that classic old French town springs to life. This is a quiet town. Nothing is jumping out, but it is just so pleasant to stroll around. Fantastic escape from city life!
This is an experience sharing post. Loads of photos.
This garden is another member of 日本三名園 Nihon Sanmeien, Three Great Gardens of Japan. The other 2 gardens are: Kairakuen of Mito and Kenrokuen of Kanazawa. Unlike my epic weather failed Kairakuen visit, this time, it was only cloudy and did not rain. LOL Celebration! haha
It was a city get away that I highly cherished. Stunning experience! It was just a train ride away in London zone 6 rail. This was 45min cave tour lead by a wonderful guide / actor / entertainer, Peter. He sang, bellowed and whispered stories of druids, people and ghost that stayed in this same cave. In the darkness, let the imagination ran wild…
The weather was not working with me that day, but it did not diminish this beauty. Kairakuen is one of the official top 3 gardens of Japan. What criteria do they use to derive this? I do not know 😛 It is an official title though, Kairakuen is one of the Three Great Gardens of Japan (日本三名園 Nihon Sanmeien). The other 2 are Korakuen of Okayama and Kenrokuen of Kanazawa.
Clue Quest was a live escape room ‘adventure’; aka locked up in a room for 60min. We signed up for the Operation Blacksheep. It was a save the world mission!! That evil professor Blacksheep was trying to take over the world!!! It was up to us to save mankind…
I have lived in this hood for about 9 months. Things are already getting quite ‘stale’ lol. One day, I decided to fresh things up and take a different route. Voila, lost *lol*. It took me an additional 30min to get home, but hey, eventually I got home. Anyhow, this has now become a habit.
This tour was a true test on stamina and endurance. How much one can eat has a direct impact on enjoyment 😀 There were 6 stops. Each stop was rich and evil.
Yey! Another ferry ride at Port Blanc. Love doing that. Baden was quite the spot for island hopping. The islands were wine & party ready, but in the French chic way (not Phi Phi, Thailand). The accuracy of what’s going on was sketchy, given that I only understood 30% of the time. This was part of my immersion French course.
Do I need to say much? 😉 Photo loaded post.
