Yes we can, i.e. survive the first day at work after the vacation (which was yesterday and I’m still here so at least I can). However, on this Tuesday morning I start reminiscing (already, I know it’s pathetic) to the period of relaxation and fun that has just come to an end. What I’m thinking back to? Here’s, in brief, the story of our summer holiday 2013.
We hit the road and drove straight away to Le Pays de la Loire in France on a rainy, “thunderstormy” Saturday morning a few weeks ago. Final destination that day: Saint-Nazaire, a harbour town with a large beach and nice little bays, hidden from the living and breathing “have a break, relax & enjoy”.
After a few days we left for La Baule, another coastal town with as main features an eight-km-long beach, a beautiful shopping street (which I tried to avoid to save my wallet) and amazingly beautiful houses everywhere. Have a look:
As the weather was great (sun and a smooth sea breeze that cooled down the heat) we decided to stay in the region and went back to Saint-Nazaire after a few days. We spent our days lying on the cosy bay-beaches, reading novels and eating m&m’s. (For those who love French novels I can strongly recommend all the writings by Marc Levy as well as Guillaume Musso’s, they are fascinating and kind of touching too.)
Unfortunately, everything has to come to an end but we’re not there yet. I almost forgot:
Do you see the grey dot in the "middle end" of the picture? That was the other side of the ancient city centre of Saint-Malo, the end of the city if you want. Speaking of which (endings that is), this is it for today. Have a great Tuesday!
P.S. How do you usually deal with vacation hangovers?
