I went there for three weeks of holidays. I was with my grand-parents, and I had been killing everybody for years to go visit the region. We went to Finistère, which is to me ‘the last land’ before the ocean. It’s got something special.
We went near a town called Plouescat, nice people who rent the ground floor of their house, not for a too expensive cost. And they were very kind. I know this place is said to be very rainy, but actually during the three weeks we stayed, the weather was nearly beautiful all the time ; I think it rained two or three days only. Anyway, I loved the place maybe more with the rain and the wind. I walked on the land, all along the ocean, and expected to see ghosts floating around the houses of stone. It’s very typical, and it gives a very authentic atmosphere. Everything has a special spirit there, like if even the stone was dwelled with energy. The pavements, the seashore, the houses. Natural magic spell.
We celebrated my 13th birthday there. And so I asked if we could go to a typical tavern. I wanted to feel once like a real pirat before we go back home. We ate *real ‘crêpes’, and I was allowed to drink (one glass) of ‘chouchen’ (Hydromel + calva). It tastes very sweet, and makes very happy :)
I shall go back there.
