Escaping City Life: A Day Trip to Normandy’s Capital

It’s always so nice to get out of the city and explore more of what France has to offer. Coming from a small town, sometimes living in such a huge city is a bit overwhelming for me. So, whenever I have a chance to get away for a bit, I take full advantage.

Yesterday, I went to Normandy’s capital, Rouen, and spent the day walking around and eating delicious food. 

 Rouen has so much more to offer than I would have thought. We saw about three gorgeous gothic cathedrals and the Joan of Arc church as well. The Joan of Arc one was a bit odd – weirdly shaped and huge – it juts out of the city like a black sheep. But I found it intriguing nonetheless. 

           All of the buildings throughout the entirety of the small town were all Hansel and Gretel themed and just like out of a Disney movie. The girls and I took a walk down the river as well and just enjoyed being in a peaceful area surrounded by small town mentality. 

        Man, do I love an escape from the hustle and bustle.
