We were invited to go to a park that is near from where we live.
We thought that the activity will be only walking in the woods, but we were wrong. This includes a little petting zoo and children's playground.
But that is not the only thing that it can offer, it can also give you a clear picture and proof that you are in Holland because of the nearby windmill that is picturesque enough to enjoy natures charm.
We did enjoy the day and it is best to visit this place when it is sunny for it can be muddy during raining months.
Just a quick visit to Sneek, Friesland.
It's a little city in one of the Provinces of The Netherlands which is in Friesland.
The thing that I liked about this place, is their bridge, where you can see the port. It have it's own charming looks. We did not go further and explored the place, since we were here for other interest. But since we got a little view of the place, we might consider to go again and enjoy the little city.
Last year 25th of April 2016, I celebrated my birthday with the fishes and other marine life.
So from our location, Trelevern, we thought of going to another big city and it is called Brest. It is an hour and half drive from our place of stay.
We planned some indoor travel this time since we knew that Bretagne would be pouring rain again.
First impression of Oceanapolis, it’s a big building. They have a big parking lot (it’s free) and you have to walk at the near entrance.
Entering the said attraction, at first we were confused where to go since you have some themes to choose from. The place is huge and there are a lot of portals where you can go to see their main attraction. It is a bit unclear on where we should start, but then we just followed the map and just go with the flow. We tried to visit all of it.
But all in all, we found nice fishes, sharks, penguins and other marine life. They have big tanks and happy for that!
This would be a great outing for kids and for the ones who love aquariums when you are in Brest!
Since we are staying for a week in Bretagne, France and we have enough time to do side trips. We decided to finally try the very known boat trip that is given in the region. We first planned when to go since you have to or at least have a ticket reservation for the said trip.
It was a cold, sunny and somehow raining hail day. But we still decided to go on top of the boat so we can get a full view of the islands that we are going to visit. The trip consists of visiting the 7 islands around Brittany. The only thing that made me a bit annoyed that the tour was spoken in French, so we have no idea on what the tour guide was talking about. The tour guide did not even bother that there are lots of non-French speakers during the tour, but we grasp on what we can somehow understand by making connection on what he says on the surroundings.
As we sailed our way to the 7 islands, we got hailed. I mean hail fell on us and just to include, I got a very funny video of us during the event.
Our 7 islands trip experience
Moving forward, one of the island is full of birds. There are lots of birds that are just chilling in the island. It stinks, it smells like birds! haha. But looking at the birds that are freely flying and resting made the trip worthy.
After visiting the other islands, we stopped in an island for half an hour and let us enjoy the serenity of the place. We got a very nice view of the whole sea with its islands.
The tour is good in other ways. It wasn’t the best sailing trip due to raining hail, but the experience it gives to be able to tour one of France’ island is enough to say that it is worth the trip. It is nice that they protected the bird island. It gives them a chance to fly freely and live.
