France: Oceanapolis, Brest

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!

France: Perros-Guirec

Ok, so we don’t have any idea what to see in this area. We just took a chance and roam around the place and looked at the net for ideas.

We ended up in Perros-Guirec.

We decided to eat our breakfast at Cafe du Bourg which is also a bar. They have this typical french breakfast which includes croissants, baguette and jam with coffee. This place is just right across Eglise St- Jacques, so eating breakfast was a luxury with this view.

After our breakfast, we decided to walk around the town.The town is charming and have their own styles. It is alive and we literally saw lots of french holding their baguettes. Just be reminded that french have their lunch break that will last at least an hour, this means that their establishments may be closed.

Eglise St. Jacques

We did not have a chance to go inside the said church for there was an important ceremony going on. But seeing it from the outside was enough for me to appreciate the beauty of this church.

Walking around the town, you will see some cute buildings and the smell of bread being baked are very strong. It’s lovely!

From the little town, we decided to walk further and saw the view of the gorgeous sea.

After walking up and down the hill for 2 kilometers, we finally reached the pretty beach that we saw from afar, it’s called Plage de Trestraou. It is a big beach with beautiful sea. It’s a shame that we we’re not able to swim and experience the beach since we visited during the winter season.

Along their boulevard, there are lots of restaurants and places where you can stay and relax. It was not busy during our visit, so we we’re glad that we had the time to appreciate every little details of this little town.
