Our recent France travel guides you on the latest of our two week France travel vacations.
Our vacation to France this year was the first two weeks in September. Below is my travel journal with links to more details, yes not officially a blog because I left my computer at home. Yeah! I took lots of great photos though!
Travel itineraries are difficult to put together. We wanted to explore the Dordogne where we’ve never been plus add a visit to Brittany and Paris. After a lot of research I created the itinerary which you can follow below and see how our 2 weeks unfolded. (actually for us it was 12 days).
Signs at CDG airport for trains
This first day started with 11 hours of air travel to France with one of the daily Delta/Air France flights to Paris Charles de Gaulle airport. Learn where to get the trains at CDG into Paris and beyond, learn where we discovered to rest before the train (needless to say we were tired).
3 days in Brittany
Monday, September 5th – Wednesday, September 7th
We started in the quaint family village in the south of Brittany then to the stunning Pink Granite Coast in the north on the English Channel. Discover where to eat, best beaches…
