Oct 3, 2015 - Dieppe

Saturday, October 3rd We left our hilltop campsite at Fe’Camp with the beautiful view of the English Chanel and headed towards Dieppe. “Sophie” took us away from the water through pastureland where cows of all colours, sheep and horses grazed. Although Dieppe was only 80 kilometres away “Sophie” told us it would take us the better part of one and a half hours to reach it. We knew what that meant; narrow country roads with many rotaries and villages. What the heck if it was going to be a few hours why not take the scenic route. At the first...

Oct 10, 2010 - Nous sommes en FRANCE! Dieppe

Nous sommes en France!!! in a lovely seaside hotel in Dieppe. We arrived from England by ferry yesterday. (Thankfully a smooth sailing.) It's a fantastically sunny warm day here; Kirianne and I just spent the last couple hours on the beach!

We wondered around aimlessly for a while till we stumbled onto a really cheap hotel and decided to set down for the night. Not a bad place at all really. We put in our hour tour to be good Canadians but we were so...

Sep 28, 2004 - Normandy and Brittany

Hey everyone! This last weekend we took yet another awesome trip- this time to Normandy and Brittany. We headed out EARLY Friday morning and took quite a long bus ride to Caen to check out the peace memorial and museum there. Of course, it wasn't exactly architecturally stunning like the buildings of Paris, but the experience itself was incredible. We were given an hour to explore the museum, which tracked in great detail (with videos, photos, texts, and all sorts of random posters and gear and such from the time period) the events that led...
