Ëtretat is a small town in the north of Normandy, close to Le Havre. If you are making a trip through the north of France, we definitely recommend taking a pitstop in this town with its amazing cliffs right at the beach!
Dunkirk (French: Dunkerque, Flemish: Duinkerken) is a small city located in the province of Normandy, France. It is located next to the North Sea and has an impressive harbor (3rd biggest of France) but more known for the Battle of Dunkirk during World War 2 in 1940. The city has a lot of impressive sites to visit to give you a look in the past. In this blog we will share with you our take on the places you should visit!
Oh man, what did I love driving over this impressive bridge! Pont de Normandie (or in English Normandy Bridge) is an impressive bridge built over the Seine river. What makes the view special is that the Seine river meets the ocean, giving a spectacular sight we also encountered in the Amazon river where 2 different types of water meet! With a total length of 2,143.21 meters this bridge can be viewed from far!
We crossed it by car to go to Deauville from Le Havre (toll is € 5,50 one way in August 2020), but did you know you can cross this bridge for free as a pedestrian or cyclist? See below some pictures of this amazing sight. Be sure to include a trip through this bridge when you are in the Normandy area :-)!
After a few days in Switzerland we drove 6 hours to the capital of France, Paris!
There we went to Louvre, up the Eiffel tower (not worth it) and enjoyed the shopping streets. For a quick overall look see the pictures below 🙂
