Brittany

I’m just back from a little trip in Brittany (France). The reason was to attend a family reunion. Every 2 years, families from my dad’s side who live all over France meet up for a 4 day long week-end. It is a nice time for all of us to catch up with each other and spend a bit of time together. Not everyone can come as it is impossible to agree on a date when everyone is availabe. This time, there were about 50 of us. We usually rent a whole gite (self catering accomodation) and this time we rented the Maison Familiale Rural de Rumengol.

PS: I just found out that my 14 years cousin Irina has a blog (in french with a bit of english) since she was 11. You can read it here: vintagedream.canalblog.com

I’ll be back soon with lots of pictures of the garden.
