Today was our first trip outside of Paris and mom's first train ride since the 80s :) And what a great first train ride since we were on the TGV high speed train, which is such a nice smooth ride compared to the other trains I've been on. Two hours later we were in Rennes with a 3 hour stopover. After finding an internet cafe to arrange a pickup in Pontorson, we found a cafe and had some tea and yet another crepe (but finally a dessert crepe this time).
We were then off to Pontorson, which was a 45 minute train ride. Thank god we arranged a pickup, since our hotel was in the middle of no where (but 30 euros a night instead of 135 euros in Paris!) and the station was tiny with no way to figure out where we were supposed to go.
Since the sun stays out until 10:30, we stayed up and played some rummy in the garden. Quite the lovely end to the day out in the country and quite the change from busy Paris!
