Brittany with Kids Trip Report, Episode 166


Brittany was always a place Matt wanted to visit, so he made sure to include it on his last visit to France in June/July 2017. And since the Loire Valley is right between Paris and Brittany, they decided to make a stop in Tours and visit two Loire Valley Châteaux too. We also talk about dealing with a severe food allergy in France, driving in France, and how, if you do it right, a trip to France is like going into a time machine.

This trip took Matt and his family to a lot of places that are lovely and completely off the beaten track for most visitors, somewhere they never heard a word of English. They planned to go both to both famous attractions and places that nobody ever goes to. I think they did made great choices, and if you follow in their footsteps, you'll reap the benefits!

Let's Review
