Just came back from Budapest, and I wanted to share something with all of you dear followers. While walking in the city center, we stumbled upon this memorial that is supposed to represent the invading Germany (the evil eagle) and the Hungarian people (represented by the archangel Michael) based on Germany’s invasion in 1944. For those that do not know or do not remember, Hungary was Germany’s ally and one of the first countries to organize the deportations of jews to the concentration camps.

Bretagne \ Port du Crouesty

Sometimes you don’t need to go far away to see beautiful places, and France has a lot of them!

Almost 4 hours away from Paris (by high-speed train or TGV and then by

car), you will find the golfe du Morbihan and in the town of Arzon, the beautiful Port du Crouesty.

There are paths along the coast, ideal for a quick trek but more than enough to enjoy the views. Although there are beautiful beaches, I do not recommend swimming here because, for example, right now the water is 10 degrees Celsius, and the rest of the year it is rarely above 20 degrees. You’ve been warned!
