A Roadtrip Through Brittany in an Autumnal Heartbeat

Brace yourselves, this post contains a lot of pictures!

We started off from Brest…

On the first day of our week long Autumn break, my friend Amira kindly invited me to a one day roadtrip with her friend – merci again, habib galbi! We met up early in the morning, got a rental car and pinpointed the places we wanted to visit.

– Daoulas –

Everything including the abbey was closed so after a quick walk in the crisp early morning air, we drove on.

– Landerneau –

The morning mist looked amazing on the river and the calm city was just beginning to wake up.

– Ménez Hom –

We were just so lucky with this weather, as Brittany – Bretagne in French – is more known for its rain and gloomy-moody seaside weather. Hiking up the windy hill, we noticed a grey cloud getting closer. Luckily, all we got was a sight of a rainbow!

– Camaret-Sur-Mer –


We arrived by the sea at the low tide.  I will admit this blog is more about landscapes than looks these days – a whole day and a million pictures and only one of them a somewhat outfit-like composition? Yes, it happened. And yes, I was too mesmerized by the scenery. We picked up some seashells before having a lovely seaside sandwich lunch break and heading on towards the oceanside point of Pen Hir.

Facing the Atlantic, just like that. The ocean, the sun, that beauty. While I edit my pictures, I will point out that the sky and the sea at the bayside were actually this blue.

– Douarnenez –

Tried Kouign Amann, the most buttery-sugary cake ever – in the top left corner of the picture. After walking and hiking all day I was starving but a few bites later I could barely walk, honestly. It was a tasty treat but if you are going to try it, make sure you’ve been exercising and starving the whole day prior to that.

After a quick road back to Daoulas, we realised the abbey was already closed so we drove on…

– Back to Landerneau –

I hope you enjoyed the content of this post as much as I enjoyed creating it! If you ever needed a reason to visit Northern France, the photos speak for themselves! À la prochaine !
