I went there under duress some years ago. It rained. I wanted to go to Monet’s garden at Giverny, art and nature in one, much more in line with my interests. We got back to our hotel in Rouen to find it had been sunny all day.
C’est la vie.
I wouldn’t go there again. But hundreds of thousands do, so who am I to say?
I did enjoy a trip to that area of France on the motorbike. Great roads off the tolls. Quaint towns and fairytale castles.
