February vacation

So for February vacation I got to stay for a week in a city near Nantes.

I was with a wonderful family. They were really friendly and I enjoyed seeing a new region of France. The West coast of France is really beautiful and makes me think of Maine, which I think isn't a coincidence, because the depatment is called "Maine et Loire."

I got to visit a couple castles, and an art museum. I got to see the castle at Pornic of the infamous "barbe bleu."

I discovered that my name originates from the region right next to where I was! Yvette is the saint of the poor.

I ate a gallette for the first time. (It was delicious).

It's something kind of like a crepe, except brown in color, and it's not something that's meant to be sweet. Inside you can put cheese, ham, eggs, etc.

I visited La Baule, one of the biggest beaches in Europe. We didn't go swimming of course, because it was too cold and windy. Although we did see a few windsurfers.

I really enjoyed my vacation and am very greatful to have come to France with AFS, because without AFS I am not sure I would've been able to visit so much of France.
