Life in Paris

Bonjour travellers,

I am running a bit behind with keeping you updated with our activities, but that’s just cause I have been stuck inside most time studying for my mid-terms or gallops as they are also referred to here. Today I want to continue our Life in Paris series with a little extract about our weekend trip to Angers.

Angers is a city in Western France, about 190 kilometres away from Paris. With the train it takes less than two hours to get there which is pretty quick for such a distance! It used to be at the heart of the Plantagenet dynasty and its medieval center remains to be significantly characterised by its history.

Angers is surrounded by three rivers: the Loir, the Sarthe and the Mayenne. It also has a lake called Lac de Maine, which Moritz explored on his morning run in Angers.

On our evening we opted for a spontaneous dinner at a little restaurant that was suggested to us by the hotel. The receptionist made a reservation for us on the roof-top table, which was very nice due to the great weather that day.  We had a three-course meal for an exceptional price – something you would hardly find in Paris!

The next day we toured through the city, the medieval parts as well as the castle. But you will find out more about the important touristic sites of Angers in our City Guide posted later!

Until then I hope you’ve enjoyed reading!

A bientôt,

Anna et Moritz
