Ouest France


Months after it appeared in the French newspaper, Ouest France, we were finally sent a copy of a short piece they did about our trip. A journalist from the newspaper happened to be loitering around the campsite we were staying in, perhaps looking into rumours of a local pied piper that Linda wrote about previously, and when he spotted us decamping with all of our gear (having stayed one night in the campsite, not a week as suggested by the article), he came over to ask us a few questions. The only reason we knew the article existed was that after it appeared we got a number of e-mails from Ouest France readers wishing us well and, in some cases, offering us a bed for a night. Offers we were never able to take up, but it was nice to receive such kindness from strangers we hadn't even met.

Wow Linda. That is so touching. It's amazing the kindness of strangers when your traveling. When your out there you realize just how small the world really is. Thinking of you. x

That's brilliant! You should keep the details of all accommodation offers and show up (with extended family of course) waving the article in five years when we have lots more sprogs in tow! Free holidays here we come!! Yahoo!
