After three days in Paris, Will and I will be rested and ready to explore the rest of France. We are heading west towards Spain and we will have to make a choice.
Choice one is to head north to the city Rouen, then along the Normandy coast to Brittany. On the border of Normandy and Brittany is Mont-St-Michel. This route adds a day to our itinerary as the coast of Brittany is a two hundred mile circuit.
Choice two is to go directly west and then south to Orleans, Tours, and the Loire Valley. This route eliminates Normandy and Brittany and connects up with either Nantes or Poitiers. Eventually, we will reach the region of Bordeaux.
