France, Rennes

Marche d'lis, Rennes, France
I spent four months living in this city, and I grew very fond of it. It is actually a beautiful place to live, very neat and secure, the only thing I missed was having a beach in the city, but other than that the place is in several way the perfect place to live.

There are two universities in the city, having thus a very young population, and very good nightlife, with lots of places to have a good beer (very good beer also), and the typical beverage of the Bretagne region, cider, great cider.

I had the time of my life there, met wonderful people; I guess I’ll just let the
pictures do the talking.

I found your page through a search for Rennes (through Wikipedia), I just wanted to say that I enjoyed your pictures! I just got back from a 5-month semester abroad in Rennes, and I LOVED it. I miss it so much.

I'm sure you know of O'Connell's? Haha. Anyway -- bon week-end (soon, at least)!

Thanxs for the feedback! It's been about a year already that I left Rennes, and I still miss it from time to time, especially when I listen french music. I met some incredible people there, and I learnt to rollerskate, something I also miss.
