The chateau of Caen casts 4 different museums between its majestic walls. The latest exposition was showing the history of its region, Normandy, and tourism:"Destination Normandie Deux siècles de tourisme en Normandie, XIXe – XXe siècles".
Plenty of colourful and joyful old posters, yellow-paged-brochures and black and white postcards were on display. One could have a good laugh when seeing the bathsuit fashion from some 100 years ago:-) And still realise why people love(d) toursim. Because its a great way to escape the city, the every-day-life and the known.
The Normandy-coast /La "côte normande" was just 2,5 hours away from Paris, now, 200 years after, only 1,5 hours by train.
