Caen and the museums of Normandy!

Chateau de Caen

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".

Musée de Normandie

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.

Ik was hier mijn lekerding.. heheh.. ik kent niet als het is goed of niet...

Anyway, you surely have great time in there. I do find it strange why those flowers still have colors... most here are lifeless and colorless already...:(
