Salut !

So since my school is now in full-speed and I have spent all my weekends travelling and not studying, I will keep this post short text-wise and instead shower you with pictures that, in my opinion, could all very well be postcards because OMG it was amazingly beautiful!

Étretat is a small village with only about 1300 residents in the North-West of France, Normandy, located in between the most amazing natural cliffs. There are no barriers on the cliffs, you can wander around where ever you want to and whenever you want to. The water was  turquoise, green and dark blue. The cliffs were covered with moss, grass and flowers. It was quiet. There were hardly any people on the cliffs during the sunset. All you could hear was the sound of the wind and water throwing itself against the cliffs. I thought it was simply wonderful. Even better than the Cliffs of Moher. And honestly, the pictures don’t do it justice. I never thought Normandy could be so beautiful. No wonder that one of my favourite artists, Claude Monet, felt so inspired that he painted multiple pieces in the area.
