Last week Fozziemum wrote about a french chef who lives in Oz and between Bisque de Homard, Cidre and 1000 years old castles, I’ve got the idea to visit one. A 1000 years old castle, not the chef… or the cidre..
We started on moanday in the morning, but sadly my mom had a me-graine. That means instead of the common straw she has the whole grains in her head, therefore it is called me-graine(s). That hurts, of course and if you shake her, the grains clatter around in her head. Therefore she wasn’t able to run and to jump with me because of the rattling noise…
So I jumped and ran with my dad through: JOSSELIN (breton: JOSILIN)
It’s a medieval city and there you really feel the spirit of knights and damsels, tournaments and chivalry. On the river Aust they have an ole castle, built by Guéthénoc, vicomté of Porhoët in 1008 and till today it is the crib of Josselin Charles Louis Jean Marie de Rohan-Chabot, 14th Duke of Rohan. Great name huh? But he sadly wasn’t at home, so we had to buzz off without Bisque de Homard and Cidre…btw: do you mean that castle on a river, Bev?
Josselin is a place what was very popular at british expats and so they have british book stores there, tea rooms and the stores are well-equipped with HP-Sauce, Fish&Chips, Cadbury and other needful things. Sadly because of new useless laws, made by EU and the greed of the french government, many expats went back to UK and since they were gone it goes downhill with many places like that ole city, thanks, Mr. EU…. Like Mr. Einstein said: “Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I’m not sure about the the universe.” Butt back to my trip. We took some photos and I added a song by a breton singer named Nolwen Leroy. She sings in breton, what’s much better to learn than french, because Brezhoneg is the language of british expats and refugees and very close to welsh and cornish language. It only takes no advantage to you, because today it’s no longer common to speak breton. Butt enough of the gab, I hope you have time to walk with me through Josselin, that would be cool:
