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:


and if you want to see more places of the world, you can try to make a wild guess at Sammy’s Tuesday Teaser today :o)

  1. Poor Mum and the graines 😦 Glad to see you marked as many of the monuments as you could Easy. What a wonderful day out!

  2. What were this green swirly thingies? I tried to get a closer look but still not a clue… btw I notice that you pull a lot… come on, give daddy a break 🙂

    • it’s a geologic model of the river area :o) Sometimes I have the devil inside and turn into a tractor, that’s true :o) It was a challenge for my dad to run downhill behind me on the ole cobble street.

  3. Easy that was really a fun trip you made! I loved seeing the photos of that OLD OLD town…..I see you left a pee-mail on that old wall – that was nice of you to do. I was curious about that statue with the chicken on top of that super HUGE egg – I bet it hurt like mad for that chicken to lay such an egg. OUCH. I hope your Mom’s migraine went away – my Mom gets those and is very cranky when she has one. Thanks for sharing your adventure with us!

    Hugs, Sammy

    • The chicken is a rooster :o) ( the roman symbol of France: Gallus= gauls&Gallus= rooster) Probably the egg was really too big and therefore all rooster’s today refuse to lay eggs? Mom could remove the grains and she is as good like new today… and ready for the teaser :o)

      • I’m glad your Mom is better. Ah ha! So that’s a rooster guy – of course he wouldn’t have laid that great big egg but he might have “encouraged” a chicken to do so! Tee Hee…….I really loved the slide show AND the beautiful song in the background. My Mom says she’d love to visit that city!

        Hugs, Sammy

      • that would be great. a blogger meet and greet in the castle of the Duke. It was strong enough for more than 1000 years, but if it is strong enough for us… not sure :O)

  4. fozziemum says:

    Bravo Easy..indeedy that is the castle !! and you were there…six degrees of separation soon bwahahah 🙂 what a lovely town and such a shame that it is losing people..perhaps one day I may move in…we can eat Bisque and laugh at silly people 🙂 have you thought of starting Easy’s Pee-mail tours..may bring the wonga back to town with tourism,,,i would follow the Pee-mail trail 🙂 I do hope mums Me-grains go.i get them and they are like a horrible cousin who comes to visit! loves Fozziemum xx

  5. What a lovely place and we see you left lots of pee-mail Easy. Trouble because of your country’s stupid taxes we have all your Frenchies over here. Some days I think I am in France. Mostly they don’t have dogs so I don’t need to be bilingual re pee-mails. Have a terrific Tuesday.
    Best wishes Molly

    • I agree Molly, with their crazy ideas no place on this earth is really a home and the peeps have to search forbetter places and at the end we all are unhappy and it ends in chaos. Maybe sometimes dogs will rule this world, then all will be happy (except the squirrels) :o)

  6. Goose says:

    Bawahhahhaha I saw your butt. I also noticed I am missing a couple of things on my back end. hehehe. Thanks for the ride along brother.

  7. cecilia07 says:

    Easy we are so sorry your mom was suffering from me-graines!
    Good thing Dad was up for the challenge of escorting you!
    Madi your bfff

    • She is as good as new today, no graines, just straw as always :o) Dad had the best job, he hasn’t to walk through the ole city he was in tow and could enjoy the beautiful architecture :o)

  8. What a wonderful place to visit – that is one thing we loved about Europe – everything is so old….so much history…although I don’t think I will ever get the image of a beautiful 600 year old building with an ATM stuck in the wall – out of my head 🙂

  9. Wow…a real castle! It looks spooky!

    Hap-Pee ToesDay!

  10. Very beautiful countryside and buildings Easy! Sorry your Mom had the evil headache. Enjoyed the slideshow this morning!

  11. fredrieka says:

  12. catfromhell says:

    Wowwzers Easy! Yous knows there is nothing more than 150 years old here in Calgary? It must bes fun to walks amongst all those old memories…and mes sees yous lefted lots of pee-mail…

    • I did :o) Hope we will visit Josselin again that I can read the answers :o) I bet you would like it, it smells like mice there everywhere…probably they love old buildings :o)

  13. 2browndawgs says:

    What a cool trip. We see you left your mark. 🙂

  14. What a great adventure. I love castles and visited a couple when I was in London a couple of years ago. Amazing! Hope your mom is feeling better. Have a great day.

    • I like castles too, sadly it was closed on monday and I had no chance to meet the ghost of this castle or the Duke :o) Mom feels better, think it was just the changing of the weather :o)

  15. That was a really neat trip! Thanks for sharing Easy! Except for the very interesting pic of your back end *cough cough*

  16. PigLove says:

    My mommy feels your mommy – no not that way silly – snorts. She has migraines too. I hope she gets to feeling soon. I love the castle – I would love to go through it. You think they need a guide pig for tours? XOXO – Bacon

  17. Lee says:

    I’m not sure about the universe either Easy. But while we are still here I enjoyed seeing your country. The old streets with the old houses I find attractive. Guess that means I am an antique.
    Thanks for being a friend
    Sweet William The Scot.

  18. Kyla says:

    No wonder the place is going downhill-all the signs are in French. You can help them, Easy. Get new signs. If the language is close to Welch, sit down on the keyboard. Yes, sit down. It doesn’t matter what combination of letters come up, nobody can pronounce Welsh or spell it either. Your gibberish will bring the town back to life and be a tourist trap.

  19. Two French Bulldogs says:

    That is one cool place. Mom had graines in her head for two days now
    Lily & Edward

  20. Easy I LOVED this post! I had never heard of Josselin til you!!! I also love the quote you shared from Einstein, couldn’t agree more. The video was great, I see you left your “pee mark” in quite a few places! BOL!! Barks and licks and love, Dakota

    • I hope all those lovely places here would get a chance to survive, it’s sad to see all the empty houses around :o) I wrote a contact ad, hope the next weimgirl will read it :o)

  21. Sagira says:

    Wow, always learning so many new things and places from my friends blogs.

  22. Frankie and Ernie says:

    Love the Castle. Loved seeing ALL of this. WE are “RELIEVED” to see that there were PLENTY of place fur you to leave your PeeMails.
    THANKS fur sharing your special day with us.

  23. Will and Eko says:

    You really know how to leave you mark, or marks, wherever you go!

  24. Emmadog says:

    You sure seem to have bad luck when it comes to traveling! I like to leave my mark around too…like on a tree or lamppost!

  25. I wanted to visit with you, E, but the video was not available in my country. WTH? Now I am having a me-grain!

    Love and licks,

    Nacho, Noah, Buddy & Basil

  30. Howdy Easy, sorry about your mum’s megraine. Our sissy gets them too. The castle and town looks sooo amazing. We loved your photos, butt the last one was a surprise hehe. See ya mate. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  31. The OP Pack says:

    Hope Mom’s me-graine is much better now. Our human sister has a terrible time with those too.

    Mom was a French major in college and loved studing about all the castles in France. She still dreams of getting there one day to visit a few of them.

    Woos – Phantom, Ciara, and Lightning

  32. Thanks for the pawsome tour Easy! Hope your mom is feeling much better
    Mr Bailey, Hazel & Greta

  34. kolytyi says:

    What a lovely video you have made with your paws!
    Oh, Easy, you are a Grand Dogtore! What a brilliant diagnosis of your mom’s me-graine! Do you think I have sauerkraut juice in my head? If it is boiling, my head wants to blow up. And if it becomes too sour, it percolates to my stomach and tummy and I have cramps.

  35. Misaki says:

    Hope your mummy is feeling better. But looks like you had a great time, what a lovely place to visit

  36. DailyMusings says:
