         Ever since I stepped foot in France, I've had my camera attached to my hip (more like attached around my neck, but you get the idea). Considering this fact, I decided I should do regular posts of new random pictures I've taken (that were not taken on a longer vacay), entitled "Rennes Roundups". Today's post is a roundup of pictures that I took after my "First Glimpse" post and over La Toussaint break. This break was pretty low key for me, as I only left Rennes for two days to go back to the beach. Our trip this time did not include the college students, but just my host mom's daughter's family. On the Saturday we drove up, we immediately went into town for the once-monthly market in Saint-Briac sur mer. It was on a smaller wavelength compared to the one of the Place Des Lices, however, it was just as good. Everyone was grabbing special ingredients in advanced prep for Christmas dinner. Besides just seeing the delicious warm bread and freshly made chocolate, the best part of our trip to the market was the taste tester bins! The idea of "goûter"-ing (tasting) everything is very prominent in France, and I've been trying to keep with that spirit as well. On Sunday, I woke up semi-early and drove to Saint-Malo with my host mom's son in law, where he gave me a grand tour of Saint-Malo. There is actually a ton of history to the beautiful beach town. I also got to quickly see the large race-boats for the Route Du Rhum, which brought a huge crowd of people. Other than our trip to the beach, I just hung out with my friends (once they returned from their beach vacations), went into town & ate, shopped the boutiques, and then repeated that cycle!! Haha. Hoping you enjoyed these photos! I also filmed a little video of one day when I went into town and it is now up on my Youtube Channel! Check it out below. Watch in HD too! xoxo
