Mont Saint-Michel at dusk

This one has been sitting on the archives since 2011… One of the most memorable trips we made was a drive through Normandy, with this famous and magical place as one of the final stops. Seeing it from a distance as we approached during the morning, was surreal. And even …

Amsterdam, Herengracht and Leidsegracht
