Coming up on Mont Saint Michel it is an awe inspiring view. From afar it looks like the castle that was promised in the land far far away. While there are quite a few steps in the journey, the reward of an old medieval town is well worth it. Past the drawbridge the street is lined with shops. We made our way all the way to the Abbey located at the top which presented beautiful panoramic views on the outside and marvelous architecture inside. For example the huge walk-in fireplaces were awesome. We can only imagine the feasts that occurred there long ago. We absolutely loved Mont Saint Michel adding to our admiration for France.
