Today it's about pirats, Saint Malo and adventures.
Who never dreamt to be like a boat that would break her moorings and sail to the seas just using winds and tides, without captain or crew?
When I look at boat, I'm starting to dream about adventures, freedom and rhum :))
Tomorrow, we leave for Kenya, and more specificaly, Lake Nakuru, so I wont post picture until next wednesday. Yes it's a short trip, but after that there will be an other one ;), and an other one...
By the way, this pict was taken in Saint Malo which is a walled port city in Brittany in northwestern France on the English Channel. Saint-Malo during the Middle Ages was a fortified island at the mouth of the Rance River, controlling not only the estuary but the open sea beyond. From 1490–1493, Saint-Malo declared itself to be an independent republic, taking the motto "not French, not Breton, but Malouins".
But most interesting, Saint Malo became notorious as the home of the corsairs, French privateers and sometimes pirates. The corsairs of Saint-Malo not only forced English ships passing up the Channel to pay tribute, but also brought wealth from further afield.
If you have a chance to visit France, please go to Saint Malo, you won't be disappointed, and it's close to Mont Saint Michel also!
If you can't visit France, well, at least, you can watch our video clip: http://menilmonde.com/24h-a-saint-malo-09/
