War vor atao

I bought a ticket to Quimper back in October, but couldn’t find the time to make the five-hour round-trip until this past Friday.  Waking up to catch the train for six fifty was a bit tough, though even tougher was waking up to get on the train that left at six fifteen…so difficult that I didn’t even bother, and instead slept straight through my alarm.  But a call from my kind but maybe a bit annoyed friend who was waiting at the train station woke me up and I was with boundless energy and effortless speed all the way à la gare SNCF de Nantes…that is, until I got seated on the train, at which point, I promptly fell asleep.

Quimper was wonderful, and now, having caught up on my sleep, I am happy for the extra hours the early train gave me to spend in town.  A bit rainy, but there was lots of nice time to spend in cafés with espresso and chocolat chaud and muffins (aussi au chocolat, oui oui oui).

    1. Actually, with the exception of one short trip to Angers, I’ve always traveled with my friend Matt (“kind but maybe a bit annoyed”). But that’ll change as he’s heading back to Seattle in less than a week!

      And I never really mention him in posts because I know just how weirded out he’d be by it.
