Teaser: Mont Saint-Michel


This is Mont Saint-Michel, a medieval fortress-abbey built on a rocky islet off the coast of Normandy, France. [Click on pictures to enlarge.] And this--the video below--is the breathtaking view of the surrounding flatlands in wintry low tide, taken from a terrace near the top of the abbey. The tiny tube-like objects you see way down below? Those are cars and tour buses. Mont Saint-Michel is four-and-a-half hours away by bus from Paris, or nine hours of travel back and forth. But with a reward as heart-stopping as this sight, who but the most philistine would care to fret?
