La France!

Me and Catch have just came off our first Holiday together! Catch is my girlfriend by the way. We had a  fantastic adventure in Brest, France! We thought we would start off by taking an adventure around the historic side of Brest and view one of the main historical attractions in Brest which is the Tanguy Tower, it is one the of the oldest remaining monuments in France. It was bombed previously during World War 2 in the 14th Century and was used as a lookout passage back then. I still found it very interesting to see such a historic building but Catch didn't enjoy it that much!

After this Catch wanted to visit The Museum of Fine arts, which was destroyed in 1941 by the World War 2 bombings, but rebuilt in 1964. It brought out the creative side in us both. There were some fascinating paintings that we really enjoyed looking at. I might even look into painting some myself when I find the time!

The main highlight of our trip was Oceanopolis, which is a large aquarium containing thousands of underwater creatures. It was fantastic, We saw penguins, sharks, turtles, any thing you name it. I got the opportunity to even feed a penguin, but it tried to eat me instead! Catch just laughed at me. As well as this we saw a fish that was identical to Finding Nemo!We would both  love to take a visit back there and see all the underwater creatures again!

Where will we be visiting next time?
