Last weekend, I ran away from Paris and found myself in a little town called Douarnenez in the Brittany (or Bretagne in French) region. The reason for my little escape was because I needed to finish writing my 15,000-word thesis that was due on June 20th. Relax, I'm not gonna bore you with the content of my thesis. But yeah, I think Paris is too noisy and full of distractions. Save the dramatic gasp, before you think I am such an ungrateful human being who then doesn't deserve the opportunity to live in the city of lights, Paris is indeed not the ideal place to write a thesis. At least for me it isn't. I'll save this for another post, alright.
Anyways, it was a little tricky to get to Douarnenez as there is no train that goes straight there from Paris. What I did was I took a train from Paris to Quimper, which took about 5 hours, and then took a 30-minute bus ride at the Quimper train station to Douarnenez (Tréboul bus stop). The bus I took was Line 51 and the bus ticket was €1,50 for under 25 year-olds. Find more information about the bus schedule here. It's in French, I couldn't find one in English, but the schedule is pretty self-explanatory.Read More
