The Road to Rouen

June 5, 2015.

Morning spent travelling from Amiens to Rouen via as many backroads as we could find.

It took us a couple of days but we finally figured out how to trick our GPS into taking us along the backroads of France.

I mean, with a name like that, who could resist?Road Signs on the Way to Rouen Part way along we spotted a church with an unusual steeple. We stopped to take a photo of it and man came running up and asked us if we’d like to see inside.15FrRoadtoRouenOldChurchFront3782wHe opened up the door to the old church with an old key.The Caretaker opens up the door to the old church on the way to Rouen in FranceWe were allowed to see the vesperal from the 1800s and still in use.
