Mont St. Michel is this fairytale-like abbey perched on an island in northern France, in a region called Normandy. Below the abbey on the island are several alleys, filled with souvenir shops, restaurants and tourists.
The highlight of this visit was exploring the surroundings of Mont St Michel. The area contains beaches, cliffs and fertile fields. I especially enjoyed walking along the causeway as the views of Mont St Michel were at times magical, if not surreal.
