A Day with Claude Monet

A nice day trip to break away from the bustling city life of Paris is to go to Giverny in the morning before heading to Rouen, a city in Normandy, in the afternoon. This will appeal even more to fans of impressionism, since Giverny was the home of Claude Monet and Rouen is home to the cathedral that inspired one of Monet's most famous series of paintings. My sister and I got up bright and early to catch the morning train to Vernon, which is about 45 minutes away from Paris by train. From Vernon, one would take a bus to Giverny, which takes about another 15 minutes. The morning train allows you to get there as the garden opens and there aren't as many people, although my sister and I spent so much time taking pictures everywhere that soon the gardens filled with people. Giverny has always been one of my favorite places in France - walking through Monet's garden almost feels like stepping into one of his paintings, surrounded by willows, serene water, and of course his well-known waterlilies. Nearly a hundred pictures later, we took off for Rouen - to snap more pictures of course.

My favorite street in Rouen is to stroll down Rue du Gros Horloge, a cobblestone street lined with shops leading up to Cathedral de Notre-Dame, the subject of Monet's series of paintings where he studied the effects of light on the cathedral. (See an example below.) I tried to take a picture that resembled Monet's paintings but I thought he painted them from a different angle so it didn't quite turn out as I planned but you can still see it...

I have tons of photos from Giverny as well! Have not been to Rouen (the place I cannot pronounce) but it looks amazing too!
