well, my holiday is coming up at the end of the month - and thus far the plan is to go to (old) Orléans (the original) for a weekend, and then head over to Montvilliers to visit C - (with whom i passed toussaint). we will head to Le Havre - which isn't a very beautiful French city from what i understand, but should be interesting all the same...and we are planning to head to Bayeux to see the very famous tapestry.
i just had dinner today with some friends in Vivières - a huge village of 384 people. (it's in the middle of NOWHERE). they had some other friends in from near Rouen, and they invited me to spend a couple of days chez eux (at their place...) so hopefully i'll be able to incorporate that into my schedule.
