In pictures: a weekend in Angers, France


On the 19th August we took a Railbookers weekend city break in Angers, France, the historical capital of Anjou and gateway to the Châteaux-lined Loire Valley. It’s a hugely likeable, laid back place with a slightly quirky outlook and heaps of beautiful architecture to drool over. After a hassle-free train journey, our days were spent wandering around the cobbled medieval streets exploring important heritage sites and gorgeous art galleries and during the evenings we soaked up the joie de vivre while making the most of the thriving café culture. From the city’s elegant main square to hidden little back streets here’s our Railbookers Angers’ weekend in pictures…

Born in England, with a few family roots from Bavaria, and a heart in Scandinavia I've always been a bit of a restless soul. My first true adventure began as a six month voyage around South East Asia as a fresh faced backpacker and ever since I've lived a semi nomadic existence, clocking up over 40 countries on trips and living in Dublin, South East Asia and Australia. I'm a lover of US Road Trips, deserted beaches bathed in warm glow of a sunset, Cuban mojitos, easy-on-the-eye travel destinations far away from the tourist crowds and all things Scandinavian - from cloudberry liquors to Scandi Noirs. When not wandering the world, you'll find me walking my rescue dog in leafy South West London, strolling around the Brighton Laines on random day trips, hunting for photogenic landscapes or daydreaming about returning to my all time favourite places in the world; Havana, Copenhagen, Italy, Thailand and the frozen landscapes of a wintry Iceland.
