Trip Report going from paris to mont st michel

During my last trip to paris I incorporated a side trip to the mont. it wasn't very hard. I got to experience the TGV again--going from paris to rennes. there are a number a day. I took one that left at about 9AM (gare montparnasse, 3d level) and got into rennes a little after 11.

i bought the TGV ticket on the net at voyages.sncf.com
my ticket was about 77 euros return--they had cheaper tickets but they were sold out.
i took the internet confirmation number to the ticket office and they printed out my tickets.

there was some excitement on the day of the return-a national civil servant strike. i made it back ok.

buses to the mont meet some of the TGVs. (lescourriersbretons.fr) the bus cost 9 euros and took a little over one hour to get to the mont.

one problem with not having a car is that, if you stay the night, rooms on the mont are expensive. cheaper rooms (and restaurants) are available at the end of the causeway--maybe a mile plus away.

after seeing all the spectacular churches in france, i found the mont a bit of a disapointment. it is, of course, an architectural/construction miracle. but it is a fairly bland church as a church.

there were vespers late in the day in the abbey--it sounded interesting, but i was tired and went back to my room at the end of the causeway.
