Where I Want to be Today: Mont Saint-Michel

With an official population of only 41, this tidal island in Normandy one kilometre off of the northern coast of France is a magical place formed by the skilled craftsmanship of nature. The Italian architect, William de Volpiano, designed the Romanesque church at the top of the island in the 11th century long after it was first used as a stronghold of Romano-Breton culture during the 7th century. This island, a network of Gothic architecture, tunnels and chapels is one of my dream destinations. It has a story to tell and opens the eyes of thousands of tourists every year...
