Series travel warning: Gauls, Wake up

Even if the borders to France are now open again: not to Go to Poitiers! Let it out, around an arc of the drum, passing showers on the way to the Atlantic ocean, with a good Conscience, just straight to it. It's not worth it. There is nothing to see except an old, dark Cathedral, a couple of unhewn blocks of stone from the prehistoric era, and a plaque in memory of a battle in the 8. Century, is said to have beaten back, at the time of Charles Martel, the Muslims. Meanwhile, the importance of the battle of historians is in doubt. That evening the country was saved, to believe only a couple of Identitarian, the scrabbling on the roof of the local mosque with placards on which is written: "Gauls are awake, You are here home".

One of those here temporarily at home, is Michel Foucault. The famous philosopher and sociologist, was born here and went during the Second world war in Poitiers to the school, then fled but soon to Paris and never returned again. If you spike French the word Poitiers, then you are forgiven, mostly the mouth and easily say enerviert: Ah oui, le Futuroscope. At least once in his life, every French student and his class has been forced to visit in the sad leisure Park in front of the gates of Poitiers, where the old and the new "technologies of the future" will be presented. Among the main attractions of the "Futuro scopes" IMAX-cinemas, water games and a 48-metre-high observation tower – well, does that not sound like a fun afternoon?

Poitiers is situated in the middle of France, but his heart is not beating here. The Best thing you can say about Poitiers, is that it is located with the train just two hours from Paris. And that the Internet connections are usually stable. That Poitiers has more students per inhabitant than any other French University city is right. However, most of them leave the province of the nest at the weekend to wash with their parents in the surrounding villages of Laundry, and can cook for. The sound of rickety rolling suitcases roars to the poor Erasmus students, had to spend a half a year, his life long in the ears. All in All, therefore, the opposite of Savoir-vivre and lavender-tale coziness. Of course: here you can open a bottle of red wine and a piece of cheese on the Clain place – the river is here, really, "Clain", but to be honest, it's not worth It. You prefer to stay in Paris. Or in Tours. And then drive directly to La Rochelle. Or to Bordeaux. In any case: do not Drive to Poitiers!
