Honfleur is one of those places that you would have passed by if not for a recommedation by a friend and what ajoy it turned out to be. The town itself is lined with houses from as far back as the 15/16th century with wooden houses that are so old that the wooden beams are cracked and bent. The area where the old clock is located is also filled with stories of old, something which I have not experieneced in my travel elsewhere round the globe. Had lunch by the river which is lined with many restuarants and guess what is served: seafood. Nearly every table is taken and we had to stand around waiting for someone to leave in order to have space for ourselves. Nearly everyone was having seafood especially mussels so we join the crowd and ordered mussels and a seafood platter. It was a mistake as the seafood platter itself was enough for 4 when there is only the 2 of us. we struggled to finish what was served but it was not too bad as the food was fresh and good especially the mussels. with the sun shining on your back and customers squeezing back to back, with little room to move in between tales, it was a great experience in this quaint fishing village which we would have missed if not for a recommedation by this French friend of ours.
