A French island icon and more images from around the world


Heaven’s above

The tidal island of Mont Saint-Michel has been fortifed since the 8th century and was used as a prison during the Ancien Régime

At the end of last year, I spent one month travelling in France. I had been in the country before on shorter trips, but I wanted to really dive into French culture and see all the sites that I had missed previously. One morning, I woke up before sunrise and hopped on a bus from Paris to Normandy to see Mont Saint-Michel, an abbey and monastery that sits atop an island commune. There is a magical point just before you reach the fnal destination, when Mont Saint-Michel comes into view, and it takes your breath away. I was in awe, and snapped this photo the second I stepped off the bus.
