Mont-Saint-Michel in Black and White

Visitors — including a dog companion — walk on the sand flats surrounding Mont-Saint-Michel.
Centuries-old ironwork on a wooden door.
Overlook on the sand flats.
The delicate architecture of the cloister.
The abbey’s spire, framed by foliage.

Some of her most memorable experiences have been sharing a bottle of champagne with distant French cousins in Lorraine, learning how to milk goats in a sleepy Bulgarian village, and ringing in the Vietnamese New Year with a Hanoi family. She welcomes any opportunity to practice French and German, and she loves delving into a place’s history and artisanal food scene. A former education administrator and training specialist, Tricia has a bachelor’s degree in elementary education and a master’s degree in international relations. She and her husband, Shawn, married in the ruins of a snowy German castle. They’ve been known to escape winter by basing themselves in coastal Croatia or Southeast Asia. Her writing has appeared in Fodor’s Travel, Frommer’s, and International Living.
