Hi everyone! This topic went in so many different ways so I won't be original and stay in the first one. I was born in Limoges, HUGE capital of Limousin (ok it doesn't exist anymore), famous all around the world for its delicate porcelain and his basketball team (more in Europe for the second but it's already good!). I hope with that I gave you the envy to visit it, it's only one hour and a half from here and don't worry in one day you will have time to see everything (maybe even the creepy butcher house, thanks Yara for the suggestion Wink )  ! Very Happy

Well that topic has been pretty active ! As far as I'm concerned I lived pretty much all my life in Charente, growing up around Angoulême and moving out like 11 times so far. Not much to say though cause it was pretty much all the same during 23 years so we'll see what next but I'm not sure I'll live around very long.

Hi everyone! I grew up in Rennes (in Brittany) and I made my studies there (before I arrived in Cognac, then Angoulême…). This is a nice student city, very dynamic, with lots of entertainment and things to see like the park of Thabor, the historic center, the "Champs libres"...
There is also the « rue de la soif » with many pubs, famous until China, where a lot of students meet on thursday evenings and weekends. drunken

Hi everyone !
I come from Rennes too ! After Alexandre's post you will think all britain pepole are alcoholic ... haha.

Now about my origin, I lived in Rennes until my hight school. After that I moved to La Rochelle for do my studies. It was an amazing city, little but so attractive. Just front of sea you can enjoyed drinks with your friend or relax you by the walk on the beach. It was so nice and very different of Angoulême unfortunately ... I advice you to visit this city, it's just near Angoulême (less than 2 hours) and you can feel in holidays druing one week-end. If you want any recommendations, I can help you Wink
Let's enjoy the beautiful view from the port when you can see the famous symbol of LR : "Les deux tours de La Rochelle"


For strong feeling amator, each year there is Redbull event : "the Redbull cliff diving". Amazing event where divers, dive from one of two tower in 27 meters of height. It's very impressive. Looks : http://www.redbullcliffdiving.com/fr_FR

You didn't talk about the "crêpes" or "Galettes de Sarazin" and Cider Wink. This is the only one identity of the "French Britain".
Is there speciality, specific to Rennes?

There is not, in my mind, speciality specific to Rennes. There is the sausage patty (after football games) but this is not only in Rennes.

You forgot to put the famous music of sausage patty Alexandre ... Stupid song but so famous in Rennes. Frequently people sing that during football game or sport event in Ile-et-Vilaine for motivate the public.
