Season 2, Episode 6
Samantha Brown takes us to an area of France that may challenge your notions of this country. It's a region, which even though is in France does not consider itself of France. It's the region of Brittany along France's northwestern tip. There's a lot of ground to cover so Samantha begins in the town of Quimper at the Faience Pottery factory - this hand-made pottery is a must buy. Her next stop the Breton village of Locronan, once famous for sail making; here she'll pop into a pub to learn a bit of the Breton language and the proper stages of drunkenness. Samantha makes it to the port of Le Guilvenic just in time to see the daily parade; not of floats but colorful fishing boats unloading their catch of the day. And the most sought after oysters in the world are farm-raised in Benodet, Samantha fills up on the Breton oyster. A trip through Brittany gives the traveler a unique experience - it's not just its culture or language that's unusual, it's the mood and atmosphere you'll find here. Samantha's journey through this unique region of France has her asking the question; Is Brittany at the edge of a country or does it begin one?
