Once, when I was in France, me and my friends wanted to go to Ile de Groix. We took tickets to the boat and went to island. But when we got it we noticed that it's not the same as we saw on photos. Then we asked some man if it's the right place. This man didn't know English but understood us and started to laugh. Finally he stoped laughing and explained that we should return and take another boat in another port. So we listened his advice, found that port but didn't go to Groix because tickets were too expensive for 5 minutes' trip. I hope to visit it next time when borders will be opened.

I hope to visit it next time when borders are open.
