Mont St Michel in France

The Magnificent Mont St Michel, originally callled Mont Tombe, has played an important role in history for almost 1500 years. It was an early stronghold of Rome until AD 460. Mont St Michel was ransacked by the Franks around the year 700.

In the year 933 William I annexed the region including Mont St Michel for Normandy and remained under Norman control during their conquest of England in 1066.

As reformation fervor waned the abbey lost it's significance and the Abbey of Mont St Michel was turned into a prison for several decades, closing in 1863.

Mont St Michel is now a Unesco World Heritage site, recognized for it's unique role in geographical as well as human history.

Such a pity the photo isn't available. My friends are organizing quest-tours in major cities as an opportunity to learn more about a city's (and country's) history in a fun and interactive way. Currently they cover 10 cities in USA and gained quite a positive rating on AssignmentExpert.com. Their plans include expanding to Europe. Hopefully one day they will make a tour over St Michel too.

Hello. Recently I needed to do my homework about interesting places in France.
In a number of not only French, but also world sights, Mont-Saint-Michel occupies a special place. This place is unique. In the world there simply are no rivals a lonely mountain in the middle of a perfectly flat plain; a mountain crowned with a stern monastery and surrounded by impregnable walls; mountain, whose slopes sheltered a whole medieval city with tiny winding streets; the mountain, which the highest tides in Europe twice a day turn into an inaccessible island, and the surrounding plain - into a raging ocean. The path to it is not easy, but from year to year millions of people rush here - to feel for a few hours involvement in a true miracle.
UNESCO has included Mont-Saint-Michel in the World Heritage List, guidebooks proudly refer to it as the "eighth wonder of the world", and the French themselves call the favorite attraction simply the Mountain.

Editor: Republican attorney and businessman Spencer Swalm served in the Colorado General Assembly (as his late father also did), representing House District 37 in Centennial from 2007 to 2015, departing under term limits on January 7. We asked him to sum up the lessons learned from those eight years, all but two of them under a Democratic Speaker, and all of them opposite a Democratic Senate and Governor. Swalm drew up this perceptive summary, concluding with a whimsical epilogue on how the “homework assignment” landed on his desk.

1. Culture is the dog that wags the tail of politics.

If you doubt it, ask yourself what really sets the agenda in this country: the legislature– including Congress? Or Hollywood? Of course, you’re free to see it differently. But, in my opinion, you’re kidding yourself if you answered “the legislature”. And, what is worse, if you think the church has much impact on a culture that is badly adrift, perhaps you’ve been smoking too much of that recreational marijuana that voters in “conservative” Colorado approved by a healthy margin.

The easiest and cheapest - hitchhiking. What could be simpler: go out on the road and vote. Professional hitchhikers travel around the world. But hitchhiking has four big drawbacks:

- It is convenient to travel alone or together, the three of them are already a big problem.
- Security It is unlikely that you will get a maniac, but still ...
- Comfort. Sleep will have either in the car or on the sidelines.
- And most importantly - time. Hitchhiking - not for the hurried.
For example, a trip to the Black Sea from Kaluga will take two or three days.

Hitchhiking is a great travel option for students and the unemployed. In summer, the Don track is full of young couples with backpacks and bearded experienced guys.
