Day 3: Rouen – Medieval Discoveries With U by Uniworld


There was some confusion this morning over the time to meet for the kayaking excursion along the Eure River. We were due to meet at 8:15 to head ashore, but the ship was delayed and the meeting time was changed to 9:45. Sadly without much notice, the meeting time was changed to 9:20. I missed the excursion, but in a way it was a blessing. Hearing other people’s stories when they returned later that afternoon, they talked about how exhausting it was, with 2 miles of rapids, and people falling in the water. I had a relaxing afternoon on deck as we continued to sail to Rouen where we would now arrive at 3pm.
