Spending a few days camping in bretagne with dad. The first few minutes on the campground were interesting... he has forgotten to pack the metalic bars forming the structure of the tent
Good thing the place isn't pack so we are now renting something kind of like a mobile home: 2 bedroom and a wooden deck with a 4 burners stove, microwave, coffeemaker, sink and a garden table and chairs.

Whenever I would forget something important my mam would tell me: "You'd forget your head if it wasn't screwed on."
At least you managed to sort out alternative accommodation.
Now let's just hope that Brittany's weather is good for your few days there. Hope you have a good time, anyway!
Being a Celtic province, it's a place I must go to sometime. I believe they have their own language, which is very similar to the Welsh language. I remember years ago a Welsh speaking friend of mine went on motorbike holiday to France and had great difficulty making himself understood, because hardly anyone spoke English and he spoke zero French. But when he got to Brittany he suddenly found he could understand the locals, because, as he said: "They were speaking a language that was almost Welsh!" He honestly didn't know that they had their own Celtic language.
Interestingly, in Irish Gaelic the name for Brittany is An Bhriotáin (The Britain) and the name for Wales is An Bhreatain Bheag (The Little Britain). Britain in this case refers (historically) to the race known as the Britons, and not to the modern day British (Anglo-Saxons).
