SPOTTED: The real Loch Ness monster was spotted recently and look how close this Le Boat customer is to it!

Nessie, the Loch Ness monster, has been spotted for the second time in five days, after a tourist from North Wales saw a strange creature swimming through the Scottish lake.

Le Boat in Agen, Aquitaine.

A journalist for The Sunday Times recently visited Aquitaine and here is a snippet of what he had to say about his trip:

"Thousands of plane trees line the canal and provide shade all year round, so even in the heat of summer, it is a pleasant trip. I was pleased to discover that people will smile and nod at you when you wave at them frantically from the top deck, looking for local validation."

If you have not already visited Aquitaine, it is one to tick of the bucket list! 🇨🇵️🍇🌿
