Ireland, England, Normandy Review

A travel blog entry by abryan124

... but definitely fills you up! Oh, Normandy, my heart will always be there. Before the trip, I have to admit I was a little worried about what I would do for 2 weeks in Normandy. Even during the trip, I was worried especially on Sundays and Mondays since EVERYTHING shuts down. Granted, there are a few cafés and restaurants but they all have early closing times.

Bryan and nick screamed like little girls in the back seat as I hunched over and tried to focus on the road. It was really funny and embarrassing because we had all the windows down. Definitely did not give the good USA a good reputation there! Finally, we made it to carentan. However, since it is a "big" city, ...

... missing. The cemetry is actually American land - gifted by the French in appreciation. It is beautifully kept and there were a couple of low fly overs by air force transporters when we were there which added to the atmosphere.

Pointe du hoc was a strategic place as it was an observation point between two beaches. Its a steep cliff and it must have felt almost futile climbing up and getting mown down. There were only about 15 Germans defending the top, but ...
