    ... call Arromanches les Bains. There seemed to be a lot going on here but the reason we had come was to see the Arromanches 360 degrees theatre recommended by the Dutch guy in the campground where we stayed. Funnily enough we drove right into the parking area where the theatre was which was convenient. The show was all about the allied forces storming the Normandy coast to push the Germans back and eventually ...

    ... to go up in a plane again while traveling domestically. Going by train is a much more enjoyable experience especially when I'm a person that doesn't like he whole metal tube in the air thing. This journey was shorter than most at only 1.5 hours so we pulled into the station before nine and Andrew was there to luck us up in his rented Citroen.

    ... a lot of depth to the site.

    We then headed out into the cemetery to look over the bluff onto Omaha beach. There are 9,387 white-marble crosses and Stars of David in memory of Americans who gave their life to free Europe on the beaches below. There's not much that can describe that experience.

    After that, we headed onward to the Pointe du Hoc Ranger Monument. Pointe du Hoc is a point in the cliffs between Omaha beach and Utah beach. 225 Rangers were given ...
