Today, Josh and I took a 3 hour journey, by train and bus, to visit Normandy.
Obviously today was a bit more sombre than previous days of our Paris holiday. We both really wanted to see Normandy, and it was definitely worth the long trip.
We expected to see Canadian memorials at Juno beach, but what really caught us off guard was driving by just regular city parks, and seeing Canadian flags flying ...
... the trip was not buying transferable tickets. I actually almost didn't even by train tickets for this first leg, but they were cheap 15 euros each.

The directions to the Bayeux Tapestry fizzled out after a bit but we followed our noses and eventually arrived at the entrance! It was our lucky day because there was a promotion on and the fee was €7.50 instead of €9.50, which swayed our decision to go in because Neil and I had seen it years ago. We weren't disappointed!
