... hold to your ear like a mobile and a narrator explains each scene, backed by music as you walk along the frame. The English version is narrated by a terribly plummy chap; he was ace! Fascinating hearing all of the explanations and the intricacies of the hidden messages. Crazy to think how much time and effort went into this storyboard and still blown away to have seen it... Really made my trip. We attempted a lunch out after the museum ...

We spend the day in Bayeux. first going to a market then visiting the Bayeux Tapestry.
In the afternoon we carry out a few language activities including buying cakes or ice creams!

After the drama of yesterday's D day landing beaches, museum and cemetery (the cemetery becomes all the more moving when you work out the ages of the dead) today returned to a much older battle.
The outcome was less positive ...

The Tapestry is absolutely amazing!

Henry Bewley served with the Border Regiment in WWI and was killed in the first battle of Ypres in October of 1915. Our second stop was in the city of Rouen to see the ...

... the kids were free, I paid for just my ticket, and we went to get our audio guide. The guide was fabulous as the narrator explained each panel of the cloth. For those of you who don't know of it (you didn't have a geeky mom who forced you to learn about it or forced you to go see it), it is a cloth that is 70 metres long and 50 centimetres high, and it weighs 350 kilograms. Hardly a tea towel. It is presented in a darkened room that ...
