I've been well out of communication, travelling. Yesterday we visited the Pegasus bridge and museum in Caen, captured by airborne troops on D-day. Today we're visiting the Bayeux tapestry museum. We're actually staying 2 nights in the same hotel! Lots to see in this area.

Nice! I'm envious.....

Going to the cemetery sat Colleville sur Mer?

Byrdsfan Level 8 July 9, 2018

Did most of the cemeteries 5 years ago. Leaving tomorrow morning for Dieppe, but will return on another jaunt to visit Mont st Michel, Falaises, etc, probably next year.
There's a lot to see in this area.

My family comes from Guernsey in the Channel Islands. If you've not been, you should include on your next trip....

@Byrdsfan my money has lived in the Channel Islands since 1974

Well done, a much shorter flight for you than the Cayman Islands. I only have cousins there, and grandparents' graves.....


Love that part of the world

That sounds fabulous!


I hope you visit Mont St. Michel, it is definitely a must see !

I may leave that for another year.

Its blooming awful, really commercialised and very expensive.

@Petter Always a good reason to go back to that part of France. You need to leave a whole morning or afternoon to see it properly. Enjoy the rest of your trip.

@Amisja I think I enjoyed the history and the sheer impact it had when approaching it. Yes like a lot of tourist attractions this can be a problem, unfortunately.


Holiday! Glad to hear you are having fun.

Photos please!

I've even purchased a brand new digital camera for the visits.
21mm ultra wide angle and special low light sensitivity, so I can take photos without using the flash. It also zooms to 600mm telephoto!
Damned good excuse to buy myself a new toy smile001.gif


I went to the Normandy beaches..and sneaked down a whole in a fenced off area in the high dunes...I used my phone torch to see where I was was very interesting being in a German bunker...especially when you are not supposed to be there..?

We have a bit of bunker in my house. Its interesting stuff. The museum of peace is breath taking. There is a replica of a gas chamber there and even the thought of it is chilling.
