If any of you saw that movie, ‘If it’s Tuesday, then it must be Belgium’ then you know what I’m talking about. We took a 2 week bus tour through France. We saw about 17 towns in 12 days. We took my 23 year old granddaughter with us and she seemed to enjoy herself. First time in her life she’s been any further than about 150 miles from her home. So this was a huge experience for her.
My favourite..a vineyard!
We did enjoy it although Ken and I both agreed that we loved Italy far more than France. We will return to Italy but no so France. One of the stops was Normandy. That was very sad to see the rows and rows and rows of crosses. We went to the American cemetery. Would like to have visited the Canadian one but our guide said it was about 80 km away and was very small. Apparently Canada shipped the majority of the bodies of the soldiers home to be buried and there is only about 2000 Canadian graves. I can’t remember how many American graves there were but it just went on and on. In it’s sadness it was also beautiful and peaceful. And we saw Omaha beach where they came ashore and the German bunkers.
Mont St. Michel
That’s a long flight 7 hours to London, then another hour to France. My rump was numb by the time we landed. Most of the hotels we stayed at were average, but a couple of them, oh my. Rustic is certainly an understatement. And what’s with the twin beds in Europe? Almost rolled right out of a couple of them. So tired of living out of a suitcase. Always so nice to come home.
We are discussing a river cruise in Europe. Any of you taken one? If so let me know what you thought of it please.
Our big 5er had the washer/dryer installed and all minor things repaired. It’s winterized and sitting in the storage lot until we bring her home about 3 weeks before Christmas. Then I start the loading for our sojourn south.
Christmas is very quickly creeping up on us. We’re hoping to get away the day after depending on the weather of course.
Until later…take care.
