We are in France. I love it here. We had an uneventful flight which was awesome cause I freak out during any turbulence. I pray and remind myself of statistics anytime things get unpleasant on flights. The drive after the flight was actually quite unsafe cause of the jet lag, but we made it. We were coming to Normandy on our route so we decided to make a trip to the WWII monuments. We started with
Utah beach. The beach itself was quite unremarkable with very low wave activity which is what made it such a miraculous place. The Dday invasion was a lot bigger event than I realized and was quite amazing to learn about and a solemn hollowed location. When you travel with a family the costs add up fast so we enjoy going to the grocery store to get a baguette to eat with ham a cheese. Total cost today = <6 euros with a drink for 5 people. You then find a nice park and have a picnic.
