Why we love Normandy - What was once a humble region for fishing and apple growing somehow became the staging ground for the defeat of Hitler. I was overwhelmed by being right on the coast where the tide of World War II changed forever. My touring day started with a little hail (in April) and finished with a bright blue sky and wild winds. An amazing day. Read my full article about our Normandy tour. - Laura
