Last year we celebrated our 40th anniversary with a trip to Paris. We also inserted a trip to visit the beaches of Normandy. I mean … how could we not? Overlord Tours, http://www.overlordtour.com
, is the company that we used to book our 8-hour “Band of Brothers” Tour. Our tour guide picked us up at our hotel in Bayeux. Oliver was amazing in his knowledge of World War II history, storytelling, reverence … and dude … he had some amazing flip charts. If you are a fan of “Band of Brothers” this is the tour for you!!! We visited farm houses, a field full of cows where Dick Winters engaged the Germans and took out several cannon batteries, several small towns and churches where important things happened, a WWII museum, the American Cemetery, Pointe du Hoc and walked the beaches of Omaha and Utah where the American soldiers landed today … just 69 years ago.
