2017 But's Adventure travel blog

Very popular Paella at the markets Bayeux

1943 Harley Davidson, 90,000 produced for the war effort, used for communication...

We saw lots of these

The American Cemetery grounds & Memorial were immaculate

 


Friday, Saturday

We got to Amsterdam Airport Schiphol without any dramas. The flight to Paris was good on Transavia, except as normal delays before taking off. We had plenty of time to transfer to Saint Lazaire station then onto Bayeux getting there about 5:30pm.

The Premier Class hotel where we are I s basic but comfortable, much quieter than Utrecht and weather now cooler about 22-24C.

Saturday

We tried to book a rental car, but unfortunately no luck, so have been using the public transport, bus system which has worked out fine. After an initial check with the Tourist office & markets which were very good for a small town, we headed out to Omaha Beach, Normandy Museum & American War Cemetery.

The museum had heaps of stuff, and was very well done, though very American biased understandingly. The cemetery was sobering, with 1000's of white marble crosses in perfect rows.
