In the summer of 2006 I went with 3 friends to Normandy, France to see the places where D-DAY started. If you are interested in history you have to visit Normandy. We went to Omaha beach, we saw a lot of museums and went to St Mere Eglise. Now it looks so peaceful but if you think back in time, guys of our age where fighting for our freedom. Especially when you visit the American War Cemetery you can see how many people lost there live in the Second World War. One of the highlights was for me Point du Hoc, go there with sunset. If you ever planning to go to France, VISIT Normandy
