    Coast to Coast mit Speedferry

    August 22, 2019 in France ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    Wir haben mit 40kn den Ärmelkanal überquert und sind wieder zurück in Frankreich.
    Bruno musste 3 Stunden im VW Bus im Autodeck der Schnellfähre bleiben. Das hat er gut überstanden und badet jetzt an den sonnigen Sandstränden der Normandie.

    We crossed the English Channel with 40kn and are back in France.
    Bruno had to stay 3 hours in the VW bus in the car deck of the fast ferry. He survived that well and is now bathing on the sunny sandy beaches of Normandy.

    Mercredi, 10 juillet 2019
    En moins d'une heure nous rejoignons Cherbourg. Cette ville offre aux campingcaristes de nombreuses places de stationnement. Nous nous posons devant le musée Cité de la Mer et pouvons donc en qq minutes rejoindre le centre-ville et la très vielle église de la Trinité. La Brasserie du Commerce nous régale avec un menu “poisson".Read more

    Normandy

    April 25, 2017 in France ⋅ ⛅ 8 °C

    I woke up early and went to the upper deck to take photographs of the sail-in to Cherbourg, France. The temperature was rather cold today about 42°. We met our guide Frederica for the trip down to Bayeaux to visit the cathedral and also to see the Bayeaux tapestry. The cathedral was difficult to photograph on our first walk-through. However, I was able to come back later when fewer people obstructed the view. The way the museum displays the tapestry is brilliant. The use of portable headsets explaining the panels of the tapestry is very convenient. As one walks past, portable headsets explain each panel. For lunch Glenda and I grabbed a savory crepe, called a "galeta" from a little crepe shop. We got it to go and paid only €4. Another, fancier restaurant was charging about €19 for the same food. We walked through the town, and Glenda bought a bit a candy from a little shop. We had passed the little village of Ste. Mere Eglise on the way to Bayeaux. I had attempted to catch a photo of the mannequin dressed as a paratrooper hanging from the steeple. This display has been maintained by the church since John Steele hung by his parachute there during the D-Day invasion in 1944. Glenda asked whether it might be possible to slow down as we passed. Our guide Frederica and our driver Manuela said they could drive through the town and give us a brief photo stop. I got great photos of the outside of the church and of the paratrooper display. We returned to our ship at 4 pm and went for dinner at the Chef's Table at 6 pm. The culinary theme for tonight is "Salty and Sweet," and the cooks outdid themselves in preparing a creative masterpiece of a menu. Later tonight we will see a show featuring some musical hits from Broadway. All in all, I think this may be one of the more memorable days of my life.Read more

    Back to France!

    September 25, 2019 in France ⋅ ☁️ 17 °C

    Just doing the way back. We will go through France but to the Basque Country instead.
    The ferry was delayed, so we had some vouchers for the food. That's nice, isn't it?

    Scarred Landscapes

    April 12, 2018 in France ⋅ 🌫 9 °C

    Amazing day learning about D-Day and seeing the landscapes which have defined years of history. Feels so strange to be standing where my great Uncle Sam Groom delivered heroes to the beach.

    They fight not for the lust of conquest. They fight to end conquest. They fight to liberate.
