Well done T you finished it

As always fantasic photography and a great write up, seeing the pictures of Le Cambe and the American Cemetary took me back to our tour of Normandy a few years ago. Stunning place and it stirs something deep within.

Cracking matey and hopefully I'll be seeing you soon

Great Trip, Awesome report.

Thanks for the light reading on a dull winters night. I think you have made my mind up on where we`re going this year now.
