Where to visit in Normandy for D-Day history
For those of you who know me you’ll know I’m passionate about 20th Century history, in particular the Second World War. When I was little I used to quiz my Grandma about what it was like during the war, and then when I moved to France it was the turn of my gran-in-law to answer my questions about how different it was for the French during WWII.
As I’m sure you’re aware today marks the 70th anniversary of the Normandy landings – more commonly known as D-Day (and Jour-J in French) – and I’m lucky enough to have been given this fab infographic D-Day guide, by Brittany Ferries, to share with you in case you’re considering visiting the area in the coming months, and want to take in some of its history:

As we have family in Brittany, which is not too far from Normandy, I really hope that Hubs and I will get a chance to take the girls over to northern France at some point, to share with L (and C when she is older) the importance of D-Day, and to make the history come alive for them.
