Title: Photos from Normandy
Post by: Andrij on 14 September, 2009, 07:30:57 pm
Overall, cycling in France was an absolute joy and Normandy is beautiful.  My pics can be found here (http://picasaweb.google.com/Bebchenko/Normandy09), with some highlights below.

Beautiful place and nice shots; although as a Breton, Normandy wouldn't usually figure highly in my book!  ;D

Normandy is beautiful.  Not as nice as Brittany, of ocurse, Frenchie, but beautiful in itself.  And the contrast of the idyllic landscapes with the immediacy of the horror of the landing beaches is quite striking.
