Friends,

last year we went for Nord-pas-de-Calais for 2 weeks and visited lots of beautiful places and historical locations and musea.

We travelled in September and that was a great idea.... roads were almost empty and temperatures were mild...

So this year we plan to start where we left for 3 weeks in September and we will be cruisin' down the beaches towards Normandy.

What do you think we should visit? The misses don't mind to visit historical locations so fire away...

Campings?
Musea?
Beaches?
Villages/Towns?
Bunkers?
Roads?

Whatever you think of! Let us know!
