Nearly ten thousand Americans are buried at the Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial, a World War II cemetery and memorial in Colleville-sur-Mer, Normandy, France, that honours American troops who died in Europe during World War II. In Normandy, many still call these U.S. soldiers “our liberators” in honor and gratitude for their service. The thousands of crosses were an amazing and somber sight to behold, laid just footsteps away from Omaha Beach. The memorial also contains the remains of two Niland brothers, who inspired the story of “Saving Private Ryan”. #travel #normandy #france #grateful

Beautiful graffiti spotted in Arromanches-les-Bains on the Normandy coast. It was on the beaches of Arromanches that, during the Invasion of Normandy immediately after D-Day, the Allies established an artificial temporary harbour to allow the unloading of heavy equipment without waiting for the conquest of deep water ports such as Le Havre or Cherbourg. #travel #france #history
