A part of my trip was to go to Normandy. We went to Omaha and Utah beaches. This is where the Americans landed during WWII. It was weird to think that on those same exact beaches I was standing on, young soldiers, most of them my age and younger, were fighting for their lives and for their country. Imagining the fear that these soldiers felt as they approached the shores of France, not knowing what would happen. Now, houses line the beaches with roads connecting to towns and the pic. The area has changed so much since that war.
