France and Belgium May 24-June 5, 2016
Mr. Dabs had been talking for several years about taking a trip to France and Belgium so that the men of the family could see the WWI and WWII sites. I'm not sure how I got included, perhaps because they'd all be lost without my superior navigation skills and meticulous planning (cough, cough). It then turned into my nephew's graduation present (sorry, not adopting anymore nieces or nephews) and we started out in Paris, made our way to Pierrefonds, Compiegne and Bruges before seeing the WWI sites in Ieper, Diksmuede and Passchendaele. We visited a few more French cities-Rouen, Amiens, Rennes, Dinan, St. Malo and Mont St. Michel and then the WWII sites with a guide on one day and on our own the 2nd, Omaha, Utah, the American Cemetery, St. Mere Eglise, Pointe du Hoc and a couple of other small museums and sites
