Sunday, August 4 – Saturday, August 10, 2019
Early in the morning on June 6, 1944, about 156,000 Allied soldiers stormed a handful of beaches along the coast of Normandy, France. Although choppy seas and heavy German resistance prevented them from fully meeting their objectives that day, they were able to gain a crucial foothold. By late August, Paris had been liberated, and Germany’s surrender came not long afterward. On this Adventure we will experience the two American landing points that, along with British and Canadian forces, kicked off the Allied invasion of Western Europe during World War II.
Join us for a full week of exploring and understanding the Normandy Invasion. Your co-host Dwayne Lee, along with Artistic Gourmet Adventures, will provide a week long Adventure where you will experience for yourself the emotion of standing where the soldiers stood and imagining through your eyes the events that took place. Authentic Normandy accommodations, gourmet meals and daily excursions to the most important sites that remain to remind us today of the price that was paid for our freedom are all included.
