Yesterday started early, waking up at 6.30 to have a chill start, as the taxi arrived at 7.45am.
We ate some breakfast, had a bathroom break before going to the lobby, we grabbed the taxi to St Lazare train station, arriving at 8am. We bought the tickets, we first tried a ticket machine which could´t find bayeux, so we went to a real ticket person and bought them (120 euros for both having a return trip as well).
The train left at 8.43, so we waited for the train for a bit, and off we went!
We decided to head for Normandie right away and the bus for the beaches left at 11.40, so we took a bathroom break and bought our bus tickets. We then grabbed the bus and arrived at Omaha beach and the American cemetery, where over 10.000 soldiers lay. I must admit it felt surreal, seeing it with my own eyes. As the cemetery lays on a cliff we could see the beaches.
We walked around for a bit, taking it all in, and then we tried to find a way down to the beaches, but decided it was far off, so we decided to go to a few museums, the Overlord museum and Big Red One museum. The Overlord museum was good, but The Big Red One was very small and not worth 5 euros.
We found a crepes restaurant, so we went in there and grabbed some food, I had a ham and cheese crepe with Nutella and banana dessert, while Johan had a hot dog crepes with a random dessert that had the waiter flambéed the dessert, which was awesome!
After that we walked around the town even more, before heading back to the train station and messing around a little bit.
The train ride back went straight to Paris St Lazare and we were tired as hell during the train ride. it went smoothly though.
We took a taxi back to the hotel and went to sleep kinda quickly!
