Normandy Dreaming - Almost Ready to Go

We are about to head out to Normandy for a week-long stay at a chateau and travel throughout the area.  Our friend "Jacques" found the place and made all the arrangements and plans.  We travel with a group including Jacques and his wife every two years to wonderful locations - staying in great houses (chateaus, manor houses, villas, etc.).  I am in the midst of packing which I truthfully find the most difficult part of any travel plan!

We will be staying in a chateau near Caen and traveling throughout the area.
I thought it wouldn't hurt to do a little quick research so I would better know what to expect.   I have been following a wonderful blog - My French Country Home Link written from this lovely area of France and saving some of here great photos - see below.  I also have a pinterest board called "All Things French" that has captured images and ideas of Normandy link to my board.

A special day is set aside to do visit the beaches of Normandy involved in "D-Day".  Website devoted to this subject.

From this week in France, we travel to the Amsterdam area  of Holland and have a week's worth of excursions planned for that area!  I will be posting several "after visit" blogs on this trip!  Bon Voyage!
