Sainte-Mère-Église, France – Church Where Paratrooper Landed on the Steeple

Sainte-Mère-Église, France is best known for the 700 year old medieval church where Private John M. Steele, a 82nd Airborne Paratrooper, landed on the steeple and was stuck until the Germans found him and took him into custody. Luckily a few days later he was able to escape and made it to an American hospital for care. Today you can visit the church and village, there is also an Airborne Museum there [Read more…]

Utah Beach Landing Museum – Sainte-Marie-du-Mont, France

Utah Beach Landing Museum in Sainte-Marie-du-Mont, France (aka Musée du Débarquement Utah Beach) is a must visit for those in the Normandy area, it is the best museum in the D-Day area and is on the Utah Beach. I think it may be often overlooked because it’s a bit further from the Omaha beach area but it really shouldn’t be missed.

I’ll be posting our Normandy area itinerary soon but we started [Read more…]

Pointe du Hoc – Cricqueville-en-Bessin, France

Pointe du Hoc in Circqueville-en-Bessin, France was a German bunker that was bombed heavily during WWII. Walking through the crater filled lands is a bit surreal and it makes one glad you weren’t there during the bombing. It’s most often know for it’s impossibly steep walls that were scaled by the brave US Army Rangers to over take the bunkers.

Parking is free in the large parking area by the Visitor’s [Read more…]

Demeter Hof Breit – Farm in Wittlich, Germany

I was so excited when a friend offered to take us out to Demeter Hof Breit – the farm in Wittlich, Germany where you can bottle your own fresh milk! I’d been wanting to try it but hadn’t gotten around to it, and it was great to have her there showing us the ropes. If your looking for fresh milk, eggs, organic or bio fruits and veggies, meats, cheeses, juices, etc you can find it all here at the farm!

Stitch Fix – APO Shopping Made Easy!

I’ve heard about Stitch Fix for awhile but have been hesitant to try it out, after talking with several friends who use it and love it I decided to go ahead and give it a try. I went into it as a huge skeptic and told my friends I’d be lucky if they sent 1 thing that I liked, so imagine my shock when I loved all 5 items! However with it being the first box, there were some sizing issues to I didn’t

It’s a good 1/2 day trip and then you can spend the other half of the day back in Prague. Rick Steve’s also has a [Read more…]
