Mont St Michel
After a couple of days meeting history and drama, passing on those places where civilization was defended with courage and blood, to put an end to WW2, the visit to Mont St Michel is a relief, remembering the best of mankind.
Of course, no matter when you are going, you will have to share it with thousands, but it is worthwhile.
We have a double debt to those who gave their lives to free Europe:
Freedom, and the peace that, while the memory of the tragedy is alive, everybody maintains as the most valuable value of humanity.
We all know almost all the details of D day events, but being there, stepping on those hills, imagining the beaches exploding all around, watching the sea of graves that smash us in several locations in the area, like in Colleville, is unforgettable.
