The Canadian Museum at Normandy. This museam exhibited artifacts depicting Canadian involvement in WWII. The main displays were organized chronologically along a curved hallway with one side showing what was going on in Europe, while the other side showed what people on the "home front" were doing to support the war effort from Canada. It was very well thought out and ended up being one of my favorite museums. The entire museum is funded by donations, and it not affiliated with the Canadian government.

Ypres, Belgium has an amazing World War I museum which I thoroughly enjoyed. I have posted several pictures from the museum in the past, and will probably post more in the future. Attached to the museum is a wonderful cafe, with lots of chrome and glass tables and chairs. It was quite picturesque.

This is the main gate into Le Mont-Saint-Michel. I will be posting more pictures of this monastery/castle in the future, as it is such an amazing place. It is built out on a small island off the coast of France, near Normandy. In old days it was an island, and a causeway was built to connect it to the mainland. Eventually the area around the causeway was filled with sediment which now forms a land-bridge.
