A trip log from Saturday, October 3, 2015 – D-Day Beaches/Normandy.
A 4:00am wake up call this morning and we were down waiting for a car to the train station at 4:45am. Caught the 5:13am RER train into the city. Transferred to the M14 Metro Line to Saint Lazar and arrived around 6:20 for our 7:45am train to Normandy. So hung around the station and waited.. and waited… and 20 minutes before departure our train popped up on the board with a track number and we found it and boarded. We arrived in Caen just before 10am and found our tour group for the short bus ride to the Caen Museum. Our guide walked us through the museum and then joined us for lunch. After lunch boarded a mini-van for the ride up to the beaches. Started at La Pointe Du Hoc then continued east/south to Omaha Beach, Normandy American Cemetery and Arromanches before returning to Caen just after 6pm for our 7:11pm train back to Paris. Once in Paris reversed our morning course taking the M14 to the RER A to Disneyland arriving at Disney security just before 11pm. On the walk back to the hotel stopped at McDonalds which was mobbed but we were starved so picked up some food and hiked back to the room to each and call it a night.
