Today in France, we are packing our bags for the beach. Ben and I, along with my sister and brother-in-law are catching a 7 a.m. train to Normandy to visit the D-Day beaches, Ben’s one itinerary request for our entire four-week French escapade . I visited the beaches in college when I studied abroad in France, and it was one of the most powerful experiences of my life. I’m eager to revisit this solemn place and see if, and how, it will touch me this time.
Having my sister here makes this experience even more special. She is one of my best friends, and I know that being able to relive memories with her later on will (at some point) make our journey seem more real.
