Hi Sher!

Dropping by to tell you that I loved your post!

I have seen many flights to Normandy but haven’t taken them up since there’s so many other places to visit in Europe. But I have to say that your pictures have changed my mind about it. Especially Mont St-Michel, it literally looks out of a Disney movie, and Fécamp just looks so dreamy. Thanks again!

P.S. I’m going to HAVE to share this post!

I am amazed at all the beautiful places in Normandy. I am particularly amazed by Le Havre. It really is amazing to see them rebuild the place & make it to be structurally unique.

How absolutely beautiful! The landscapes really would inspire any artist.

Actually Monet painted quite a few paintings in a hamlet called Les Petite Dalles. I visited there last year. And it still looks exactly like the paintings.
