In June we traveled through Normandy and took part in the D Day celebrations. On our way back to Paris we spent a few days in Giverny to check out Monet’s garden with my sister and her family. Then, we took ourselves to Italy! We started in Rome then took the train to Florence and on to Venice. On our way home, we had a LONG layover in Zürich which provided us time to pop into the city and have lunch. June was full of educational experiences for all of us and it has given us lots to think about for years to come.
