|Steeped in Arthurian legends,
Normandie is the supposed birthplace of Lancelot of the Round Table. There
are a number of sites that King Arthur visited (as long as we're believing
the story), as well as a number of trysting places he was reported seen at
with Guinivere...he he he. There's actually an entire tour to take on it.
D-Day. Omaha Beach. Operation Overlord...Innevitably the first thing any American would think of when someone says 'Normandy'. Well, if you want to know more about that, click here, because I'm not going there when there's so much political tension around. These days, that beach sounds almost as safe as it was back on June 6, 1944. I vote instead that I introduce you to a new type of alcohol...Calvados! By the way, Normandie is quite famous for many other things as well, like, Sir Lancelot of the Lake was from Normandie. It was once ruled by the Saxons and Vikings, which is apparent if you look for it. Camembert cheese was invented in Normandie
