Normandy – France

Here are the captures from my recent travel to Normandy, a region of the Northern France.

1. Claude Monet Giverny garden.

This has a flower garden and also a water garden. It has an ultimate collection of flowers.

2. Etretat

It is a place with beautiful beaches, natural arcs, and cliffs. Sunset looks great from here. When the tides are low you can cross the cliff (the one in below picture) through a cave and can explore the part of the cliff (L’Aiguille). And it is not a sand beach but filled with pebbles in order to save the cliffs from erosion.

This is what you see if you cross through the cave (L’Aiguille)

3. Arromanches-Les-Bains

It was once an artificial port and the place where Normandy landings on D-day took place during World war 2 (6th June 1944).  Even now, one can find the remains of the harbor in the beach.

4. Mont Saint-Michel

It’s a rocky island few meters away from the land and easily accessible by the foot bridge. Low tide allowed us to explore around the island and enjoy the breathtaking sunset.

Poland Pravasa

Here are few pictures of my recent travel to Poland. Wherein I visited the capital city-WarsawKraków, and Zakopane.

Kraków is one of the oldest cities of Poland situated on Vistula river. St. Mary’s Basilica is one of the main attraction.

Zakopane is a city in the base of the Tatra Mountains in southern Poland. Morskie Oko is a must place to visit.
