Here’s a story that will make you feel vastly in inferior. Lots of media coverage of the 70th anniversary of the Normandy invasion this week. Two of my favorites were about a couple of gentlemen with unique travel stories to say the least.
One attempted to get to the ceremonies too late to make it with an official tour… So he just hopped a bus on his own and found his own way! This did result in his being reported as missing by the retirement home he was staying in… But all was cleared up!
The second one was a member of the airborne on D Day so despite being 93 he decided to enter the same way and parachuted in!
