Paris & Normandy Pictures - 2004

In June of 2004, we decided to go to France to visit a few places we had not seen before.  We took the Chunnel from London to Paris where we spent a couple of days, followed by driving to the Loire Valley, and then on to the area around Normandy.  Our home base was Villers Beaucage where we could drive less than an hour to see many interesting sights which are shown below. 

I've also thrown in a few pictures of Paris since we spent a few days there as well. If you haven't read the story of our trip to France this year you can read it here.
