We only did a bus tour (50th anniversary for us) and didn’t really do anything like you were able to do. I’m so thankful —we got to see Switzerland through the windows of the Bus. This tapestry is absolutely mesmerizing and was one of the many highlights of our trip to France.
- We are feeling very blessed to have seen it in real life and to have visited the lovely, picturesque town of Bayeux. Thank you for a daily dose of Europe! My travel bug is definitely biting, and I love seeing what Mr. Rick Steves has to show us; it constantly adds to my bucket list!
- I am a firm believer in Read Before You Go and am currently reading The Plantagenates by Dan Jones which picks up where the Bayeaux Tapestry leaves off. Great read if you’re interested. I am in the Normandy Region now and will be going to Bayeux tomorrow! I was just telling my husband yesterday that I needed to research more about the Tapestry and then I see this post from you!
- Thank you SO MUCH for sharing ~ it is truly appreciated . Ever since we saw this it’s come up again and again in our daily lives. Was essay topic on my son’s PSAT test – he couldn’t believe it. Had just seen it a few weeks earlier. Can’t escape the darned thing now. Travel! The gift that keeps on giving
Ever since we saw this it’s come up again and again in our daily lives. Was essay topic on my son’s PSAT test – he couldn’t believe it. Had just seen it a few weeks earlier. Can’t escape the darned thing now. Travel! The gift that keeps on giving I Iike the onomatopoeia “shoop.” Very effective.
The history of Europe, the East, the Americas, mankind is a kind of horror story. It prompts one to ask why we think we will have peace, love and a decent life. No wonder our education curricula included world history and teachers pound these facts into our little heads — to see the underlying theme of power and greed.
We spent a few days in Normandy visiting the D-Day sites, the American cemetery, and Mont St. Michel, but our stay in Bayeux and visit to see the tapestry are highlights. How this beautiful textile survived, mostly intact, is incredible!
