During the night of 5 June 1944 a huge fleet of airplanes came to Europe. Bombers bombed strategic places. Transport planes delivered the airborne divisions. They were shattered over Normandy and no unit landed on its intended landing place. However, the Americans succeeded in their objective to liberate Sainte-Mère-Église. This place and the 109th airborne division are famous, because of the Band of Brother television series.

Check out our photo album about the Bay of islands.
At 3,5 hours driving of Auckland is the Bay of Islands. This group of over 200 islands played an important role in New Zealands history and contains several interesting towns. It is also a place where you can enjoy sea life. Go sailing or take a scenic flight through one of the bluest skies in the world.
We also have a blog. On it you can read a story about a hike in Colli Euganei Regional Park (Italy).
As tempted as we were by the idea of visiting the Museum, being parents of a then one-year-old going for a hike with the baby carrier pack seemed far more pleasant for us as well as for our daughter. Besides, some fresh air would do us good. We parked our car at the visitors center of the park and from there we started walking.
