Supposedly Sunday and Monday are supposed to be decent, but today oddly enough has been relatively nice. I really want to check out the Normandy D-Day exhibit http://www.normandy-france.net/D-Day/D-day.htm , but I just don’t know if it’s too far out of our way for a quick day trip from Germany. I’ve always been a fan of World War I & II. If you’ve ever played the Call of Duty 2 series then you’ve experienced the Normandy Beach storyline. The intensity of the invasion scene was scary intense, especially if you’re an old school gamer like me who tends to hike the game settings up to the hardest levels. I think it took me an entire day to finally survive the landing. I almost had to lower the game settings to get through that battle scene. I’m attaching a link to it below from Youtube.com
Even to an ex-soldier like me the scene is unbelievably realistic. It definitely gave me an appreciation for the accomplishment of the invasion like I never had before. Anyway, this will be my first time in France, which is super cool. I’ll be updating my Trip Advisor maps to show my new country. Looking at all of the areas I’ve been around the globe, it’s cool to see where I’ve been. Although I’ve circled the globe several times now, all of my visits so far have been near the same longitude. Sometime I’m going to have to take a trip to a polar cap to spread out my points a little more.
I’ve been working on the final action packed scenes in Destiny and it’s intense. There is so much going on. Of course I’m doing my best to leave several intense cliff hangers for everyone to be bugging me about when the next book to the series is coming out. I keep on going back to the fight scenes and adding in more detail and story to them. I had initially planned to kind of skip through the scenes quickly, but that is proving to not be possible. It really goes better with the storyline I’ve planned out to have the detail, but it’s a lot of work. Every time I look down at my word count there’s several more thousand words added and still so much left to tell before I get to the final scene.
Anyway, for those of you who are free for Spring Break I hope you have a great time off. Do something fun and memorable.
