D-Day: The Invasion of Normandy and the Liberation of France
“We are pleased to offer an in-depth trip for the 75th Anniversary of D-Day next year. Led by local battlefield guides who are experts in the field, this tour offers an exclusive experience that incorporates pieces from The National WWII Museum’s oral history and artifact collections into presentations that truly bring history to life. I visited Normandy and the D-Day beaches last year, and it was a very emotional experience commemorating and honoring those who fought for our freedom.”
Traveler: Wayne ’71 & Shizuko Adachi Number of Trips with UCLA Alumni Travel: 2 First Trip:Eastern & Oriental Express (2014) Most Recent Trip:Circumnavigation of Iceland (2018) Favorite Memory: “Our recent trip, the Circumnavigation of Iceland, was extremely special—cruising around this island nation, seeing fjords, ice fields, waterfalls and other hot spots with the boiling mud pots. Meeting and traveling with other UCLA alumni was very rewarding and we reminisced about our memorable times at UCLA. We also learned about the history and people of Iceland from presentations by guest lectures aboard the ship. This adventure to see the Land of Fire and Ice will always be at the top of our list of places to visit.”
