What was your favorite trip in 2011?

That’s what I and my colleagues are pondering for an article due in Friday’s USA TODAY.

I’m torn — standing on the D-Day landing beaches in Normandy, France, and walking the clifftops of Brittany’s lesser- known Emerald Coast were both amazing experiences. One in a profound way: Gazing at the rows of pristine white crosses in the American Cemetery near Bayeux marking graves of those who sacrificed their lives in World War II brings a tear to the eyes of even the most hardened.

And leaving the tourist track behind in the off-season to walk Brittany’s tranquil beaches and forests and sample the region’s tangy cider and hearty crepe-like sandwiches called galettes was special, too.

What about you? What and where was your favorite trip in 2011?
