Traveling Ted is a blog that takes readers along on my adventures hiking, canoeing, skiing, and international backpacking. Many blogs focus on one aspect of backpacking, but I tackle both the outdoor adventure side and international exploration as well.

German bunkers Normandy, France

German bunker in Normandy, France

The French coastline is dotted with remnants from Hitler’s vaunted Atlantic Wall from World War II. One of the best places to see these historical monuments is in Normandy. Many bunkers were destroyed by air or by naval bombardment, but many lie intact. They are a testament to the bravery of the men who had to face the artillery and machine gun onslaught in order to attain a foothold in France in order to create a second front and eventually liberate Europe.

Stay tuned,


The goal of Traveling Ted is to inspire people to outdoor adventure travel and then provide tips on where and how to go.
