I have heard the poem countless times, even as a young girl memorized it for school. This is the first time I have felt a real attachment to it. On my right are rows of white head stones and to my left, the ...

    ... a bit dutch and a bit tourist.
    Anyway, 50-60 miles to get to Bruges, and probably another 50-60 miles around Bruges thanks to that most argumentative and irritating invention - the Sat Nav.
