... both huge but german one in particular took my breath away. Unlike the allied forces who are buried all over the place, all the german bodies where gathered up and buried in one place. The graves are marked with crosses. They don't even get one cross each, there is one cross for four soldiers, and it was a massive field of crosses. Over 45,000 soldiers are buried here.

I became friends with three girls from Canada, Finland, and New Zealand/ Malaysia and so we went around together. most of ...
... it was quite scary to imagine being 15 feet underground when World War One is being fought above you and at any minute you could be gassed out by the enemy. From Zonnebeke we drove to Ieper (Ypres) where Menin gate stands (an enormous archway/tunnel at the entrance to the old town with all of the Commonwealth names of soldiers known only unto God written on the walls). It was very surreal to see just how many names were on it, also given that the names on the wall at Tyne Cot ...
