... a massive memorial to the missing Canadian soldiers. Vimy's ridge is where the Germans took control. From the ridge you can see all the surrounding valleys, giving them a great advantage. Neither the French or the British could take it back. But the Canadians, fighting for the first time under a Canadian general succeeded. Which is why their memorial is here. Its massive and its beautiful. The last two stops of the day were the French cemetery and the German cemetery. ...

... Train was cool but we were travelling backward the whole time. I guess I'd have to travel from Arras to Paris to go forward. The countryside was picturesque. So pretty here. Green fields and old country houses, just like you see when watching the Tour de France. Got a few happy snaps. I couldn't check into my BnB until 6 (its a home stay I found on Air BNB) so once I arrived I had about 7 hours to kill. I thought I could store my luggage at the train station, ...

To get there ...

... We were on a mission to stock up on some decent French wines, French beers and some Haribo marshmallows with sherbet on (just in case we can't get them anywhere else!) before we arrive in Belgium tomorrow. We went to the tram stop and bought a couple of tickets and were off to the big supermarket near the university we had been to before. It is still an impressive City with some marvellous buildings; the “Gare” (railway station) being very ...

Day 11 - Villers-Bretonneux

A travel blog entry by eab2014 on Jun 28, 2014

Coinciding with the centenary of the start of WWI, we visited the Australian National Memorial at Villers-Bretonneux (hereafter referred to as V-B). We began with a march up the hill, past the graves to the memorial wall and tower. There, the mayor of V-B welcomed us and Eric Brisse (our French host and the man who made the tour happen) gave a moving speech. There wasn't a dry eye among us. I have reproduced Eric's speech at the end of today's blog. ...
