An uninspiring ride

Today we made the 190 mile ride to Lens, all on the motorway and really quite boring.

We left the hotel in Troyes at 10am and went to the tabac, only to find it was still closed. We carried on into the centre of Troyes and found another one closed, followed by another one.

Getting a bit frustrated I decided that we would leave to …

... wounded by mustard gas, survived the war. Greg says he was the kindest, most gentle and wonderful man you would ever want to meet despite what he had lived through during the War. If only he could be here today to tell us about his experiences beneath Hill 60. The whole hill is now preserved (as best that nature allows) as it was at the end of the war. The trenches, cave-in hollows and bunker holes/debris are all still clearly visible. We arrived at Ypres at 2pm, despite ...

... a Canadian flag. Josh could write his own blog about men's washrooms in Europe! He is adjusting to the European washroom. The lack of privacy is an issue. Each visit he has a new story to share. Super long day today - been on the go since 7am - sat down for dinner at 10:30pm....in Ypres, Belgium!! Checked into our third hotel since arriving. Another day of rain, rain and more rain. Feeling happy to be clean and ...

We have stopped over here today before we go to Ypres and see the Last Post... It's been a awful day just as Chris Frome crashed out off Le Tour de France in the rain, we've had rain all day and have just spend the afternoon in the dry of Herman playing cards... Hope the weather clears for our two nights in Ypres Thurs/Fri before we head down into Germany next ...

... of the remains was done and displays equipment and artifacts which were recovered during the exhumation. This museum was opened this month, July 2014. The whole setup is very slick and professionally done. It was then onto VC (Cobbers) Corner, about 2km up the road, where there is a life-size bronze statue of a digger carrying a wounded soldier. The inspiration for the statue came from a story of a ...

    The room was nice and clean on arrival. The shower was good as well.

    We had a meal in the restaurant which wasn't up to much. We had asked for our steaks to be well done but they were served up far from well done.
    There was also no vegetables with the meal, it was just steak and chips. 14€ for the meal and 3€50 for a glass of coke.
    As our French is limited, it would have been helpful to have an English menu available as our waiter did not speak any English at all.
