From beautiful Brugge we drove south west to Ypres. Along the way we stopped at some of the war memorials to the fallen soldiers. All this area is part of Flanders. We stopped at the Tyne Cot cemetery. It is the biggest commonwealth memorial. It was quite surreal looking at the walls knowing every name on the wall represents a soldier whose body was never found or identified.
Next we stopped at ...
Ostend, Belguim was a quick 2 night stopover on our way to Amsterdam.
It had a huge beach and a large esplanade with some cool orange art features.
