... occurred along the Western Front of WW1. On the way to Vimy we saw a German cemetery where there were countless rows of crosses, an image that became even more impactful when it was explained that each cross denoted the grave of 4 men.
We arrived at the Vimy memorial site and we signed up for a tour of the trenches. We had a short weight for a tour in English and this gave us an opportunity to have our packed lunch and to look ...
Having not done an awful lot since my Round The World Trip other than Graduating, I went with some of my uni friends to Lille in France for a day trip to see the Christmas Markets.
It was a really long day, getting up at 3:45am to drive to Chingford, and not arriving back home until 1:20am the next morning...but it was a lot of fun! Great to spend some time ...
