TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Moderne Arras
Arrived and was greeted by a very friendly monsieur who luckily spoke very good English. The rooms were very clean and tidy, although in need of a little 'Moderne-isation'.
Ideally situated next to the train station and within easy reach of the cathedrals and restaurant/bistro lined squares and streets.

... parked but no office. After a bit of mucking around it turns out the office was in the main section of the international railway station where we arrived yesterday. Eventually we find it, they have our reservation and all is good. The Avis lady tries to up sell us to an automatic car with GPS which would have been 17 euro dollars extra per day.

... heaps of Esperantists so I'm guaranteed to meet somebody new. Ah, France! The home of smoking being cool. Outside the pub turns out to be a really handy spot. At least half of the congress goers seem to have to go past me. These two? Well I last saw them in Hobart a couple of weeks ago! Jenny seems to have spotted my beer. She's pretending to be surprised. Here I was much to late with my camera. That ...
Duisans British Cemetery was our next stop. Here Harold Johnson is buried. He is the elder brother of Sally's grandmother (deceased). The drizzle turned to rain, but we had time to plant a couple of flowering plants and pay our respects. He was 20 years old when he was killed in 1918, and had enlisted in 1915 (likely right after his 18th birthday). Sally's grandmother was not much more than 12 years old when she last saw her brother. It was fitting ...
... in my GPS, while Steve C and Ian opted for the main road to cut out some of the distance and hills. Our route followed some tiny lanes (some of them were so tiny we half expected them to end in a farm yard, but thankfully they were all good!). The last 15 or 20km of the planned route was along the main road anyway and, after a while, we notice a familiar shape drawing closer ahead of us. As ...
