Found a little bar to have a drink in - no Bacardi though so Kirsty had a very strong Vodka!!
Restaraunt for evening meal was lovely. Paul had Entrecoute and Kirsty overdosed on 4 Cheese Pizza - both which were lovely.
Tried to find our way back to the hotel, but after many round the corners and an hour later, we managed it - …
... shops and eight hairdressers, but not one coffee shop. Found a baker though and had a nice ham and cheese bread roll and an almond croissant. Good fuel for cold days. Comines had the biggest and flashiest Town Hall for such a small place we'd seen anywhere. The Cathedral was pretty special too, but what about the caffeine addicts shop?! We then hopped on a great off-road cycle path (must be out of France) nearly all the way to Ypres. About 5km out Wendy made a ...

I always thought that the Vimy monument was to remember Canadians who died during the Vimy campaign - not so....this monument is a memorial for all Canadian soldiers who lost their lives on French soil and their bodies have not been found. The names on the memorial go on, and on. This was a particularly special day for Josh and I as we ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Moderne Arras
