Well nothing exciting to report today.
Handed the boat back today, loaded up the car and headed north toward Belgium with no fixed plans.
We ended up in Albert which is in the Somme and the centre of a lot of the trench warfare in WW1.
We left Redon at 9.00 and and got to Albert at 5.05 pm and about 550 km later. The trip …
... work went into planning and cooking for a large group of people, but I had never really experienced much of Thanksgiving from that side.
But after lots of shopping, planning and a whole day filled with cooking, Anna, Rachel, Naomi and I managed to pull of a meal for 13 people! Complete with turkey, mashed potatoes, salad, roasted carrots, roasted brussels sprouts, apple cider and apple and pumpkin pies. This all proved to be even more difficult in France since ...
... the outskirts of Fromelles. A total of 250 British and Australian soldiers from this site have been reburied in the Fromelles (Pheasant Wood) Military Cemetery. From there I travel to the Le Trou Aid Post cemetery, Rue Petillon military cemetery and Rue Daivd Military cemetery. After a very moving day I go back to Lille and the hostel for the night with a quick dinner I get to bed for what I'm sure will be just as moving day as today ...
I managed to fit in a quick day trip to Lens to see the Louvre outpost there and also connect with a doctoral student I met last summer. We met there, went to the Louvre, had lunch, and then walked to the top of one of "les terrils" and drank some champagne. It was a lovely day all around. I am fond of coal mining towns because of my own geneology. The town has preserved these large coal mountains as a reminder of the hard work and sacrifice of the coal miners.
... the rain had cleared and the sun was making an appearance but it was still very cold. As we approached the meeting point we spotted Ken and Sandra - from the river cruise, after picking up another 3 Australians we set off to the first stop.
The first stop was the Australian Memorial at villers- Bretonneux where the names of some 15,000 missing Australian soldiers are engraved on the stone work and a large number of Australian have ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Ibis Albert
We got into Albert late with no bookings so tried the Ibis as we were told it had family rooms.
Very pleasantly surprised to find the family room was two adjoining rooms with only one entry door from the corridor, which gave the parents and adults space from each other.
The rate was great under 100 Euro.
Ate at the restaurant and very good value, feeding a family of four for less than 50 Euro.
The rooms were spotless and the staff very welcoming and helpful.
Would recommend this hotel.
