It’s this really large tapestry telling the story of William the conqueror. Wasn’t the most interesting thing to me. We then ate some lunch and headed to the train station.

A few hours later we passed the first cemeteries of the Flanders fields where, amongst the millions of others, many Australians have lost their lives in the first world war. Perhaps on the way back we can give ...
