Rain or drizzle all day, 13-18deg, 40km, av. 14km/hr, tot. 1291km. Awoke to the pitter patter of rain on the windows, but seeing we've got a stopover it doesn't matter. Time to just lounge around in bed and wait for a 8am breakfast. We are staying in our first B&B, an old converted three story mansion about 800m from the city centre. It's decked out beautifully, no expense spared, and our room is quite large. No soccer hooligan in this neighbourhood. Peter, who owns and ...

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 ...
... World War 1. So after feeling a little depressed i climbed the bell tower, I cant remember how many steps the lady said it was but it felt like forever but the view ace! This eve we went to see the 'Last Post' that happens 365 days (i think) at 8:00pm exactly everyday! That baffled me so I had to go see. Check the pics out. Was emotional seeing the old men in wheelchairs remembering and all the names of those who died. Coaches come from all over just to see. It was a sight for ...
