On our trips to Europe Kerrie often has the opportunity to increase her knowledge of history courtesy of Greg's passion for the subject. Over the years we have visited Pearl Harbour in Hawaii, the battlefields and cemeteries of the Somme, the Normandy Beaches from WW2, Gettysburg in USA and now it was time to learn about the Battle of the Bulge, the Maginot Line, find General George Patton's grave and discover what NUTS have to do with war.
