... was presented in a very interactive way. I read a little sign in one of the town centres that spoke of the devastation to Belgium and it's people during WWI. In 1915, over 5,000 Belgians fled to France for safety from the Germans. In 1919, only 500 returned and of those 79 left as they couldn't handle what they had returned to - their beautiful village had been levelled. We visited Hill 62 today - wow. Josh ...

Some people don't like Belgian beer but I think it is good. Full of flavour and aroma. Off to a traditional Flemish (as Brugge is in ...
