Today, we explored a little of the military history of this region - mainly WWII, but also medieval! The Battle of the Bulge, said to be a major turning point of World War II, raged in St Vith and the surrounding areas at Christmas 1944 and the following fortnight. It remains the battle with the highest number of casualties for the USA. The casualties were terrible - Wikipedia suggests 90,000 American killed or wounded, and over 100,000 Germans. The battle was ...

We then had the exciting experience of buying a real, ...

Cosy it was, but quiet it wasn't. Having been rudely awoken in the early hours of the morning, by what sounded like jet engines, we woke up dazed, later than expected at 9am. With the sounds of the truck cargo swapping mule still ringing in our ears, we had breaky and got on the road, bound for Belgium.

We were heading for Spa, travelling via the amazing free German Autobahns, ducking across the French border for a quick bread stop (for one last French ...
