Belgian 'short' trip.

Post by Terry » Tue Jul 08, 2014 10:10 pm

Hi
A little explanation first. The wife is an history person mainly WW1 with some WW2.
She wanted to go to the nightly (yes EVERY night) ceremony at the Menin gate in Ieper (Ypres, Belgium) honouring the (mainly) British soldiers that fell in WW1.
On this trip I wanted to visit Moorsele & Wevelgem, which I did, but for the wierdest of reasons.
She had compiled a list of which cemeteries she wanted to visit. TomTom advised the order.
On the journey to the hotel (in Ieper) we visited several merely because we were passing them, but Monday (7th) morning a plan was finalised. We visited about 8 on our way to her 'most wanted' site 'Tyne Cot'. (I sit in the car and read), She came back to the car in tears & wanted to visit no more 'sites' Tyne Cot's 11,000 graves had made their mark.
So off to Moorsele we went. Largish grass field with several hangars, but just OO H23 out, no-one about and all hangars closed. Thence to nearby Wevelgem

Tuesday we decided to saunter back cross country & must have covered most of the Tour de France stage everywhere we went there were road closures, 'DEVIATION' e.t.c., so failed to get to my intended destination of St Omer, (I haven't been there for years).
Have fun
Terry
