So we are in Belgium. On the bike to see if it really is a Pan European ( it very much is)
We have been to some sobering sites, the Menin Gate in Ypres being very special as it was where so many soldiers passed never to return. The last post was listened to with great respect by many nations of all ages. Something to reflect on as the European card is played so very often lately. It has certainly impacted on my view of us in Europe.
I will blog for my own reflection on some of the other sites we have visited and will visit in the next few days.
But the boating theme has to be the variety of large barges we have seen on the Meuse
