Whether in…York…

Fromelles War Cemetery where the remains

of soldiers recently found in mass graves,

in nearby Pheasant Wood,

are interred.

Entrance to Fromelles War Grave Cemetery.

 The middle grave in the front (foreground) row,

with the Australian flag,

belongs to MGW’s cousin’s uncle…

18-year-old Private Justin Hercules Breguet.

And….because MGW and her cousin share

the same (Breguet) grandmother,

Justin is MGW’s uncle also.

Not sure if it is correct to talk in he first person of someone

who died 100 years ago…

 

but it does seem correct.

Apologies to students of the English language.

As you can see the War Graves are attached to the

Fromelles General Cemetery,

so a visit to Fromelles,

is a visit to the fallen soldiers as well.

No excuses.

Wanderlust

Some previously unpublished photos

from some of the cities we visited

during our travels last September.
Brugges or is it Bruge?

I m never sure and would love to hear/see

how locals spell the name.

No visit to Amsterdam would be complete

without visiting a diamond cutting factory.



Rhineland-Black Forest region.

Vienna.

Florence

Lucerne

Salzburg

Finally, Venice.

When we arrived at La Place

(whether in Belgium or The Netherlands I don’t remember)

it felt like…

 we, no, I was still digesting a hearty breakfast.

 Sad to say that I did not sample any of these

for the above reason.

However, my mouth waters every

time I see the photos.

Brugge-4, Belgium

 

 Last week in Brugge.

One of the last photographs in Market Square were these horses,

carts and drivers catering for tourists wanting

a gentle ride around Brugge.

After we walked back to our hotel and freshened up

we returned for a Welcome Dinner which

provided opportunities for some twilight photography.

Belfort Tower in Brugge.

brugge_het-zand-fountain_0280The Het Zand fountain was one of the most

memorable sights of our trip, in my opinion.

 

brugge_het-zand-fountain_0282

Maybe it was that I had not seen a fountain…

brugge_het-zand-fountain_0301

illuminated like this before.


brugges-fountain_0299

Or maybe it was just the atmosphere and camaraderie

which was beginning to form between all travelers.
