Travel Theme-Warm

My

Warm

Travel Theme.

In early June I set off on my tour of

Western Front WW I battlefields. 

MGW was not interested,

hence it was a solo trip.

MGW was not all that happy to see my Facebook

posts with me in shorts and shirts sleeves

at her relative’s Fromelles grave.

The weather had turned cold Down Under.

The sun shone on the road to

Vlaanderen, in Belgium

 and continued to do so at

Hill 60…

the site of the Christmas Truce

at Prowse Point.

All in all one could not ask for

better weather while travelling.

Travel Theme-Behind

My

Behind

 Travel Theme.

~~~~~

A few years ago while in Africa…

I developed a totally unfounded reputation of

being a tail-end Charlie.

Nothing has changed and this year,

at Hill 60, in Belgium, the only…

time I was in front (of the crowd) was when

I scrambled up this bunker to have my photo taken.

These days however, the ascent is far easier than the descent.

So by the time I had carefully descended from

my precarious position,  most of the crowd

had reach our starting point again.

And yes, there I was back, bringing up the rear of

my fellow travellers and the next group

of school children to visit Hill 60.
