Tony, what was the "gran" experience?? :thumbsup:


A typo!

The first 3 days were 12 hour stints. We had a New Zealander and an Australian with us who each had a long list of places to see and cemeteries to visit so the schedule was pretty well packed. Thankfully things slowed down a bit when we got to Ypres.

Thanks to the meticulous planning and research by David Bartlett of Bartletts Battlefield Journeys everyone saw most of those places on their lists and I certainly visited places and saw things that I had not seen before.
