All in Belgium

Avoiding Crowds (and Children) in Belgium

After our stop in Ypres, we decided to slowly make our way up through Belgium to The Netherlands. Our original plan had been to head up along the Belgian coast. After some thought we decided that, being August, the possibility of running into lots of small humans during their school holidays was way too high. Given our aversion to little screaming birth units we changed our plans and went up through the center of the country instead.

Our First Stop in Belgium Brought Us to Tears - Ypres

We had reservations on a midday ferry from Dover to Dunkirk, the perfect route to take us to Belgium and our first stop; the town of Ieper (More commonly called by its French name, Ypres). It felt great to be back on the right side of the road and the motorhome seemed to like it too.  At last Iain can see what's coming at a roundabout without having to rely on me craning my neck to tell him.
