This day- July 1st, meaning Canada Day for Canadians- was spent on the Quasimodo Flanders Fields Tour.
If you click that link you’ll get a better idea / list of all the places that we visited- memorials, cemeteries, battlegrounds etc
The most impressive for me was probably visiting the spot where John McCrae practiced as a surgeon during the Second Battle of Ypres and where he likely wrote the poem “In Flanders Fields”.
We also got to see how WWI still affects the lives of people in this area almost 100 years later- as farmers continue to pull shells out of their fields.
It’s a really, really intense tour with loads of information- but definitely worthwhile.
