Our first Road Trip outside of the UK since the advent of the pandemic and BREXIT – we chose the small city of Ypres (also known as Ieper) in Flanders, Belgium as our destination – a ton of British Military History, great beer and delicious chocolate. 🙂
The city of Ypres might be famous for its daily act of remembrance at the Menin Gate (more on that soon) but there is still plenty to discover and enjoy in the side streets.
Up on the city’s ramparts is a small but beautiful Commonwealth War Grave Cemetery, which overlooks the River Ieperlee.
There’s a museum right in the heart of the city.
And the restaurants serve up delicious food and beer. 🙂
