Amazing Ardennes

I could try and wax lyrical about the beauty of the River Meuse as it winds it’s way timelessly through steep hills covered in tress in a myriad shades of green, with occasional cliffs of various stone and slate, forcing their way to the sun like holiday makers fighting for a spot on the beach. However, even armed with a bundle of thesaurus’ I couldn’t do the scenery justice, so instead, dear reader, here are some photos.

Beautiful village of Vireux

Below are a series of images of an extremely poignant memorial to atrocities carried out in Dinant on 23 August 1914. Carved into metal are the names of those who perished.
