Apologies for being a little off topic

I noticed the Amiens pages here are a little bit round and about so I have taken the liberty to include my Somme memorial info in the off the beaten path section, although it is a very well beaten path.

There is also plenty to see and do in Amiens which is the largest city in the region and has an awesome cathedral . . . of which more later

    Must have been a moving experience. Hopping across the Channel is all very well for those who live on the south coast!! Would take us nearly a day to get there.
