Just arrived back in Belgium in Ghent aire for a look around the city tomorrow.. So far we have been to.... ypres to see the last post. Truly amazing and sombre at the same time and so much more than I thought it would be... Then shot off to Amsterdam for a couple of nights... crap site but ideally located for a trip round the drug mecca on the bikes...sadly had a very lucky escape when tara fell in the IJ canal and had to be rescued because there was no place within 2 miles to get out...i thought i was going to lose her as i tried to lift her over a very large metal bank about 4 ft high. Luckily a coupLe of joggers came over to help and we managed to lift a 10 stone dog wet through over 4 ft high whilst being below water level ourselves. Moved on to koLn and had a lovely ride around the city and such a beautiful place even though the people were quite rude especialy the bloke parked next to us.... had to visit the vet as tara was up all night itching and been diagnosed with a skin infection from her time in the water... Now moved on to Ghent and a nice parking spot...quick look around the city tomorrow before heading off to brugge for one last night before returning home.... Phew. ..
