There's more to Flanders

Is it 'coming home' or 'going home'? 
I can't decide.

Returning to Flanders continues to give me a warm feeling, akin to an say I, an Englishman, born on St Patrick's Day, and who was named after a Scottish parents 'did' irony rather well..

Check my DNA and you're unlikely to find any connection to Flanders and yet this is, as my dear sister in law calls it, my 'happy place'. 

While the focus of The-Charabanc is the commemoration of all combatants and non-combatants in the first part of the 20th century, I encourage guests to get their eyes 'out of the trenches', since there is so much more to see.

Here, I focus on Flanders, it's rich history and the friendly welcome you are bound to receive.
