Margraten cemetery

While I was for business in the south of the Netherlands, I visited Margraten. Here is the Netherlands American Cemetery and Memorial situated. It is Europe’s third largest war cemetery for unidentified soldiers who died in the second World War. 8,301 soldiers are buried there under long rows of white crosses and stars of David. All graves are adopted by locals, who attend the graves and lay flowers every now and then.

It is very impressive and it makes you very humble to walk along those graves. So many men died for our freedom.

Ireland February 2014

Completely unexpected, I had to travel to Ireland for my work. It felt if I never left the island, because of my two weeks stay last December.

Obviously I had very limited time to explore the coast with my camera and had only the camera basics with me. Fortunately Owen O’Grady and myself managed to meet for a short look around the Copper coast and finished it off with a delicious Guinness at Hayes’ in Bonmahon. Thanks again Owen, looking forward when we meet in Dungarvan.

This series contains pictures of Tramore, Stradbally, Ardmore, Ballydowane Cove and  Granville hotel in Waterford

Hope you will enjoy them.

Regards

Peter
