Belgium (one week), and Hiking the Alps!
27. 7. - 15. 8. 2019 (20 day trip)
Belgium Italy France Switzerland
I'd like to hit a few cities in Belgium and Luxembourg maybe and visit WW1 sites. After this, we'd be hiking either the Walker's Haute Route or the Tour du Mont Blanc for the next 11 or so days. Feel free to join in for either the Benelux part or the hiking part, or both!!!
Split costs: Yes
Budget: $150 - $500
Type of journey: Backpacking, City break

First visit: Yes
Work & Travel: No
Places I want to see: The Last Post at Ypres’ Menin Gate at 20:00. Tyne Cot (WW1 memorial) Basilica of the Holy Blood in Bruges NATURE OF THE ALPS :D
Things I want to do: I'd like to do a sort of Bruges-Ghent-Ypres thing before getting a train to Chamonix, France to start the hike. Bruges would be walking around and sightseeing, same with Ghent but Ghent is a bit older and I want to go see all the old buildings! Ypres would focus on WW1 sites around the area. Then we head to Les Hauches (if doing the Tour du Mont Blanc) or Chamonix (if doing the Haute Route) to start the hike!
