One of the things I love about travelling is seeing unfamiliar signs and beautiful lettering as well as a few quirky additions to road signs which make me smile. I think that my mum’s friend Brody may have had a hand in the beautiful calligraphic signage found in Bruges. The stone carving at the Tyne Cot Cemetery is sombre and powerful and it was overwhelming to see the thousands of names carved on the Menin Gate. It is hard for us to even imagine the awfulness of The Great War: the mud, the pain, the unrelenting agony and the sheer number of those dead. We must not forget.signage7signage4
