Day 3 - Four Countries

We started our third day in Europe in one nation and ended up traveling across four countries in the course of one day (The Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, and France.) We began our travel day leaving Amsterdam and headed toward the Ardennes region of Belgium where the Battle of the Bulge occurred in 1945. Our first stop was at the American Military Cemetary in the Ardennes. There, many soldiers from the battle and from other battles in the war are burried. Some of our travelers were able to visit the graves of their fallen relatives.

We then proceded south toward the Duchy of Luxembourg, one of the smalles countries in the world. There, we visited the Military History Museum. We then moved on to Metz, France where we spent the evening with a fine dinner.
