The sacrifice of our soldiers in the two world wars earned Canada’s right to self-governance. Here are ten Canadian War Memorials, in Europe, all Canadians should visit.
Gelderland is home to a few of our favourite places in The Netherlands. First there is the far eastern, capital city of Arnhem, which we’ve explored with our local friends. Then, there is Apeldoorn, home to one of our favourite zoos, Apenheul, affectionately known as ‘the monkey park.’ We also spent an emotional Liberation Day in Apeldoorn and Holton (in Overijssel) and we were blown away by the outpouring of emotion and heartfelt thanks to Canadians. We’d like to return to Gelderland and visit the palaces in the region as well as spend more time in the forests of the east.
