A memorialI went on a four day trip to Belgium and northern France to visit the grave of one of my ancestor from World War 1 and to pay my respects to all the solders who gave up their lives. I was a very moving and unforgettable trip. If you get the opportunity to go on a trip like this, take it because you will see life in a whole new perspective.

 ‘ A man’s destination is not his destiny, every country is home to one man and exile to another. Where a man died bravely at one with his destiny, that a soil is his. Let his village remember. ‘

‘My ancestors were fighters, something that I have inherited’
