Europe 2005

Our 2005 visit to Europe was prompted by a reunion of #1 Fighter Wing RCAF, hosted by the French and Belgian villages where we lived and worked during our tour of duty at the Marville, France air base under NATO. The reunion marked 50 years since the arrival of the Canadians at Marville in 1955. It took place Friday - Sunday, Sep 2-4, 2005.

We elected to spend some time in France and Germany before the reunion, then after the reunion we went to England to see Heather-Anne and family and to visit some areas of England that we had not seen before. These pages cover the European portion of this adventure. Our itinerary was as follows:
  • Mon, Aug 22 - Flew Montreal to Paris via Zoom Air.
  • Tue, Aug 23 - Rented a car in Paris and drove to Strasbourg with a brief stop in Nancy.
  • Three nights in Strasbourg.
  • Four nights in Bad Durkheim, Germany.
  • Three nights in Boppard, Germany.
  • Four nights in Virton Latour, Belgium, for the 1 Wing Reunion.
  • One night near the Paris Charles de Gaulle airport.
  • Flew to England for another couple of weeks visit.
