Holiday in Belgium and Germany 1954

It must have been very unusual for Britons to want to go on holiday to Germany in 1954, but Geoff went back to some of the places that he had seen when on National Service, taking his wife Jean. He had liked the Belgians that he met, and included some Belgian towns in his itinerary.

Here are some of the holiday brochures. I have copied part of each. Belgium first, following their itinerary.
