Lest we Forget

As tomorrow is ANZAC day here in Australia, I thought I would post some photos from my last trip to Europe. My fiance and I did some hiking in the Julian Alps, on the border between Italy and Slovenia. We were staying in Italy, but on this particular hike we found ourselves straddling the border on two occasions. These photos are from Sella Robon (1865m), where we found ruins from a WW1 outpost and what must be a marker in memory of the 11th day of the 11th month. As we sat amongst these ruins taking in the scenery, with no civilisation in sight, we had a tiny glimpse in to what it must have been like to sit in these bunkers, watching and waiting.

Lest we forget.
