Visiting Vimy Ridge was an honour. I had seen models of the monument in many different museums, but seeing it in person was completely different, it was very impactful. Another highlight of this trip was getting to visit the Anne Frank house. After learning so much about her and the injustice she went through, it was a privelege to see where she wrote her diary.
