Back from another trip

As I'm sure you've noticed and I hope you care, I haven't blogged for more than a week. That's because I was traveling in Belgium and The Netherlands to write a series for Gadling. I'm four articles in with several more to go. One post that fans of military history might find interesting is my visit to a series of German bunkers from World War Two.

A couple of weeks ago I was chatting online with a Dutch man from the Gouda region. He told me that the farmers there were fascinated by the American Civil War and many invested in Confederate war bonds. I kept an eye out for them when prowling through the antique stores in Antwerp but sadly I didn't find any. Strange that they threw money at the Confederate government. The Dutch are usually pretty shrewd in their investments!
