On Victory in Europe hiatus

This blog will be on hiatus until at least May 10.
I have the honour of attending and covering events in the Netherlands from May 1-7 around the 65th anniversary of Victory in Europe and the liberation of the Netherlands. Students from Woodstock's Huron Park Secondary School are attending these events (and others I won't be at) as well over this time period. I may tweet occasionally from Europe as time and connectivity allows.
Please check out my newspaper's coverage, as well as the website and blog maintained by HPSS.
Metroland Durham Region reporter Crystal Crimi and photographer Sabrina Byrnes are on the same tour as myself-- check out their blog, which they are updating on Blackberries and an iPhone throughout the tour.

What a fantastic opportunity ER...I'm so envious.

That's an assignment of a lifetime!

Safe travels and come back and share it all with us.

Try to make it to Vimy Ridge and take the tour. It's a very moving experience.

Hey all:

Won't be in Vimy regretfully as our media group stays in Holland the entire time. Look for coverage from Mike Strobel of the Toronto Sun as he is in Vimy prior to arriving in the Netherlands Monday or Tuesday.
