The ship sailed through the night to Ghent. In the morning, we took a bus ride to Bruges for a guided tour of the city. Because Bruges was not accessible by water, it was left intact from about 1500 to 1800 and looks much the same today (looks like something Disney created. We can sleep late tomorrow as we be sailing to our next ...

We got a bunch of groceries for dinner, and ended up going to three different supermarkets to get everything we needed! When ...

We did venture out to the Atomium, after we discovered that the #2 on the map signified the metro station to get to it from, rather than the actual thing itself. Caits money had gone through and we had enough to afford a trip inside the big ball sculpture! Weird but worth it, if just for the many escalator rides! (we call them magic stairs at train ...
