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.

This is it, trip finally past the start line. Started in traditional fashion with a hangover & a Fat Boys breakfast. Not a lot to say about the ride down to Folkstone to catch the 11.50 train apart from I made it on time so no hanging around required. Checked in and straight onto the train, crossing as smooth as normal.
Left Calais with 120 miles to do to Brussels, turned motorways off on the Satnav so ETA 3 hours, that gave me the first ...
