    ... the receptionist closing up the lobby. I approached him and apologized for arriving at such a late hour, but wondered if I could still check in. When he said yes, I could've picked him up in a bear hug. It was so nice for something to go according to plan. He gave me my key and told me of a few pubs nearby if I wanted to go out tonight. I just stood there and looked up at him through my swollen, tired eyes with the same baffled expression as the hotel receptionist. I think he got the ...

    ... our barge. Our accommodation is basic but clean and the crew and our guide seem to be very good.

    After arriving at the Bruges train station, we were picked up shortly after that by our AirBnB host, Kurt. We really appreciated the pick-up and not having to worry about trying ...
