We have returned home now, but as I am now over 60, it takes me a little while to get things done. That's my excuse anyway.
So here is our Belgium experience !
We boarded the Eurostar in Paris for our 2 hour journey through Brussels into Bruges. Bruges is in the north of the country near Oostend on the coast and is truly delightful. We stayed in the historical centre and it reminded us of Venice, just smaller ...

I'm coming to a whole new appreciation for Lorne's medieval street navigation skills. Lonely Planet book open in one hand, I squint up at the small "straase" signs, perched high on the sides of bulidings.

The first leg of this trip, from Amsterdam to Bruges (Belgium) also includes stops in Flanders Fields(Ypres) and Kinderdijk (windmills). Dad has really been looking forward to this part of the trip, as Bruges has been on his Bucket List for a while now.

We were so tired and freezing cold at that point we walked to the train station and headed home. We may or may not go somewhere tomorrow, on Sunday but that's what's been happening so far.
