Day two of the trip started with a maiden voyage on Eurostar. Before leaving Shelley saw her old friend Tamara Ecclestone, who was catching a Eurostar for the south of France. Despite collecting the billionairesse's new mobile number, Shelley failed to ask for any Euros to aid our trip, which put me in a bad mood.

Our next stop would be our favorite city of Brugge, Belgium, so we took the sea route up to Dunkerque and across to Middelkerke and Oosteende on the way.

... We met a couple from Texas and lunched with them at the brewery. We spent some time wandering the little alleyways and backstreets to see the less touristy parts of this beautiful old city. Dinner near the town center consisted of Belgian shrimp croquettes, Belgian steak, rack of lamb, a French merlot, and coffee with a waffle with ice cream and strawberries. Lovely lovely lovely, and a fine farewell dinner for both. Tomorrow we head for Flanders and WW 1 ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsJacobs Hotel Brugge
We parked, left the car, and walked into the center in about 15 minutes. The fellow at the desk was exceptionally friendly. The room was a good size with a big bathroom.(no shower though) Breakfast in the morning was basic and good. Our only problem was that the internet service advertised was not available. As we keep in daily touch with an aging relative, this bothered me somewhat. Overall though, I would recommend this hotel to anyone, and would stay here again myself.
