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 stopped at Oostende so that Dave could visit the Atlantic Wall Museum. Here he had an excellent tour and audioguide, while I took Cassie for a long walk in a nature preserve adjacent to the …
... we found a restaurant open that maybe would let us use the phone. Lucky around the corner there was a Pizza Hut that was open (well sorta). We found out later they closed at 9pm. The ladies were kind enough not only to let us use the phone, but also speak to someone on the other side after I pathetically could not make the phone work. As the women hung up I swear she was going to tell me that it was after check in time and no one was going ...

... Dark (and cold) nights offered dramatic scenes in a memorable town. The evening skies made the silhouettes even more dramatic.

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.
