... paths were quite charming (other than trying to roll you suitcase over them - it which case it inspired creativity as we navigated the smoothest path to avoid our arms jostling out of their sockets). There are 12km of canals that weave through the town, which just add to the ambience. Locals tell us that Brugge is sometimes referred to as “little Venice of the North”.
We spent that ...
This morning we had a lovely breakfast at our B & B. Pauline, our hostess, provided us with muesli, Dutch bread and buns, apple strudel filling, strawberries and more. We left about ten for Bruges.
After parking at the rail station car park, we walked into the old town centre. Canals run through it and the buildings are old and quaint with some really impressive buildings. The church was massive. Lots of shops with ...
... through an estuary tunnel called the Westerschelde. We were surprised as there had been a ferry here for a long time and apparently this tunnel is fairly new. There were doors on the sides that were labeled exit--Becky wanted to know where one could exit as we are under a lot of sea water! Hmmm. Good point Becky but not one I want to consider--I didn't want to think that an arm of the North Sea is over my head as we travel.
But out we came into the province of Zeeland ...
... which is moving in itself, and in the usual way there is a hole in the wall containing a detailed of list of all those buried there and a visitor's book.

I met up with my high school friend Eugene who was out in Europe on business and we took to the town. It was good to have a familiar face in an unfamiliar land and if you know Eugene we were going to have fun! We walked all over the place and really enjoyed ourselves in Brussels Main ...

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.
