... shrapnel in a farmers field next to hill. After touring the museum we had dinner in a fantastic Belgian restaurant - I had a Flemish stew that was amazing and Josh had steak and oysters. We finished out the day taking in the ceremony at Menin Gate. Josh and the SFDCI students had an opportunity to take part in the ceremony. The students laid a wreath in honour of the fallen. Unfortunately, I couldn't see a ...
... lost. That is the entire population of Hamilton, Ontario. It is mind boggling to our generation to understand. When you look at the graves and you see the ages of 18, 19, 22 and so on, you think that these brave young men didn't even have time to love or marry or start a family. Some of the graves had hand written notes from relatives that have visited. It was very touching.
In closing all we can say is thank you to these men for allowing us the freedom we have ...
... about the Committee of the Regions, eurozone, and bailing Greece out of its economic crisis. We learned about the evolution of the EU as well as how it currently functions from people who work to keep it going everyday! After our time there, we spent the evening indulging in Belgian delicacies such as waffles, cherry beer, mussels with french fries, and plenty of chocolate!
The next morning, we had the day free so four friends and I ...
... We enjoyed the refreshment and we off to find the horse and buggy ride around the city. After a loo stop, we had a great trip around the city in the horse drawn buggy - it was fun and loved the sound of the hooves on the cobblestones. Had the camera running lots of the time.

Moved on then to the Choco-Story museum, a place dedicated to telling the story of the cocoa bean, how it came to Belgium, different uses for cocoa, and how the bitter little bugger turns into Belgian pralines.

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.
