... train covered exactly the same distance, took exactly the same time except it choose a different route. In order to get to Bruge we had to catch a train from liege gullimens at 2.01 pm, and our train was scheduled to reach at 1.53, which it did precisely on time.

Our final visit was to the EU Parliamentarium. Since the European Union has a government headquarters in Brussels we thought it would be a good idea to learn something about this influential governing body. Learning about a parliament sounds like it might be a bit dry, but it is a well crafted multi-media exhibit which takes you through the events of the 20th century ...
