... with bright, fresh fruit and veg being sold left, right and centre. We bought up some supplies for a tasty, healthy lunch and made our way back to the banks of the canal to enjoy some freshly made sandwiches. After a short siesta we ventured out again this time to the Markt to climb the famous Bruges Belfort. Over 300 steps give you a very good 360 degree view over Bruges and the surrounding countryside. While we were up there the ...
