We started the day by taking the wrong train. It was going in the right direction but ended before Bruges and made many stops. We switched trains at the end of the route and made much better time. We were to Bruges by noon, checked into our hotel and eating lunch by 1pm. Figuring out the trains is one of the trickiest parts of traveling in Europe.

It was really fun albeit a little scary at times navigating around pedestrians, horses and buggies, cars and scooters. We got separated once from Nathalie, our guide, and one of the women crashed her bike! We rode all through the ...
