Art and beer

A travel blog entry by howardstein

Today we had a short breakfast at a lovely tea room close to our hotel. The hotel has a buffet at a mere $40CAD per person which seems high as we can not stomach more than a light meal after last night's Flemish stew. We are still stuffed. Today we walked the rest of Bruges. We visited the church where there is a drop of Jesus's blood in a rock crystal on some gauze used to wipe the wounds long long ago. According to legend, every Friday for two centuries after it ...

... Everyone we met wa amazing and friendly and we soon found ourselves traveling in a group of about 6, having arrived and left on the same days. What a fantastic little town! Wish we could've spent a week! Had mostly rainy weather, but we were able to brave the pouring rain and chilly wind in favour of new churches to discover and new chocolate flavours to try. Saw sugar being hand-spun, tried a variety of chocolates (everything from 'Bollywood' to 'bacon' to 'cab sauv', etc. just ...
