We are traveling today. First by car to Lille, then by train to Bruges, Belgium.
Our challenge of the day was in returning the rent car. The train station is in the center of this very busy city and they are not allowed to post car return signs, so you have no idea where to go. Greg was ready for a “big” Belgium beer once we arrived !
We had a wonderful dinner at Huyze Die Maene on the city square. It was relaxing to sit outside and soak up the sights.
Our second day we chose to take it slow and enjoy the city. We started with Belgium waffles and coffee like I have never tasted before. Both were exquisite.
We wandered the streets & parks that line the inner city canals, looking at antique stores and chocolate shops along the way. By mid day we gave into the chocolates calling our names !
One of my highlights was taking a photo of the sweet old pooch that had a cameo role in the movie “In Brugge”. You will see him sitting at his window watching the world go by. He is the epitome of “a dogs life”.
