Belgium – Day 5

We’ve been extremely lucky with the weather, or so the locals have been telling us.  Apparently their summer in 2012 was a washout.    We woke up to another fabulous morning and after a quick trip to the baker’s, had breakfast on our terrace.

DSC03516We parked the car on the ring road and walked into Brugge.   Hubby and I were here for a weekend a few years ago and it felt good to be back, this time, with the bear.    Brugge is a Unesco World Heritage site and its sights are truly remarkable.   People are friendly, cyclists make their way around the city with amazing confidence – one would hope that cyclists and motorists will be able to safely share roads in London someday.


There are many squares and canals – it did remind me of another favourite city, Amsterdam.

We did spot an old bomb close to the baker we went to this morning.
