At long last, my dear little bro arrived in London and I promptly whisked him away to a weekend in Belgium on the Eurostar. We have both long been fans of mussels, chips with mayonnaise, Belgian beer and Belgian chocolate, and we weren’t disappointed on our visit here.
Bruges is very touristy, and it’s no surprise why when you see the beautiful medieval architecture and cobblestoned streets. It didn’t take us long to find a decent-looking place that served mussels, and that set the tone for the weekend – mass feasting!
We took time out to do some exercise though, and our hotel had complimentary bicycle hire for its guests. It seems like a romantic idea – cycling through cobblestoned streets – but in actual fact, the whole ordeal is just quite painful. All that bouncing around on bikes without any suspension or seat padding results in a very sore arse!
