    Three countries in one day

    May 11, 2017 in Belgium ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    The sun shone as we left home at 07.30 it was still shining when we returned to get a rug for Mandy at 07.40. The traffic was heavy and noisy and the weather stayed bright and quite cold all the way to Dover where we met a couple of other MG's making their way to the Ardennes.
    We are now in northern Belgium at a town called Roeselare which is about 65 miles from Dunkirk. The Hotel ter Zuidhoek is nice and we arrived about ten minutes before the heavens opened. We were so lucky as we had the roof down and sunshine for the whole journey.
    The car never missed a beat and did 171 miles on 35 liters and about 200 miles total today.

    Okay, location check! ✔
    Next big thing on the list... FOOD!!! 🍽
    So many choices... buffet, tapas, à la carte, fingerfood, cold, hot, etc.. etc..
    The choices are endless... the prices... well yeah. Like the Belgian expression says "let's bite through a sour apple" it's gonna hurt a bit but you only marry once (when you do it right lol).

    I am so so happy we found the perfect combination between good food, cool concept, affordable price, good service and delicious taste for everyone.
    Yesterday I had an appointment with Johan Spriet & Vanessa and we found the perfect formule for our wedding. YEAH, foodtruck it is!!! 😁

    Bruges - day 33

    May 14, 2019 in Belgium ⋅ 🌙 10 °C

    What a lovely day it was to wake up to. Rather cool with a slight frost, but beautiful clear skies. We got up earlish, did our dishes and had wonderful hot showers. The last 2 nights have been a bit grim as the showers have been luke warm which has been surprising as most are pretty good. But this morning it was bliss! We were on the road by 9, but got distracted on the way out by a supermarket. Got a lovely watermelon and more berries. Oh, and the bread here is amazing, so I got a bread roll and Jody had a pastry. We thought the road around Brussels might be a nightmare as we hadn’t heard good things, but it wasn’t too bad. So after about 2 hours we found ourselves in Ghent. This was a place that I had wanted to visit, but there were no campsites in town, so we would have had to park up out of town. So we decided just to drive through the middle. So that went pretty well, by golly there are a lot of wonderful buildings which Jody tried to take pics of while we were driving. There were a lot of tram lines, and it is always confusing as to what the road rules are around trams. We followed one for a while – another car was in front of us so we thought it was fine. Hmmm nek minit we are driving on the grass between the tram tracks, oops this one might only be for trams. That was confirmed by the tram driving towards us with the driver shaking his finger at us. So our options then were limited to reversing a long way, going the wrong way up a busy one way street, trying to get over a couple of kerbs to a road, or going straight ahead on the tram track and hoping we would fit through the 2 bollards at the end. Option 4 was for us, and thankfully we made it through. I really need to be a bit more onto it with my videoing. Yes this is a bit stressful for me as the driver, but I think it stresses Jody out more and her reactions to these situations are just so funny that it just makes me laugh and take it in my stride. We haven’t had a funny Nico story for a few days, I have been missing them!

    So then it was onto Bruge (Brougha). We got there around 2pm on a stunning day though it was still only around 16 degrees. Our washing had been in the garage for 3 days, so it was nice to finally get that dried as well as doing a couple more loads. We won’t be doing anymore for a while so great to have a fine day. We then mucked around for a while just relaxing, and I started organising my packing. Around 7pm we finally got sorted to bike into the City. This is about 3kms away, and was really pretty. There are lots of waterways, and a big river with locks for the boats to go through, and bridges that go up to let boats through as well as turning in a circle to open up with the boats. Quite fascinating to watch. There were many big squares with churches. We ate dinner in one of those – Flemish stew which was wonderful and tender, and came with hot chips – weird! Then we biked back to Nico – it is getting dark just after 9pm which is great. Then another game of 500 – we must replace the cards as they got pretty sticky with limoncello! Tomorrow we will spend the day just cruising around Bruges for our last day on this side of the channel.
