    Brugge: Beer, waffles and chocolate!

    September 15, 2016 in Belgium ⋅ ☀️ 75 °F

    What more could anyone want from a city that has the best beer, waffles and chocolate?! This was our second visit to Brugge and it was just as great as we remembered. We love this city not only for its food and drink but also because of its quaint feel and charming character. We'd highly recommend a visit or next time we plan to go back we'll let you know!Read more

    2. Tag: Einmal Brügge sehen und....?

    April 19 in Belgium ⋅ ☀️ 14 °C

    Heute waren wir mit dem Bus vom Camping nach Brügge gefahren. Abfahrt war um 9.30 Uhr bei wundervollem Wetter; Fahrzeit nach Brügge waren ca. 45 Minuten.
    Es war eine prima Entscheidung, Karli stehen zu lassen und mit dem ÖPNV zu fahren - sollten wir nach Möglichkeit zukünftig auch so machen.
    Brügge ist durch und durch eine wundervolle Stadt mit bezaubernden Gässchen, Plätzen und Brücken -durchzogen von Grachten und Kanälen.
    Wirklich bemerkenswert ist, dass in der ganzen Stadt ein harmonisches Stadtbild herrscht und man wirklich keine Bausünden sieht.
    Die Stadt wurde in allen Kriegen nicht zerstört, da sie wirtschaftlich zu dieser Zeit absolut uninteressant war.
    Daher sind fast alle Gebäude 200-300 Jahre alt und wirklich in einem Top-Zustand 👌
    Man kommt sich durch die Kanäle vor wie in Klein-Venedig, da alle paar Minuten ein Boot mit Touristen an einem vorbei fährt.
    Apropos Touristen: die Stadt wimmelt nur so von Touristen; man hatte das Gefühl dass heute halb Spanien und große Teile des asiatischen Kontinents Freigang hatten.
    An jeder Ecke waren geführte spanische und asiatische Touristengruppen 🙄
    Und es war unglaublich, wieviel Aufmerksamkeit unser 🐶 wieder auf sich gezogen hat!

    Unser erster Zwischenstopp war in einer sehr urigen Brauerei. Wir saßen auf der Terrasse direkt am Kanal und genossen in der herrlichen Mittagssonne ein paar 🍺 - selbst Anja trank Bier mit Kirsch- und Erdbeergeschmack 🤪.
    Eigentlich hätten wir dort den Rest des Tages ausklingen lassen können...wir konnten uns aber gerade nochmal motivieren, weiter zu gehen.
    So haben wir noch unzählige weitere tolle Gassen und Plätze entdeckt und in einer bekannten Chocolaterie einige Pralinen genießen können.
    Zum Abschluss noch ein kleines 🍺 an der Promenade und dann ging´ s wieder mit dem Bus zum Camping.
    Hier konnten wir uns dann endlich offiziell anmelden und entschieden uns dafür, weiterhin auf der großen Wiese zu bleiben.
    Als Abschluss noch ein Fläschchen Terrassenwein, einen guten Film und husch husch ins Bettchen😴

    If it's Thursday, this Must be Belgium!

    September 13, 2018 in Belgium ⋅ ⛅ 61 °F

    We are in Belgium for just two nights, so we explored Bruges today. It is a very picturesque city with canals, medieval buildings, and churches with tall spires. Much of the city is a UNESCO World Heritage site.

    We took a 30 minute canal trip for a different perspective of the city. One can see how goods were moved about by boats, as the winding, narrow streets would have made it difficult. In fact, people are encouraged to park outside the city ring and take the bus. Even walking has its dangers as bicycles have right of way and they really pedal fast on those cobbled streets!Read more

    And we're off!!

    April 1 in Belgium ⋅ ☀️ 9 °C

    A quick pit stop before we sail across the channel.

    So after 3 hours of ‘when will we be at Pat’s house?’, we arrive in Broadstairs for an overnight stop with Sarah’s Aunty, Uncle and a quick hello to a cousin then down to Deal for a quick hello to other Aunty, cousins and new baby cousin, Willow...and then it’s straight onto the ferry at Dover, bound for Calais.

    Smooth sailing, kids enjoy the luxurious sofa beds aboard, and we hit the road again to make it to Brugge for dinner.

    Find a great place to stay a few mins from the city, figure out (just) how to add water to the Moho, a quick dinner (pre made spag bol from home) and then hop on the bikes to see Brugges by night. Try to order a German beer, barman looks confused and suggests a Belgian choice, Amelia lucks out with a deluxe ice cream bowl, complete with edible flowers!

    The city is as beautiful as Sarah remembers, the buildings, houses and little canal streets are so unique, we love that everyone seems to bike everywhere and it feels so relaxed. First night out of England is a success...

    Bruges Architecture

    September 13, 2018 in Belgium ⋅ ⛅ 64 °F

    This is Burg Square, which has a varied mix of buildings. The Gothic town hall was built in the 1300s. The building to the left of it is the former court house, and to the right of the town hall is the Basilica of the Holy Blood.

    All over town are beautiful buildings--shown are some of the best we saw, and the McDonald's!Read more

    Bruges, Belgium

    January 7, 2018 in Belgium ⋅ ⛅ 2 °C

    We drove to Bruges from Luxembourg with Monica and Rory. Judith, our old flatmate from New Zealand, met us here from Holland. We spent the evening sampling Bruges' greatest export, beer! We visited several local pubs, each with a sizable beer variety, and stayed out until the early hours of the morning dancing to live music. We left Bruges with a few bottles of Westvleteren 12; 10.2%, brewed since 1940, and considered one of the best beers in the world. Sante!Read more

    What Dean Learned About Beer

    September 13, 2018 in Belgium ⋅ ⛅ 63 °F

    Dean went to the Beer Museum and learned a lot. In Medieval times, everyone drank beer, because there was no safe water and well technology hadn't developed. Back in the 1200s, local monks perfected the beer-making process to help improve public health. The same mash was made into beer three times, with the first run being 3-8% alcohol, the second, 2%, and the third, 1/2 % (used for children). Beer was so important that the town officials imposed a tax on it; the brewers dumped all their beer in the streets to protest. The population threatened to hang the officials, so they rescinded the tax.

    While Dean was busy with the history and tasting of beer, I walked around the city and saw a lady making lace. Belgian lace is famous!

    Church of Our Lady

    September 13, 2018 in Belgium ⋅ ☀️ 63 °F

    This tower is even taller than the Belfry in the Markt.

    We saw a flyer about a free "Harps of the World" concert that was supposed to be in the church, but we found it in a nearby museum. We were amazed with the different harps this man owns and plays, and their different sounds. He built the two that are pictured here.Read more
