In Bruges

Thank you so much for all your kind anniversary wishes.
We went away for a few days to celebrate in the beautiful city of Bruges.
 
 
We had three days of sunshine to wander around the ancient cobbled streets along canals and to soak up the wonderful atmosphere.

 
We did all the tourist stuff including climbing the 366 steps to the top of the Belfry...

 
Where the view was stunning.

 
We ate chocolate, frites and waffles (not all at once)... and even sampled a beer or two

 
It was our first holiday together in over two years and it was very much appreciated. After getting off the Eurostar last night, we rounded it off with a glass of champagne at St Pancras station before getting the train back home.

 
Cheers!

  4. Bruges looks beautiful and I'm so glad the weather was kind to you. How things have changed - it's years since I went to London and I had no idea you could sup champagne in St.Pancras station. Very romantic.
