Belgium, Holland, Jul '12

Sadly this part of our jaunt through Europe was poorly planned so only had a couple of days to have a very quick look at Belgium and Holland.

I have to say, had forgotten how pleasant it was here. Although also rather cold (well - compared to the Southern climbs we've become used to) and all too flat.

Next time will have to stay longer, but for now...

12:45

Sightseeing in Brugge. Kindof medieval 'Charlie & the Chocolate Factory' wink Those shops smell gooooood! grin

17:50

Dinner in Brugge. Mussels & chips, with Leffe & Duval, then waffle with chocolate sauce & ice cream. What else?! tongue

19:00

Almost surreal lighting in Brugge after dinner. Amazing!

05:45

Bit of early morning action in Brugge. Dare I say, might even have been out a little too early? Shocker! wink

11:30

Stopped by Brussels for lunch in on/off sunshine & showers. Never ate here when was local, but now as a tourist... wink

18:15

Pratiwi was so happy to find an Indonesian restaurant here in Vaals. Great food! The Dutch colonial connection helps.

09:30

Dutch priorities on the roads... correct! Sad not to have time for a spin here, but it is flat & was chilly!
