A few weekends ago myself, Si and a few friends jumped in the car and set off early for a day trip to Bruges...

Only an hour from Calais, we arrived slightly later than planned (thank you Euro Tunnel) but parked in the centre and spent the next hour or so discovering the beauty of Bruges

After browsing all the chocolate shops we sat down for an afternoon of people watching and beer drinking (although I had to opt out of that one) and watched the world go by.

After attempting a few snaps and a cheeky fast food burger purchase, it was time to make our way home.
We arrived home at 10pm with our bellies full and smiles on our faces and already planning the next road trip...

  2. I love Brugges, I think it is one of my favourite places in Europe. The mini cruises from Hull are quite fun to do. Great photos and looked like you had a great time.

  3. This looks like such a great way to spend a day! I'm just a little too far from the Eurostar to be able to do it, but if I lived closer I'd be all over this!
