Yeah I know, but my hands are tied at the moment, I was going to do ‘Bars in Bruges’ but didn’t think the server would be able to cope with that, and they were just the ones I went into!
So just a mixture today, here is one tourist attraction most people like, although he can be a bit noisy at times.
The Belfry tower is no less than 83 metres high, that is 366 steps! Your athletic efforts will be rewarded with a breath-taking view of Bruges and its surrounding countryside.
Although the safety grills on the windows are not designed with large lens cameras in mind.
Still in Bruges, but this time with doors, I don’t know what it is about doors but they tend to capture my eye a lot, saying that, the doors are normally the entrance to a pub. However the next few doors are not leading into any bars, and the first two I would definitely not like to exit when leaving a bar.
Have a great weekend.
And there are a lot of them, which of course makes this such a wonderful city to walk around, you are never short of a great view and without the bridges you would get wet feet.
I’m not going to go on about Bruges, you can check it out here it is a beautiful city, easy to get to from London via Eurostar and only take a couple of hours, plenty of Lace for the ladies and Beer for the boys.
This is the oldest bridge in Bruges according to our tour guide, however if you do a search you will get others saying it’s a different bridge.
This is another old bridge in Bruges.
I’ll start today with some very sad news, Another Super Puma Helicopter ditched in the North Sea on Friday with 18 people onboard, 4 people were killed, the rest were rescued, my thoughts go out to all those involved, I was on a Super Puma myself last Monday, and I did not enjoy it one minute. There is a Face Book page Here which speaks for itself, if you have time please check it out and if you agree please like it.
Anyway, here are a few shots from Bruges taken at a happier time.
Which ever way you spell it, it is still a very beautiful city, I’ve just got back from work again, this time sailing around the Solent just off the South coast of England, not a very exciting job but someone has to do.
At the beginning of this month the wife and I jumped on Eurostar and two hours later we were having coffee in the main square of Bruges, great journey, very easy and no stress, a bit like going to work for me.
Great city to walk around, lots of bars and restaurants, museums and shops, this was our favourite restaurant, just off the Fish Market in Tanners Square, great food and people, the garlic prawns are to die for, but if you are having a romantic weekend make sure you both have them, they are quite overpowering.
And while in the Fish Market, check out one of the oldest bridges in Bruges, my wife brought me a very nice water colour of it from a stall in the market.
