We spent the day walking, both the city centre and further afield. We took a canal boat ride because, based on the line ups we saw yesterday, it is THE thing to do here. We taste tested some of the sweet treats that the chocolate shops sell, beside the usual chocolate.
But the highlight of the day was certainly when we ventured out into the environs
Well, we've certainly covered Brugge in the past three days. There isn't anything we haven't at least seen, even if there's some things we chose NOT to do...like climb the 366 steps to the top of the Belfort bell tower. Hey, I got my steps in according to my FitBit, with a few thousand to spare!! But we did hang around to listen to the nice music played by the bells every hour. Have a listen.
Tomorrow will be an early start, but thanks to our close proximity to the train station, it won't need to be too early a start. It's about a 3 minute suitcase drag from the hotel into the front doors of the train station. Easy, peasy!! Looking forward to the relaxing train trip to Brussels, and then the high speed train to Paris.
No stone unturned
