Bruges Day 1
Up before dawn. Graham opened some birthday presents and we grabbed some croissants for the journey. Caught the 6.02 train to London. After about 5 minutes Graham spilled orange juice on the heater - there was a substantial amount of smoke, and the smell of burnt oranges filled the carriage for the rest of the journey. Good start.
Had enough time at St Pancras for a granola yoghurt and a large coffee, then we were off. Arrived in a gloriously sunny Bruges at about 1.30. Had a quick picnic in the square, then found our hotel and checked in.
Went for a long wander. Stopped to ogle at every chocolate shop. Laughed at the word slagroom. Saw some ridiculously beautiful bikes. Had dinner, another walk, then back to the hotel for a lovely early night.
