holiday again

We had a lovely time in Bruges (Belgium).  Here is a little taste:

We had a lovely boat trip on the canals (and again in Ghent), did plenty of walking around sightseeing, finally got to see the art collection at the Groeninge Museum in Bruges, but did not climb the 366 steps to the top of the bell tower (that is the tower in the photo above)!

We had a nightmare journey back, however.  Eurostar had double booked our seats (and also those of several elderly people).  No seats on a 2 hour 20 minute journey that turned into a 2 hour 40 minute journey.  Train manager was nowhere to be found.  I have written to complain – will let you know if and when I hear anything back. 

I have my first antenatal class this morning and then we are off on holiday again.  This time we are going for a long weekend to a cottage on Exmoor, Somerset.  Weather forecast is foggy and damp, so it might be a lot of reading by the wood-burning stove!

  1. I love all the pictures!
    It is almost like you live in another world…..I have loved the pictures of all the old buildings.
    I am glad that ya’ll are getting to do some extra traveling before the baby comes.
    And did I understand that you stood for almost three hours on a train? Yes, I think someone needs to do some reimbursing the monies spent on your tickets.
    Enjoy your classes…..it will be all over before you know it.
    And a foggy day spent sitting by a stove reading sounds lovely. Enjoy the rest. It will be a vague memory for a few weeks after the baby is born. 🙂
    But it will be so worth it.

  2. Just checking in to see how you are doing.
    Wondering how big you are getting and if your maternity clothes are still fitting. 😉
    Make sure you are getting plenty of rest!
