Veurne – Bruges
Had a good night’s sleep, headed off into town to find breakfast and coffee, managed to find croissants no such luck with the coffee. Drove some of the coast road on our way to Bruges, but was very busy and built up so we decided to get on the motorway and head straight over to Bruges.
Parked up in the Bruges Aire, a bit expensive and basic but 5 minute walk into the old town, so great location. Turned out the we had arrived on Ascension day, which meant many of the shops were closed and lots of the streets blocked off with rows of chairs. The main square was full of grandstands, which sort of took away from the beauty of it, especially as it was our first visit here. The parade itself was quite spectacular, with many different floats depicting scenes from the bible. We had dinner in a quirky little cellar restaurant. Flemish stew was amazing.
