The Belgian beer wall in Bruges

semi-overcast 16 °C

Whew! After a whirlwind start it's time to slow things down a bit ... by driving to another country and visiting three cities in as many days! That's right - we cram ourselves into a mini-van and head north to Belgium.

First stop is the historic town of Bruges. Bruges is renowned for it's medieval architecture and Belfort, the precarious ascent of which was made famous in this scene from the movie "In Bruges".

Keen to try the local fare, though not much of a drinker, Evelyn seems almost overwhelmed by this vat of lager she's been served...

Speaking of Belgian beers, all 780 of them are on display at the beer wall (a portion of which is shown below):

(If there's enough reader interest I'll post the other eight snaps of the wall. Hell, I might even stitch them together to form a sort of beer panorama...)

After a liesurely river cruise it's time to head east to Antwerpen.
