Been a bit quiet on here recently, due to moving house. But now I've set my computer back up I can post a few more things.
On clearing out my camera card I forgot about a trip to Seven Sisters park. Nestled between Seaford and Eastbourne, its a great place to have a stroll around. Follow the rivers along the flood plane, carving between the valley sides, and eventually you end up at the sea,complete with white cliffs. Well worth a few quid parking in my humble opinion!
Brugge has to be the prettiest town I have ever visited, without a doubt.
Over the past few years we've been around the block quite a bit, to far flung places all over the world. Little did we know that Brugge was only 3hrs away on the Eurostar.
The little gothic town is like an espresso shot of coffee, tiny, but packs an almighty punch. As the crow flies you can walk from one side to another in 30 mins, but every corner you turn there is something waiting to be gawked at, my camera stayed stuck to my eye for hours.
You can spend days just loitering along the canals, bridges and alleyways, and I've never been to a town with so many gothic churches crammed into such a confined space.
Overall it's one to put on your bucket list. London to Brussels 2hrs, Brussels to Brugge 1hrs, why are you still here, go now.
A few photos from a long weekend in Belgium. We visited some family in Bruges, and on the way stopped at Brussels and Gent.
Belgium is a fascinating place, full of history at every turn of a corner. At some points I wasnt sure which way to look, with jaw dropping architecture littering every spare millimeter of lense space. Bring a spare memory card! Well worth a visit.
