Day 29 - Brugge

overcast 0 °C

There is still a lot of snow hanging around today. Our plan was to sample some chocolates from some of the many chocolate shops in order to find the best one to buy gifts from.

We had a slow start after breakfast and headed out at about 10:30 to begin our mission. We started with the store that is closest to our hotel and it was fantastic!!! Yum!!! After walking around a little (and not actually trying any more chocolates) we found a bar called Cambrinus that Ed wanted to try.

This bar advertises itself as having 400 beers. Ed was once again in is element. He started with a tasting board and then had two more beers after that. Lunch was fantastic as well and we have said that we will return again tomorrow for lunch.

After spending a few hours at Cambrinus we headed out again on our search for chocolate. Went into a chocolate store that we said we would not buy from because they had big chocolate boobs and penis' in the window, however they also had chocolate puppies that my English cousin will love. Once inside the man behind the counter was lovely and very helpful. He wrapped my puppy purchase beatifully and the two smaller chocolates that we sampled were also very good.

We decided to go back to the chocolate shop near our hotel and stocked up with lots of chocolates for gifts before heading back to our hotel for a lazy afternoon. Ed had quite a few beers that he bought at the 'beer wall' the other day sitting on the ledge outside our window getting cold so he needs to get drinking before we leave tomorrow.

LATER THAT DAY:
We have just gotten back from dinner at a little restaurant around the corner (cheap quick food) and it is snowing!! Like, really snowing! In about an hour there is quite a thick layer on everything! We walked to the Markt after eating so that we could have a little play and take some photographs. We made a mini snowman! I love snow! I can imagine that it wouldn't be quite so amazing having to go about your everyday life in snow but for me it is awesome!

We are however starting to worry about our travel plans for the next couple of days. If this snow keeps up overnight it could make it difficult to walk to the train station with all of our gear tomorrow. We are also concerned about travelling around the UK if they are also getting snow. I'm sure it will be ok though because life goes on when it snows in these parts of the world!
