Belgium - what's not to like ?
We travelled by train to Brussels from St Pancras in London in less than two hours - Channel Tunnel - Tick - and Bruges, where these pics were taken was just an hour further on...
Sadly, we missed Percy
Three hundred and-a-lot steps to the top
Three-litre beer glass for the very brave
We settled on "the finest beer in the world" - a lot of them claim that, don't they ?
but "Delerium Tremens" (8.5%) must be close
We weren't birding in Belgium, so more off-topic stuff from there later.
