Beer and masks….

Apologies for another late blog……..

We returned home on 15th January but squeezed in a little touristy stuff just before we left.

Since we have been rather enjoying the Belgian beers, we decided to make things a little cultural be visiting the Bourgogne de Flandres micro brewery in the centre of town. They only produce 1000 bottles a day but obviously hosts lots of tourist visits – all the staff are geared up for both beer production and tourist ‘education’!

The logo for the beer is a representation of the cathedral which you can see from the brewery! And no brewery visit would be complete without a tasting! Bourgogne de Flandres has become our favourite beer!

Always amazed to see the tourist boats literally careering around the waterways of Bruges!

 

The other event that we saw was the visiting Venetian masked procession, pure spectacle!

I enjoy spending time with family and friends; boating; and travelling – especially France! So, in 2009, I linked all these things together and shipped my boat, Misty Morning, to France. I spend as much time as possible cruising the French inland waterways. I have lots of fun, some adventures and have met some great people along the way…. I now have a new partner, Adrian, and we have a new boat together. The story continues on Piedaleau ……..
