July 29th-August 1st – In Bruges
It wasn't all wonderful though – as ever, the weather was grey and miserable (what happened to the summer this year?); we had to share the sights with way too many other tourists; and it was pretty expensive. But, this is just minor quibbling – a city which can boast masterpieces by Van Eyk, Van der Weyden and Memling by the bucketful; a sculpture by Michelangelo; countless stunning churches; atmospheric canals; and even a visiting Morris Dancing troupe from Spalding Lincolnshire, was almost too much for the eyes to take in.
A great place to end our trip, after another memorable summer in the campervan (although next year, I think we may head further South!).
