Wow, what a day? If I don’t publish this post tonight am not sure I’ll sleep. I am so tired, so fulfilled, a little morose, excited and what again. Ok straight to the story. I didn’t even know Bruges meant Egg in Flemish. I mean that place or rather the trip itself made feel eggly 🙂
I had received 2 return 1st class tickets from the Belgian Railway Corp for my Birthday last month. Well, I was going through and facing stuffs and so using those tickets wasn’t even on the list. They were to be used before the 28th so it said, and so when I realized I really needed to give myself a TREAT, I knew it was this weekend or none. Also, being “whoopingly single”, meant that it will be the first time in I can’t even remember the last time, I was treating just me and me alone this way. It had always been either with parents as a kid, friends, ex hussy, my own kids, and so on.
I slept just 4.30 hours Friday night probably anticipating the TREAT. Oh my, it was wonderful. Apart from treating myself to frozen yoghurt and a waffle (I haven’t had frozen yoghurt since I came here) , I didn’t stop any other second to eat or drink whatsoever.
I went on a guided tour via the canals, in a canoe (another first time)
and then stopped in a café to have coffee. It was there I met a man ( a senior citizen I must add). He had been drinking his beer quietly until I enterred. Bam he saw me and came all over me like a good flu. No matter how many times I told him my name was Maria, he called me Juliana. He offered me Bruge Beer (called Triple BB) and said to take it along as Souvenia (his words).
Here are a few more pics, I am so tired but I have to go tomorrow to Antwerp so as not to loose the other return ticket. I thought it was meant for who accompanied me, but I was told it didn’t matter if I accompanied myself sort of.
Indeed when we have the opportunity to TREAT ourselves great, lets do it with Bliss. We really have but ourselves to face in the end. I thank all those who wished me a pleasant trip, indeed it was one… à suivre
