singing in the rain … in bruges

…. wet, damp … friendly and beautiful!!!!

Maybe not at it’s most welcoming mood, but we still toke it on today and we were not alone.

After a frist evening with great atompshere with mussels, white wine and crème brûlée. And today we woke up to a very wet Bruges around 10am. Yes, just as  the Royal Meteorological Institute of Belgium had promised us. 

But around noon we took Bruges on, come what may … and we returned back to our apartment soaking wet about 4 hours later.

We got a good walk, we manage to enjoy Cécémel while taking shelter from the heavest rain … very yummy, a good Belgium suggesting of warm the hot chocolate made with Kwatta cocoa. Mine was topped with Amaretto.  

On the way back home back to the apartment we stopped at the GODIVA shop at the Market Square (Markt) and bought a corn filled with chocolate dipped fresh strawberries to spoil our afternoon with.

It’s nice to be back in Bruges, even it’s very wet … one of my favorite places and when I lived in Dover I visit so often I got a chance. A Fairytale city where … the evenings ends very early around 10.30pm.

Maybe we haven’t been dancing in the rain today … but we have been singing.

They have promised sunshine with some a showers for tomorrow … and that we can live with too.

“Do not be angry with the rain;
it simply does not know how to fall upwards.”

    • Jesper, that make me a bit sad to read … you could have stayed over night in Burges- it had been worth the travel. I really hope you will get anohter chance. Only 2,5 hour by train from Hasselt. Thank you so much for the kind comment and the visit. Means a lot to me.

      • 40 hours drive …. I would had put Bruges on hold too. We flew to Brussel and then direct train to Brugge from the airport. Flew BrusselAir – 900SEK per person with luggage and pre-booked seats inclued.

    • Yes, Burges is lovely … walking back from our great dinner .. no rain and no wind … more or less only the city and us. Thank you so much, I’m sure I will have a birthday. It’s all up to what I want out of it. *smile

  1. Lovely to know you are there and singing, darlin 🙂 🙂 Well, you will be sleeping now. It’s been a long day for me and getting longer! Girl’s Night tonight but now I’m waiting to watch Rafa. That boat with the pink umbrellas is great. Of course, even better if umbrellas aren’t needed. Wishing you sunshine for tomorrow.

    • Good Morning, the sun is out now … arrived a couple of minutes ago. So it looks like we are an okay day today. Just heard the news that Rafa is in finale …. great news. Congratulation. Looking at EuroNews.
      Have a day of rest today. I wish you both a lovely weekend. SunshineHug …

    • They were very yummy …. just we needed after all the rain and the sun is showing it’s face just now. Time for taking on Bruges. Have a pleasant weekend, Dia.
