Day 5 Brugge – Wandering Around The City (Daytime)

I arrived in Bruges and made my way to my hotel. It was in an amazing location and the view was great, but I should have listened to the reviews, as it wasn’t very clean or comfortable. My room was the single dormer window on the white building. Never-mind, it was too late, so I went exploring!
I saw lots of sights including:
• Canals and bridges

I leaned out the window of my hotel room to take a last photo of the Eiffel Tower.

I then headed to Gare du Nord, and got there super early. This meant I had a lot of time to wait for my train, so I wandered around the area.

I checked the platform of my train, then found the platform and my carriage. I took a Thalys train to Brussels Midi.

I settled into my seat and enjoyed the view out the window.

And then arrived at Brussels Midi to change trains to Brugges.

Day 4 Épernay – Wandering The Town Part 2

After my caves tour, I decided I better walk off the alcohol, as I felt rather drunk!

I wandered around the town until I came to the centre and found somewhere for dinner.

As I ate I watched the sunset, and decided to head out and take some photos of the sky and make my way back to the station.

It was then time to get on the train and head back to Paris for my last night before heading to Belgium.
