Ghent to Bruges, Belgium

In Ghent This morning the first thing we did was visit the Museum of Industry, Work and Textiles.

After checking out of our hotel we were walking toward the tour boat landing when we walked by an artisanal patisserie, Aix Meeveilleux de Fred. It was the kind of serendipitous discovery that creates the memories of a trip like this. They were making their own beautiful pastries as we watched. We shared a large warm chocolate chip bread bun with two cups of coffee. Oh my goodness it was heavenly!

Next we took a boat tour of Ghent. The ride gave us a beautiful perspective of Ghent’s old buildings and canals.

We walked to the train station and took the train to Bruges.

tonight we had a wonderful dinner at De Twijfelaar in Bruges. We are staying at Saint-Sauveur Bruges B&B. We have a lovely big attic room with a nice view.
