Brugge, Belgium – 08/20/2007 – 08/21/2007

The Eurostar train rocks! I had a table and two seats to myself. Along with a power connection for my laptop. Too bad they didn’t have internet access. The whole trip from London to Brugge only took 3.5 hours. The same amount of time it would have been consumed by fly, but with out the hassle of checking luggage and immigration, and other typical crap that comes with flying…

More photos…

Belgium is know for it’s beer, chocolate, and good food. Well I can attest to the good beer and chocolate, for example Staminee de Garre brews it’s own Tripel and it’s SOLID. From what I have seen the food does look good, but I have been sticking to cheaper fair just because Brugge seems to be a bit of a tourist town which makes the food a bit over priced. But how can one go wrong with sausage, frijts and a tripel.

Brugge is a cute little town and it seems to be a day trip from most of the visitors. So at night this place is rather quiet, but that can also be due to me being here on Monday and Tuesday. It’s been a nice change from the busyness of London and NY…

The hostel is more like what I was expecting when it comes to hostels. I am in a room with 5 guys who are about 20 and are having a dinner of cookies and soda. NICE! Then came the shower, it was a freaking mess. Good thing for flip-flops! I hope the rest of them are more like the one in London.

Here are some more photos I have snapped over the past couple of days. Off to Brussels tomorrow.

  1. Staminee de Garre is a little slice of heaven. Bring on the cheese cubes and lambic!

    When you return to London we’ll go for some proper Indian food. In the meantime, keep your flip flops on.

    By the way, what is the deal with Twitter? and why do you sometimes post there?

  2. Dude, Twitter is the new black. Well maybe it’s more of a shade of dark gray now…

    Anyway, It allows people to keep in the know of everything one is doing.

    So for an example if you were following me on Twitter, I would send them an SMS/Txt message saying:

    “I’m currently taking a crap!”

    And then that message would be relayed to you, either to you Mobile or Email depending on how you have your settings.

    So it’s a quick way to say, hey check this out about me, without the need to do the whole blogging dealio…

    Typically you sign up enjoy the messages for, ooh 2 hours, and then you turn the notification off for everyone… Because it can become rather annoying…

    That’s it in a nutshell…

  3. Eurostar rulez! Last week it reached London from Paris in Record Time.
