We arrived in Brugge from Brussels with a tour bus our first sight was a massive bus park for 120 buses. Oh horror of horrors what had we done? Before alighting we were informed in seven languages by the guide that this was where we should go to the toilet. Well hey I don't need to be told when to go or waste time waiting for too many people to do what they are told or have to put up with the ice cream seller and her attention seeking hooter. After a quick word with our nice guide we were off on our own private walk through lovely Brugge. I'm glad we did leave our fellow tourists behind we had a lovely stroll over the little bridge taking time to really enjoy the sunshine reflecting beautifully of the quiet canal, spotting the green hues in some trapped water on our own with only the swans for company. Ah solitude is good for the soul .
