About traveling around, once you hop in a train, that is the life, going where the rails lead, listening to the cling-clang sound of the wheels, experiencing the whole vast countryside that you travel through. It’s a nice way to get to know a country. Knowing that the weather is going to be drippy and wet, we thought that heading out to the sea would be a smart thing to do, people always get wet at the sea. Bruges was also on our visit list so we bought the tickets to visit both Oostende and Bruges and it was worth it. Have to say that Oostende was one large building site, so might have to do that again in warmer weather and Bruges is such a nice place that it doesn’t need a reason to be on the visit anytime list.
