5th Apr 2010 - Belgium
Our last day in Belgium. Had talked the day before about whether we would leave early and spend the day in Ghent on the way back to Brussels – however the thought of sleeping in and having a more relaxed day won out. Had breakfast and then packed and left the hotel about 1100 (checkout time). Decided to do the small boat trip on the canals before it rained. It was very pretty – started to rain halfway thru but stopped quickly otherwise we would have been very wet.Then went to buy our things which we had been saving up. I agreed to meet the others an hour later and I didthe long walk to the suitcase shop as we were going to fill it with beer and chocolates. However didn’t bargain on Easter Monday with everything being shut – the suitcase shop was the only large shop open apart from souvenir places – but they had sold the one I wanted so didn’t buy anything. Met Andrew and Nancy outside Neuhaus – the bestest chocolate shop which was also closed. It as a bit difficult to tell if it might open at 1330 so I waited around whilst the others went off to buy their beer. Fortunately it did open and I got these amazing coffee chocolates – 1.60euros each – 5 for Andrew and 10 for me. Expensive but worth it.
