Turning left at Calais, we opted to visit the captivating city of Bruges on the day it celebrates its liberation towards the end of the second world war. The liberation on the 12th of September in 1944 is now celebrated by almost every house flying Bruges's iconic flag (red and white stripes with a blue dragon)
However Bruges' history goes much further back than 1944 with a past of riches and woes to match any city in Europe!!
On our earlier visit to Bruges, we'd sadly picked up the only day of rain of the entire Leg 3 of our European Adventures. The city shimmered on that day, but it positively sparkled today...
With the sun setting, we all returned back to our motorhomes at the fantastic city centre 'aire' for an evening of fun and games followed by the kids playing cards with their grandparents...Precious memories made in a very special first day of European motorhoming for Richard's parents.
