Ah, yes, Belgium…

In the pursuit of hoppiness, Belgium seems to have become a little forgotten about…   Often, I get asked for my predictions, the looking into the ol’crystal bollocks  and picking out some winners for the grand national of beer.   But, I’ve been caught a little blindsided on this… the numbers of people who are popping to Belgium, either by the Eurostar or coming down to these parts of Deepest Darkest Kent ™ and floating or tunnelling to the mainland.    I wonder, the cost of flights?  Fuel?  quick weekends away?  Cheap Coach Fares.com?    or just people “oh, we haven’t been to Brugge in ages… let’s go restart the fires…” ergo:  I am sure a helluva lot of kids are conceived in Brugge…

But, then there is Ghent too… “Brugge without the tourists” or  Antwerp, cool, trendy town…  and for the multi-cultural experience (or an evening in Moeder) Brussels.

Funny little place, Belgium…

Oh, did I tell you about the beer?

There is a lot going on in Belgium… and, the beers not bad either…   We’re off soon.. see you there.
