Quick weekend trip to Belgium and Holland with Katie and Martin.
I've heard that my writing may not have been up to its usual entertaining self as of late - but unfortunately, given Belgium and Holland's reputation for being a bit boring - this post may not be able to break this trend!
As it turned out, the chocolate, beer and food was really good in Belgium, but overall Brugge was thronged with tourists and not as good as the Cologne markets we went to last year.
On the sunday we popped over the border to Zeeland in Holland - was cool to go to the place New Zealand was named after - but I would have to say that the resemblance ends at the name. Flat, neverending planes punctuated by the occasional heavy industrial site did not remind me greatly of home.
