Rain Sun Cobbles, Belgium

Belgium / Bruges / Brussels / Ghent | November 13, 2015

Synonymous with Brussels is the truly astonishing Grand Place, it is quite literally breathtaking, one of Europe’s most spectacular architectural triumphs, if not one of the most famous. Our accommodation was at the wonderful 4* family run Leopold Hotel, just a short 15-20 minute walk through the picturesque Brussels park  from the Central rail station.

Four days in Belguim

Belgium / Bruges / Brussels / Eurostar / Ghent | October 1, 2015

Not many jobs will pay you to go on holiday and stay in some of the nicest hotels Europe has to offer. But that’s exactly what was asked of me in my third week of working for Railbookers. My adventure started on a morning Eurostar from London St Pancras International to Lille in northern France.

Bruges vs Ghent

Belgium / Bruges / Ghent | June 20, 2014

Last time I went to Bruges was from college so my memory of the place was quite hazy to say the least. In fact, a distant memory would be more accurate. So I was very excited to be going there again. This time, however, we were also combining it with a day in Ghent.

After changing trains we had a short wait before we were on our way to Bruges. The sun shining gloriously made for a striking journey as we cruised through the Belgian countryside.

Winter in Belgium

Belgium / Bruges / Brussels / Eurostar | February 3, 2014

My first ever experience of Belgium, and I was definitely not disappointed. Arriving by rail made it so much more enjoyable. Eurostar itself may be ready for a make over. However, not having to arrive an hour before departure, face the numerous security and bag measuring checks you now have to undertake at an airport was brilliant.

Martin's Relais Oud Huis Amsterdam - in Bruges.

Belgium / Bruges | April 22, 2013

Bruges really does have the best collection of historic hotels, which transfer you back to an era of decadence and drama. After a short walk along the picturesque Spiegelrei Canal, past a road of imposing properties and down cobbled streets, we finally arrived at the Martin’s Relais Oud Huis Amsterdam. The 13th century building was very imposing with large windows facing the opposite street across the canal.
