The next day we woke up early to a full breakfast with . . . eggs! It was going to be a good day, we then went for a short walk through town passing a kids festival with rock climbing walls, boxing and much more! We made our way to the bike store where I was put on a kids bike, we then rode through the town stopping everyone and then for photos or for a story. It was a great town, lots of old colorful buildings situated between cobble stone roads and curving canals. It was something out of a postcard, the calm of the morning was beautiful and we all enjoyed the water reflections from the canals. After riding in the town, we rode out to the country side passing windmills until we reached a dirt road . . . and here is where the day went downhill real quick. Turns out my bike’s dirt catcher wasn’t installed properly so as I was peddling along mud was splattering all up along my left side, all over! If that wasn’t enough my gears broke, so I was stuck in the easiest gear peddling my heart out but going nowhere. That was fun! Luckily the scenery, horses and cows distracted from the discomfort of the bike. We finally reached the country side town where we settled into a pub for some hot chocolate, that because we were in Belgium was absolutely delicious; thick, creamy, warm and with a biscuit . . . yum! From there was grabbed some lunch said goodbye to Bruges and hit the road for Paris!
