Bruges ~ Belgium

Posted: September 8th, 2013 | Author: | Filed under: Places, Videography | No Comments »

I’ve never thought of going to Belgium, let alone going to Bruges but a few years ago I watched In Bruges. It was a nice little film and Bruges looked intriguing. This summer I also did a little road trip to the Nurburgring in Germany and on the way passed through Belgium, it was only an hour away from Calais so a thought of visiting Bruges ran through my mind. I ran the idea past Janice and she jumped at the idea, so we booked the Euro Tunnel and booked a little bed and breakfast just outside of Bruges. We set off mid July and was blessed by great weather, we were going to head there with the roof down on the Mazda but it was too hot! All in all it was a beautiful city to visit for the weekend, not too far and not too close, loads to see and hear and lots of memories to be had. If you have a car and anywhere remotely close, do it!

I decided to bring along the camera and test out the Manfrotto B62B-1 Monopod much to Janice’s dismay. I had a few lenses on me but had to chose at the beginning of the day what I was to carry as I did not want to carry the whole kit. I think it’s safe to say that if I brought my whole kit I would have totally missed the point of the trip – which was to relax, enjoy the city and spend time with the other half. This is for you Jan, hope it brings back those memories!
