Scary

Jason and I returned from Bruges last night and were scanning the headlines online. We read about the resort bombing in Turkey and it hit just a teensy bit too close to home. I was hell bent on going to Istanbul for this Bank Holiday weekend and the only reason we didn't was because we had set aside a certain budget for the transportation/hotel portions of the trip and couldn't find a package in Istanbul that fit into that range. Granted, the bombing apparently wasn't near Istanbul but we were really under the impression that the resort and tourist areas of Turkey were really safe these days.

Anyway, Bruges was absolutely beautiful and we had a great and relaxing trip. What to do in Belgium besides eat mussels and chocolate and drink beer? When in Belgium, do as the Belgians do, we say. I'll try to get photos up by tomorrow...

I'm glad you had a great time in Belgium. Look forward to seeing the pictures. All of these bombings, plane crashes, etc. are very scary, but I'm glad you made it back to London safely. Take care.
