      Brugge, Ghent or Brussels?

      Belgium Jan 12, 2017 at 5:01 PM

      We will be visiting Amsterdam Nov 25 till Dec 3. That is 8 nights. I think 4 nights in Amsterdam will do and thinking of doing the other 4 in Belgium since it's easy to get to by train. Am interested in Brugge. But perhaps just 2 nights there? Any other place in Belgium? Ghent or Brussels?

      Would they all be too similar (canals and more canals)? Really need your input..

      Tq, Mel

      Flemish Stew

      Brugge May 10, 2016 at 2:02 AM

      Hey friends.

      So, we really enjoy tasting local food traditions when traveling, and I guess we cannot skip the Flemish Stew in Brugge!
      Do you know of a place with a really nice stew and not that expensive?

      Already seen some, like the Cambrinus, the Habit or the De Vlaamsche Pot, but they are a little to expensive for our pockets :)

      Thanks for you help, there's nothing like knowing from who already tried it there!

      Portuguese community café

      Hey there!

      On the 15th of May I'll be in Brugge and... It's the last game of my Portuguese team Benfica on the championship.
      Do you know of any place where portuguese people gather so I can see the game with them?

      I guess that in Brussels this would be much easier, but the 15th is already scheduled for visiting Brugge.

      Thank you, happy travels!

    • Best way to travel without a car across Belgium,Netherlands, Germany and France

      Ieper Feb 23, 2016 at 2:48 PM

      I will be undertaking a residency for 5 weeks in Ypres (Lepers) in May 2016. I wish to use local transport to travel , preferably train (mainly weekends). Is it best to buy a ticket at the station for each return trip - given most will be short e.g. Ypres to Ghent, Brussels, Amsterdam or Paris or purchase a Eurail or Benelux train package before I leave Australia.? These appear relatively expensive for limited number of day travel (e.g. up to nine days for a month). My travel will mainly be day trips and return to Ypres. Thanks Kevin

      Small charming villages/places/attractions not in guidebooks

      Ieper Feb 2, 2016 at 5:01 PM


      I am going to be staying near the French/Belgium border for around a week (near Dranouter), which is within a short drive of Ypres. I am going in May 2016 and will have a car. I have read about the main towns and main attractions in guidebooks/online, but am interested in seeing small charming villages/places/attractions which maybe are a bit more off the beaten track or not mentioned in guidebooks.

      I am also interested in shops/places which sell pottery/glassware/handicrafts, etc. but not really finding much info other than visit the main towns.

      I have been reading through guidebooks and done google searches, but most info I find is on the big towns only. I appreciate this request for information is a little vague, but would really be grateful for any thoughts be it in north west Belgium or north east France.

      Thanks for your help in advance and will definitely write on here after I get back,

This is in the last week of September '15 and our problem is accommodation at a reasonable/fair/good/affordable price without meals for 2 nights before our departure. We are in our 50's and experienced travelers.

      Weekend in June

      Hi all
      We're going to Brugge for a weekend in June. We are staying right in the centre and would like to enjoy nice Belgium food. Which restaurant would you recommend for traditional food aimed primarily at locals rather than tourists? We usually enjoy cosy little family restaurants or big busy brasseries with wood & shiny brass decor but not clean, sterile 'trendy' places. Please let me know if your recommendation is best for lunch or dinner or indeed both!
      Many thanks!
