So armed with a spare set of Eurotunnel tickets a trip was called for.
This time, Brugge in Belgium which is only 90 minutes drive up the motorway from Calais.
It is a very pretty city and fun to wander around. We stayed in the Crowne Plaza hotel which was right in the centre (and not the easiest place to get to by car) where we had a good nights sleep before having waffles for breakfast, a bit more exploring and then back home (via the Calais duty free shops).
As usual, all the photos that I took are over on my Photo Album.
As an experiment however for this trip I left my Sony DSLR camera at home and used on the camera on my Samsung Galaxy SII phone and was quite surprised with the outcome.
