Poinsettia

 

A very simple one photo post today of a poinsettia that I took in Malta, earlier this year. I just wanted to share the beauty of mother nature. This photograph also appeared in my Instagram stream today.

Bruges - Belgium - Part 2 - Market Day and Cycle Tour of City.


As promised in my last post, here is part two of the trip I made to Bruge last autumn. Today I am sharing photos from Market Day in Bruges and some from a cycle tour we did!












If you are a regular visitor to my Travel Tale Blog you will have noticed how very different this Northern European  Market is to the one I visited in Myanmar.


Cycle Tour of Bruges City 


My visit to Bruges was made by boat, which we hired for a week, as part of a longer road trip driving around France and Belgium. We had bicycles on board which were fun to use for exploring our ports of call! Here is a selection of photos from our exploration of Bruges on two wheels.









If you have already visited this lovely city maybe this post has stirred memories and if not maybe it has inspired you to visit yourself.

Bruges - Belgium - Part 1 - Exploring the City

                         


I visited Bruges for the first time just a few months ago in September as part of an extended road trip to France and Belgium.  I loved the city and posted the above photo on my Instagram account today, which has prompted me to share some photos on Travel Tales of our few days in the city.



We stayed right in the heart of the city, we arrived by boat as part of our trip was taken on the canals of Belgium, more photos of which I will share here in another post.  Above is the boat which was our home for a week, the white one with the bicycles on the stern deck.  It was a lovely mooring, don't you agree?

The rest of the photos will take you on a virtual stroll around the streets of Bruges and speak for themselves. Enjoy your visit!






















Enough for today, hope you have enjoyed your virtual stroll around the city? I have so many photos still to share, that I shall save for further posts when I will share Market Day in Bruges and some from a cycle tour we did!
