I've always loved a train journey... is it so very terrible that I am excessively excited about the Eurostar one tomorrow?! Forget flea markets, canals, frites with mayo, Flemish art, Belgian chocolates...I'm just really looking forward to settling down with a good book*, the latest Vogue, a few English plums and some of the best (and probably most expensive!) jellybabies in London (from here) whilst the English, French and Belgian countryside rushes by. I'm exaggerating of course; I am really looking forward to being in Bruges too, but the weekend is made all the more appealing by a good old train journey at either end!

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend, I'll be back next week with photos.

* I haven't yet starting this book, 'The Great Lover' by Jill Dawson, so cannot in fact assert whether it is good or not, but it features romance, Rupert Brooke AND The Orchard Tearooms in Granchester (one of my favourite escape-from-it-all places whilst at university in Cambridge) so here's hoping...


  1. cor, what a treaty weekend! have fun!

  2. Hope you're having a great time..!
    Just letting you know as well that i've given you an award:
