Cycling in Brugge & DLP- May 2017

Having had our usual crossing from Hull, expensive at approx £800 return, but well worth it when visiting Belgium without the need to drive all the way down to Dover or the Channel Tunnel, we parked up a what is becoming a regular home from home for us.

Camping Memling and at approx 40 Euro’s per night for us all, it’s not the cheapest but you do get the use of some excellent facilities including showers, toilets, free wifi, useful information points and attentive wardens who are only too happy to assist you should it be required.

With bright blue skies and our family in tow, we headed for another visit to one of favourite places on earth – Brugge.

Not sure what it is about this place but we never seem to get bored with it and theres always something new for us to do & see.

Whether you see the sights by foot, carriage, bus, cycle or even a segway, this is one of the most beautiful cities you could ever visit and with Hot chocolate to die for, what could be better?

Having been many times before, all without bikes, we decided that enough was enough, and we would throw the bikes on the back of Rio and cycle on some of Belgiums excellent purpose built cycle ways.

HELLO UK – we could learn a thing or two about the successful integration of all modes of transport!!!!

The journey from our campsite towards Kruispoort and then along the canal before an ice cream at “waffles on wheels” which is located at the Coach tour drop off point and just a perfect place for a short break before continuing on our way – cycling was never this much fun as a kid………

6 Nights at Camping Memling, Brugge with lots of walking & cycling, one day, all of this exercise might actually pay off!

 

With new aches and pains we left Brugge behind and headed for the next phase of our somewhat predictable vacation, Disneyland Paris.

Routine is the order of the day for our family and a must when travelling with autism however as we get more inquisitive about what else is out there our plans are changing but we always plan and do things as a family, for now anyway…………

I think we deserved a nice pizza after the journey and what a place to sit back & enjoy it.

Big Thunder Mountain looking and running fantastic after major refurbishment prior to the 25th Anniversary Celebrations – this is our favourite ride here, well mine at least!

No matter how old you are, theres always something here which will make you smile and our grins usually go from ear to ear.

As night falls, the park takes on a whole new appearance and WOW, what a show.

We will be back later in the year, making the most of our Annual Passes before we have to renew them – A Bientot Disneyland.
