Decided on a spur-of-the-moment to take a trip to Bruges. I don't think I've been here since, I dunno, 1978. The world has changed, Jim Callaghan's dead, the Boomtown Rats are not at Number 1 in the charts, but Bruges seems pretty unchanged.
Beer and chocolate, waffles and mussels, frites and mayo. Lots of stunning Flemish architecture, good museums, great hotel. Canals, picture postcard views, tri-lingual Belgians... What's not to like?
I think I might do this again. You know, take off, go somewhere. Be free. Be spontaneous.
Next week, I'll be coming from - who knows? Brighton? Burgess Hill? Or - what about Battersea Arts Centre?
Yeah. Goede Nacht. As we say around here.
