Across the English Channel

Monday, 15-06-2015. Day 299. 

› On a Ferry from Calais to Dover. 

Monday morning it was straight outta Bruges and right into Calais so we could catch the ferry across the English Channel to Dover. This would be our last day in the Schengen Area. And it wasn't long before we saw the White Cliffs and arrived in Dover.

Brussels to Berlin to Copenhagen

Brussels to Berlin to Copenhagen

German Interlude

(Or, a Funny Thing happened on the way to Berlin)

We drive from Brussels to Berlin so we can catch a flight to Copenhagen, but not before stopping in Brühl, Germany to adventure through Phantasialand, the best theme park you've (probably) never heard of.

Belgium Beer Tour

Belgium Beer Tour

Every Country Has Its Beer 

(But some are better than others). 

On our travels around the world, we've had some great beer, but there's no place else quite like Belgium. There are no limits to what ingredients can be added to a Belgian beer. Consequently, the sheer number of beer styles brewed in Belgium is staggering. And I was fortunate enough to take a tour of Belgian beer in Brussels.

Further Explorations in Brussels

A Smurfy Look at the EU's Capital City. 

We weren't in Brussels for that long—only two full days—so we tried to pack in a lot of exploration after we'd finished our Sandeman's Free Walking Tour of Brussels. Here's what our explorations turned up.
