Today was a travel day from the Netherlands to Belgium. We were reminiscing on the train about how before the European Union the train would stop at the borders of European countries and an official would come on the train and check everyone’s passport. That of course is a thing of the past unless you are a refugee trying to make your way to Europe. We haven’t seen any though have had numerous conversations about how this impacts all of Europe. Lots to look at our the window of the train. We traveled with our bicycles and had very little trouble making the connections. The challenge will be to find our way to the right road to Ghent, our next stop. For the next few days we are in Bruges, a beautiful historical city (at least the historical center is).
