Christmas Night Dinner in Brugge

We’ve just finished a wonderful meal in the restaurant of the Crowne Plaza Hotel where we are staying in Brugge. The food was superb and the service was excellent. The all-inclusive price included champagne and wine.

We had a table by the window and that enabled me to look out across the town square. I could see people strolling around the square and the occasional carriage gliding past, drawn by a horse on the trot. The illuminated buildings in the background provided a beautiful backdrop.

It was a magical scene – the type of which I have only ever seen on Christmas cards. The temperature was nearly 0C and a quick venture outside the door proved that it was very cold. With a little imagination, I could almost see snowflakes falling past the window. This is just about my complete impression of a real Christmas in Europe.

This view has made my entire day. To have this scene outside the window and my family with me inside the restaurant is very special. I just stared out the window in awe for a good part of the meal.
