I made it in to Bruges, Belgium today after a great week in Champagne. I drove the 300k or so after packing 20 bikes into a van that was likely only supposed to hold half as many. I am actually quite proud of myself since the van had a GPS, but it did not have a GPS power cord, rendering the former completely useless. Despite the fact that I am one of the more geographically challenged people on the planet, however, I used a map and highway signs to get here only an hour later than planned (OK, for the last 5k I turned on the my iPhone, but I figure that does not really count).
I apologize for being rather absent this last week, but I hope to get a few posts out this week as well as catching up on reading the other blogs I follow. In the meantime, here are a few photos from today:
