Mouse was beginning to get a bit bored at home waiting for the cold weather to set in so he decided to take a quick trip and have a weekend adventure. Now you will no doubt be already aware that Mouse is quite partial to Chocolate, as well as cheese of course.
In a previous adventure Mouse went to a chocolate factory in the UK, but he knew that the best chocolate in the world comes from Belgium. So it was the obvious place to go........Bruges.
An early start meant that Mouse could catch an early train and be in Bruges in time for lunch. Hhhmmmmmm what would he have?
There were so many historic buildings to see and Mouse had a lovely tour around.
Mouse woke up with a bit of a sore head. That beer really was strong. So he needed to get a good breakfast before doing anything else. Imagine Mouse's surprise when he realised that Belgium is also famous for Waffles, and you can have them for breakfast!!
The first thing on Mouse's list for the day was to see the canal that weaves it's way across the city.
It was beautiful so he decided to take a boat trip to see the city from water level.
After the boat trip Mouse was getting peckish again so he went looking for a snack. He came across a shop that not only sold Belgian chocolate but also the widest selection of marzipan that you could imagine. He opted for Banana Split flavour.
Next on his list was to see how Belgian chocolate is made so it was off to the Chocolate Museum for a demonstration.
Mouse found a place that sold over 400 different beers. So many that it took an entire wall to display them and every single beer has it's own special glass that it is served in. A Belgian would never serve a beer in the wrong glass.
Mouse knew that he wouldn't get to try them all but this place sold a trial set of 4 small beers so he though that would be a good idea.
The best surprise for Mouse though was when he found out that it is quite normal in Belgium to eat cheese when drinking beer. Now he really was in heaven.
Mouse hopes you enjoyed this adventure and he will be back soon for another one. Why not sign up HERE to the Where The Heck Is Mouse? newsletter so that every adventure is delivered direct to your inbox.
