Wilmslow station at 8-17 - train no 1 to London - the start of the low carbon adventure! Typical virgin train, arrived on time, nothing spectacular but took nearly 3 hours (engineering works - ugh) - quick walk to st Pancras international - we did try the wellness walk (avoiding Euston road) but a lack of signage meant we went on the Euston road anyway! Splendid Eurostar train to Brussels and then a local train to Brussels central and our lovely hotel right near central station( arrived about 5 ish ). Ashes was on and to our great surprise NOW TV app worked overseas - so we watched the end of the test match - OMG what a finish!
Quick change and walk into town - SO many chocolate shops and waffles everywhere - we had a massive beer (pic) and pottered around the shops (also see pic) - then just wandered around - nice city ! Back to the hotel to watch Rory win the Fedex cup
Early-ish start in the morning - should be in Rudesheim for dinner !
