As if a complimentary hors d'oeuvre of mozzarella and tomato wasn't enough, I then opted for a four cheese pizza for the following main course! I justified the cheese overload by reminding myself I'd be travelling home the next day and no cheese could taste quite as good as when in Belgium. Our final dinner was enjoyed at Brasserie De Carré (26 Markt at Bruges) and with great pleasure; the staff were wonderful, the bright and breezy decor made for a great environment and the food was delicious.
The wonderful thing about these warmer summer months, is undoubtedly the longer daylight hours. Nine in the evening and I was able to crash out back in our room at the Grand Hotel Casslebergh still with sunlight streaming through the window. Honestly? I was shattered. Had I been that tired in any other circumstance, I probably would have thrown myself into bed, however that's near impossible to do when travelling in any shape or form. I still had a box of praline truffles to devour and a new issue of Elle magazine to read..
The final few hours spent in a country never fail to seem bittersweet and so of course, the weather was beyond beautiful with a sizzling temperature and clear blue sky! There's so much to see at eye-level in Bruges, that you can occasionally forget there's a whole host of architecture waiting to be admired if you only tilt your head up a fraction. If you plan on visiting the historic city at any point in the near future, I suggest you take a moment or two to do a full 360 and admire all that stands above you.

As always, I had such a fantastic time visiting the beautiful city of Bruges; there's an extraordinary amount of things to eat, watch and experience. I really hope you've enjoyed coming along the journey with me through parts one, two and three.. and I hope the sun is shining wherever you may be!
