Hi,

Staying in Woluwe - St.Pierre, Avenue des Merles, I guess I need to go to Brussels first, then take - a train or a bus?

to Bruges

I booked a hotel there, so the next day I am planning to go back via Ghent -

they say there is a restaurant where one needs to part with one's shoes :))

So lunch in Ghent, sight sightseeing and in the evening back 'at home' in Woluwe

Do you think it's feasible?

Better - faster, cheaper - or both - bus or train?

Did I get it right it's cheaper to travel on weekends? Looks like hotel prices go in the opposite direction... Are there more or fewer tourists and generally crowded?
I was going to stay in Brussels on Sunday and visit the flea market, but I am not sure now...

... Ghent -

..

If this is the one, ' the famous shoe bar ' ... it looks very funny . . tell us about it when you get back .. IF you get back.

Reading that blog, it sounds like you don't need to go all the way to Bruges .. it would be a few Euro cheaper too.

And .. I can't find any bus that goes from Brussels to Bruges, just Blah Blah car share. Surely there is a bus?
