When it came time for us to leave Belgium the journey home was as much an adventure as the rest of the weekend had been.
A tram first of all to take us to Gent Sint Pieters station.
Then a double decker train to Brussels. I’ve never been upstairs on a train before so this was very exciting (and gave me my favourite travel related photograph above).
Then finally the Eurostar back to St Pancras to be greeted by the newly unveiled (and dressed) statue.
Then…as if by magic…we followed the signs for Arrivals and found ourselves back in the concourse exactly where we had started from.
