    Dental care is generally “free to a point” as part of your private healthcare.

    Beer was Japanese IPA and a Trappist thing that is awesome!

    Today (winter) was 23 degrees (73f), no cloud, and I was in shorts/t shirt until about 3pm.

    I got an opened but full bottle of Hunnington Cabernet from a wedding that was apparently $80 a bottle. It is good, but I don't know about $80 good.

    Mayor of Bruges is getting fed up with overtourism, fears city is becoming 'a complete Disneyland'

    Mayor of Bruges is getting fed up with overtourism, fears city is becoming 'a complete Disneyland'

    The mayor of Bruges isn’t thrilled about the city’s booming tourism.

    The medieval Belgian city has been seeing an influx of visitors in recent years – 8.3 million in 2018 alone – but Mayor Dirk De fauw says the impact they’re having on the city is very nearly turning the town into “Disneyland.”


    The problem, De fauw says, is that most tourists are day-trippers visiting from cruise ships or other European cities, and they all want to see the same specific regions of the city. As a result, many of the shops that used to operate in those regions have been replaced with those that cater solely to tourists.

    “So what do they sell? Chocolate and beer,” De fauw told Flemish TV Network VRT, per The Guardian. “The inhabitants of Bruges don’t recognize their own city. They see no clothes shops, butchers, bakers. Only chocolate and beer.”

    De fauw is also working to limit the number of cruise ships that can be allowed to dock at the port of Zeebrugge, from five per day to just two. Within the last few weeks, he has also announced that the city would no longer advertise itself as a day-trip destination.

    Some shop owners, however, disagreed with the measures, claiming that the tourists – who outnumber locals in the city center – are more interested in purchasing souvenirs or Belgian beers than they are in groceries or local provisions.


    “The younger people all buy their food from the big supermarkets anyway,” said one vendor who originally sold chickens, but now peddles souvenirs and beer. “That is how it is now. A lot of people in this city live off tourism. OK, not everyone spends money when they come, but many do.”

    “We have to control the influx more if we don’t want Bruges to become a complete Disneyland here,” added the mayor. (iStock)


    But new regulations on stemming the flow of tourists is necessary, De fauw says, in order to retain the charm that makes Bruges special in the first place.

    “We have to control the influx more if we don’t want Bruges to become a complete Disneyland here,” he said.

    A rich client often gives me expensive bottles from his wine cellar...they are indeed tasty
    When I search the label and find out the price I have similar sentiments as you...good but not worth that much $$ to me

    Of course if money is not an object and they like the taste or story of the wine then it is worth it to them.

    I just started my first week straight vacation from work in 7 years. I'm getting blitzed on Tito's right now. 7am tee time though, so may have to call it early.
