We are in beautiful Bruges today. Gingerbread house town. Lovely. But totally a tourist trap. We are paying nearly double what we paid in Spain for virtually everything.
Cell service is a bargain though. I got a sim card good for not only Belgium but with roaming in Netherlands and France and rest of EU for just 15 euros. Includes 1.5 gigs of data, local calls and 1000 texts.
I love a bargain. Hate paying 3.50 for a stinking half cup of coffee, even if it's great coffee. Same thing in Spain for 1.50.
Have fun. Great place to have a beer and relax. i remember a couple of years ago being shown around by a native belgian. We ate at the oldest pub. Been there since 1515.
Couple weeks ago my editor at Sure Money was concerned. She said, what if you don't have enough shorts or your list when the market crashes. I told her not to worry, that the algorithm and my eyeballs would assure that when the market finally does break that we'd have plenty of shorts on the list because individual stocks start to turn before the market averages.
