    Usually my tobacco buying trips are within a fifty mile radius of home, but tomorrow it's across the North Sea to Belgium to gather stock for my cellar jars. Living just ten minutes drive from the overnight ferries to mainland Europe, we regularly take advantage of the cheap offers on crossings - at this time of year. The Christmas street markets will be on in Brugge, and while Mrs.Ted looks for bargains, I'll be sitting in the comfortable smoking lounge at 'Gerry's Cigar Bar' with pipe, coffee and cognac, before picking up a few tins from the well stocked shelves, and - of course....a few packs of the native Belgian Semois. Hopefully - I'll have more success with my photography on this trip!:rolleyes:

    I don't hate you, Ted, but sometimes I don't like you.

    Have fun.

    I'm very envious... Isn't that much worse than jealous? Well, whichever is the most, uh. Worsest... Have a good time grabbing yummy tobaccos and drinking. :mad:

    Hi Ted!
    Have a safe and enjoyable journey! I sometimes take a coachtrip from London to Oostend: Only £30 return and the trip is especially designed for bargain shopping!
    And Belgium rocks for reasonably priced tobacco! I think you could even get some of the Dan Pipe Own Brands there!
    If you like them, that is!:)
    All the best!

    Be careful, OT...Dr. Evil is from there! I bet his old neighbors are inept megalomaniacs too...

    Semois, huh? Yeah, you suck! :)

    Dan Tobacco for cheap, and plentiful too?! :eek:

    That alone is almost enough to make me blow my frequent flyer miles on a trip to Belgium. :bing:

    OT, you have a great time and good luck finding everything you are looking for. Also looking forward to some great photography.

    I'm with Snake. A trip to Belgium without partaking of their fine ales would be tragic. Enjoy yourself, OT!
