    Mornin John,
    I don't think it was done commercially and may in the meantime have been stopped by some EU law!
    My 'Educational' trips were when I was 15 and 16, to northern Germany.
    My first VW Beetle experience was being driven round the cobbled streets of Stade, north of Hamburg on the Elbe river, by Ushi, the older sister of my school exchange partner. Aaaah Ushi .... πŸ˜‰

    Just don't remember that at all. We were on an educational holiday but weren't told about tobacco growing. I thought tobacco was only grown in warmer climes. Just goes to show yer.πŸ‘

    Almost the whole country smells of it to a greater or lesser extent John. Farmed and home-grown all over the shop😲

    Funny Doug I don't recall the smell of tobacco in Bruges at all. Home boiled sweets shops, bakers' shops. and beer in Blankenbergh though.πŸ‘ The smell of tobacco I'm very familiar with. My Brother worked in Ogden's and he brought the smell home.πŸ€“

    Evenin John,
    I was also 17 when I was in Bruges, 1968.
    Now I think of it Bruges did smell. But not the canals. it was the tobacco curing that pongedπŸ€” Doug 😎

    Anglo French actually as I met a French girl and Maman. A pair of beauties. Also Anglo English as we were 4 lads an 7 lovely girls . Say no more. I was in Bruges/Brugge not Venice. Go back and read posts correctly LOL Anglo-Italo relations? if you look at my family name Mantova it is the italian for Mantua which is not too far from Venice. it is where Romeo was exiled to when he "SLEW" Tibault. it is also where the opera Rigoletto is set. I have sung the role of the naughty duke of Mantua/Mantova a couple of times. Made interesting reading on cast list. "THE DUKE di MANTOVA/ MANTUA"---- Mr John Mantova .If you don't know the opera he's the one who sings "La Donna et Mobile"πŸ‘

    Don't remember that John, but last time I was was in Bruges / Brugge was 50 years ago stopped there one night while driving through to Germany on my Vespa GS160 scooter.
    Drove down the Rhine to Switzerland. Great trip, apart from the rainπŸ€” Remember the Weinfest in RΓΌdesheim though. Well, most of it πŸ˜‰
    Prost und zum Wohl, Doug 😎
