IIRC, driving in Belgium wasn't bad, though my wife did the driving while I navigated. Emerging at the Arc de Triomphe in Paris was a different story, though. My wife screamed and then went for it!
I visited Bruges more than 10 years ago because my stepdaughters had been born there. It's a quaint little city known for its medieval architecture and the "Relic of the Holy Blood", reputedly the blood of Jesus. A different cathedral (church?) contains a Michaelangelo statue of "Madonna with child". Your GF may enjoy browsing the little shops selling lace.

Classic colors are midnight navy peacoat and charcoal gray overcoat. Charcoal gray would coordinate with brown shoes/boots, whereas a black overcoat would not.
I also love chukkas instead of plain toe derbies, especially in rain or snow, and own basically what you describe: two pairs of the C&J Tetbury (one black and one brown calfskin) that I wear for business casual, a Carmina brown hatch grain, a Rider Boots model in brown suede, and a C&J for RL MacCallum in brown shell cordovan. I think I'm done buying chukka boots, unless I can find something in burgundy, maybe color #6 shell cordovan (not quite as dark as color #8). I just...
The curvature of the lapel edge is called "belly". You can search the CM forum for more information.
