January 7th, 864

My heart is still in my throat. Papa has given Baldwin an area in the North. It's called Flandria and today we arrived in Bruges. It was very quiet on the way there and we didn't see a living soul for hours. When we were nearly there, we saw a massive bear. Baldwin was so brave! He immediately got off his horse to protect me. I was very scared because the bear was so big, but Baldwin speared the bear with his lance and the danger was gone. We could make our way safely into Bruges.


Any weighty (and not so weighty) comments are welcome!
