Bruges, 21-23 November 2014
To be honest, Bruges wasn't on my list of places to visit and I only went because my friend, Jenny, asked if I wanted to join her to check out the Christmas markets there. I'm glad I tagged along for the weekend! This is a small city where you can aimlessly wander around only to be captivated by its nature, charming architecture and serene canals, especially in perfect weather. It's the ideal destination for a peaceful weekend away.
I also watched 'In Bruges', starring Colin Farrell, before the trip to get a taste of Bruges (I tend to watch movies that are set in a city I am going to visit). It's a good movie, lots of black humour.
Of course, being in Belgium, we stuffed our faces with mussels, fries, waffles and chocolate... really...good...chocolate.
